The 205 Turbo 16, which made a good start in the latter half of the previous year, won the championship early with seven wins this year, and Peugeot won the season with overwhelming strength.Driver's titleNissanHave been transferred sinceTimo SalonenWins with 5 wins.On the other hand, from this year, the engine output has increased from around 300 horsepower to around 450-600 horsepower, and it is huge for the purpose of improving aerodynamic characteristics.Aero PartsWill be added.

In Round 5 Tour de Corse, Rally 037 driven by Bedega crashed into a standing tree and died as it was.Round 8Argentina RallyThen Vatanen lost control in a straight line and suffered a big crash and was seriously injured at a level that was said to be unrecoverable.However, even in the midst of these serious accidents, there were no voices pointing out the dangers of the category, and with the support of the spectators, Group B became even sharper.

In the final round of the RAC rally, Lancia, whose homologation was approved just before,Lancia Delta S4Is thrown in.Twin charged engineIs placed vertically in the rear midship and drives four wheels.While Peugeot had made it an important issue to make it look like a mass-market car, it was a machine that had nothing in common other than the name.Delta S4 showed overwhelming performance in the debut match,Henri Toivonen, Allen's drive finished 1-2.

No runaway of B car performance was found.In the end, the Portuguese Rally was an unusual situation in which all manufacturers withdrew from the competition and the rest of the schedule was contested only by privateers.

The ruling changed the rankings of Allen and Kankkunen 10 days after the final round, and Kankkunen won his first title.

Although it is a Group B car that was excluded from the championship, due to the protests of privateers, lower class cars were able to run even though they were not eligible for the championship points.Group B / Class 10Citroen Visa MilpistHas run in most of the 1987 season against Europe and finished 7th overall in the opening round in Monte Carlo.These low-horsepower "small" Group B cars could be seen mainly in European rallies by privateers until the early 1990s when homologation expired.On the other hand, the Peugeot 205 Turbo 16WheelbaseModified such as extensionParis-Dakar RallyParticipated in the war, and won two victories with the success of Vatanen and Kankkunen.
