FIA - World Rally Championship Season - 1985

This is a DVDRiP of the Duke DVD 1985 RAC World Rally Championship season review.

The 1985 World Rally Championship season was the 13th season of the Fédération
Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) World Rally Championship (WRC). The season
consisted of 12 rallies following the same schedule as the previous season.

Peugeot Talbot Sport, having made a successful late-season entry to the Group B
with their new Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 car, returned in 1985 for a full season with
the car. Ari Vatanen, who had won three of the last four rallies of 1984 in the
car, also returned with the team and in the first rally of the season, passed
Walter Röhrl's Quattro in the snowy and icy terrain after incurring an eight-minute
penalty caused by co-driver Terry Harryman's error. At the Swedish Rally, Vatanen
won again, establishing himself as the early favorite for a driver's title, as well
as putting Peugeot ahead of Audi.

A disaster struck in May at the Tour de Corse. On the 4th stage of the rally,
Italian driver Attilio Bettega crashed his Lancia 037 into a tree and got killed
instantly. His co-driver Maurizio Perissinot survived the crash uninjured. The crash
raised questions about the safety aspects of Group B cars. Ironically, exactly one
year later at the same event Henri Toivonen suffered a similar fatal accident
forcing FIA to ban Group B.

Unfortunately, Vatanen had a major accident in Argentina while speeding down a long,
straight road in top gear when his car crashed and rolled end-over-front. The flimsy
exterior of the car shattered, but the strong rollcage absorbed most of the impact.
The drivers were airlifted to hospital by Peugeot's helicopter, and Vatanen's
injuries were severe and seemed life-threatening. Although he would recover and
return to the sport, the Peugeot team was forced to turn to its other driver,
Timo Salonen. Salonen had already taken the points lead and finished with the
driver's championship on the strength of five rally wins.

Audi Sport faced the dual pressure of Peugeot's strong 205 car in competition,
and waning company commitment to the Quattro rally program. With the danger of
Group B rally becoming a more publicized issue, the company was questioning its
involvement in the sport unless major changes were made to improve safety. While
both Stig Blomqvist and Walter Röhrl were retained as drivers, they suffered
generally at the hands of the Peugeot team although they would ultimately place
second and third respectively. Their season however only included a single rally win
between them, with Röhrl's triumph at Sanremo proving to be Audi's last Group B
victory in the World Rally Championship.

The Lancia Martini team's season was an even greater disappointment than Audi's.
The rear-wheel drive Lancia Sport 037 met with little success, even in the hands of
such drivers as Markku Alén, Massimo Biasion, and Henri Toivonen. Toivonen would suffer
an accident, breaking three vertebrae in his neck early on and missing most of the
season[1]. The team awaited the arrival of the Delta S4, a four-wheel-drive car, hoping
it would give them a competitive advantage. Arriving for the final rally of the season,
the RAC Rally, it succeeded in collecting the victory and giving the team hope for
competing in the following season.

Austin Rallying made its entrance to the rally scene with the new MG Metro 6R4 and its
3.0L V6 engine, taking a podium position at the RAC. Austin's success would be brief
however, as the Metro would struggle in the final season of Group B competition in 1986.

As with previous seasons, while all 12 events were calculated for tallying the drivers'
scores, only 11 of the events applied to the championship for manufacturers. The event
in 1985 which applied only to driver standings was Rallye Côte d'Ivoire.
