Killer Bs and Soviet Rally Cars with guest James Gilboy

Cars & Comrades published on

In this episode we explore the history of rally racing, from early time-speed-distance rallies through to the killer Group B cars of the '80s, and the prototypes of Group S.  Thanks to James Gilboy for joining us on this one, you can read his writing here: https://www.thedrive.com/author/james-gilboy

Before the main topic (1:07), we discuss our various project cars, what kind of welder to buy, Brandon's 5G conspiracy theory, and the Jeep Cherokee, a shitty car with a racist name.
