Really sad story. Been a Motorsport fan, but not on its history, I was saddened to find this out and the mystery surrounding this incident 🤔

Spelling the end of the class B category in rallying.

It is truly a sad story. Toivonen's death was the last nail in Group B's coffin. Earlier in the season a car ran into a crowd killing 3 people,2 of which were children. It could have been much worst. Group B cars were monsters ! These cars were said to have 700 - 800 H.P. but with the turbo boost cranked up they ran 1000 H.P . I was a different time back then. Probably the most exciting and dangerous racing in motor sport. Here's some footage of the madness !    https://youtu.be/zpzOf4-6GoE
