Codemasters have sent along a new trailer for their hotly anticipated DiRT 3 rally game, showcasing the game's Group B Rally mode, hailed as a "golden age" of motorsport and featuring cars such as "the Audio Sport quattro Rally and Lancia Delta S4 hammering through forest roads and across arid scrublands".
Group B is synonymous with a short-lived period in Rally where light regulation and few restrictions on car development led to manufacturers producing some of the most exciting cars that the sport has ever seen. Group B cars have since entered Rally folklore since cars with their astonishing power couldn’t have been developed during any other era of the sport. Sadly, these iconic cars were involved in an increasing number of accidents, which resulted in the banning of Group B Rally in 1986.
The gameplay video showcases these super-charged icons of Rally being put through their paces in wide ranging conditions, from tarmac to dirt and snow. In DiRT 3, the Group B discipline gives players the ultimate test as they jump behind the wheel of some of the most famous cars to compete in the sport including the Ford RS200, MG Metro 6R4 and Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2.
