If you read this website, then likely Group B rally racing needs no introduction. The 1980s era of rallying that spawned the Audi Sport quattro amongst other motoring icons was short-lived and ultimately too fast and deemed too dangerous to continue. It is the backdrop of those incredible rallying years in which a new period movie also called Group B is based.

Set to drop later this year, Group B, stars Richard Madden, best known for his role on Game of Thrones but this time playing driver Shane Hunter who aims return to competition amidst this very dangerous era of racing. Unlike Ron Howard's epic Rush movie covering the 1976 battle in Formula 1 between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, Group B is essentially fiction. Even still, the trailer (below) takes you back to a magical time in motor racing.

Audi Sport quattro Group B Rally Car a.k.a. "S1"

Alas, the star car appears to be a Group B-spec MG Metro, but we're hoping there'll be plenty of cameos by the Audi Sport quattro S1, as well as other Group B era greats like the Porsche 959, Ford RS200, Lancia Delta S4, Ferrari 288 GTO and more.

Watch the trailer below.
