Rally fans vividly remember the 1980s as the 'wild days' for world rallying, when the Group B Supercars reigned supreme, and when 600 horsepower monster literally did wheel-stands under power.

We've tracked down the 1985 1000 Lakes Rally on YouTube - the event when the flame-spitting Audi Quattro Sport S1 made its debut.

The rally that year was a perfect showcase for the Group B projectiles with the category at its peak. All the big guns were competing that year, including Markku Alen, Hannu Mikkola, event and championship winner Timo Salonen, Henri Toivonen, Bjorn Waldegard, Stig Blomqvist, Juha Kankkunen, Per Eklund, Pentti Airikkala, Kalle Grundel (deputising for the injured Ari Vatanen), and Lasse Lampi.

Other vehicles included the Lancia Rally 037 (driven to the max by Alen), the Peugeot 205 T16 E2, Toyota Celica Turbo, the Audi Quattro A2, and many more.

Sit back and enjoy the action!
