NOTICE: THE FILM WON’T HAPPEN IF IT IS NOT FUNDED – THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO BE PART OF GROUP B HISTORY: DONATE TODAY!
The Rally Group B Shrine proudly began assisting early-on and continues to aid Director Bret Dodd of Petrolhead Productions for the upcoming documentary “Go Like Hell – The Battle for the 1986 World Drivers Championship” and its very important crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
The film will focus on the last three rallies of the 1986 season and subsequently the end of the Group B era. With brand new interviews, the documentary’s centre of attention will be on the fierce competition between Juha Kankkunen and Markku Alén, to determine the World Drivers Championship and how that championship was overturned ten days later in France. We will also reveal the stories behind the scenes from co-drivers Juha Piironen and Ilkka Kivimaki, and Lancia-Martini Team Boss, Cesare Fiorio, and Peugeot Talbot Sport Director and former FIA President Jean Todt. The documentary will also feature historic rally footage as well as never before seen photographs. Currently, the running time is planned to be between 60 and 90 minutes – depending on the final budget.
There is a sense of urgency for projects such as this, because nobody is getting younger and securing the extraordinary stories from the people that made the era we all cherish is paramount. After these persons are gone, so will their untold stories and anecdotes. That is why documentaries like this are of prime importance and are in need of everyone’s support!
