GROUP 4 TRANSFERS
In 1982 when Group B was introduced to replace Groups 4 & 5, under the FISA transition rules, previously homologated Group 4 cars could get transferred into Group B if the manufacturer applied for the change. This feature was to allow time for manufacturers to develop a car under the new regulations while still having a model that could compete in the interim. It also allowed privateers to continue competing with the cars they already owned. It is notable to mention that the first year of Group B was run almost entirely with Group 4 transfers. Here they are;
The “true” Group B homologation specials that were built entirely from scratch specifically to compete in the class are highlighted in RED.
Some manufacturers used an existing production model but built a limited series of modified cars specifically for Group B homologation. These “semi-homologation” cars are highlighted in ORANGE.
The manufacturers that used mainstream high volume (production) vehicles for Group B homologation are highlighted in GREEN.
Group 4 based homologation specials are highlighted in BLUE.
