GROUP 4 TRANSFERS
In 1982, when the new regulations took effect, previously homologated Group 4 cars could get transferred into Group B if the manufacturer applied for the change. 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.
