The 1980s are remembered for a lot of things, but in the motorsport world those years represent the golden era of rallying. Group B took the World Rally Championship and turned it on its head.

Opening a window and picking up my camera, I go for a few shots, but one car is moving faster and requires more precision than others. That car is Martin Richard’s Datsun 140Z and this is the first picture I took of it.
