“The Shrine of Pride”, it sounds like something you’d find in some cheesy RPG game… but for me my Rally Group B Shrine has truly become a source of much pride. It is becoming THE go-to website for anything Group B with growing respect and interest from my peers. I am getting more frequent information contributions and I should be finally able to offset the website hosting fees with some good old fashioned partner advertising. Expect that to pop up in the next few months. What I am truly proud of is that I was recently contacted by book authors and magazine editors to have information found in my website featured in printed media.
It is my honor to having helped author Bill Munro with his work on the Ferguson 4WD Formula book (a system thrown to the forefront by Group B)! I was promised “special thanks” credit. Look for it to be published soon!
Furthermore, it is very much so my honor, again, to have provided free of charge my comprehensive article about the Ford Escort RS 1700T Group B Prototype as a background story to a story of Pacenotes Rally Magazine, soon to be published in the February 2017 issue! I should get full credit to my name alongside a printed link to my Shrine. Oh and a free copy, of course!
For me, this makes all the hundreds of hours spent on researching Group B all the worthwhile. Even though I would have liked best to having taken part of it in the 80’s, ensuring that its history is not forgotten is a cool spiritual redemption. Finding that some people respect my work and dedication is all the thanks I’d ever wish for!
