So, who missed ‘Madness on Wheels: Rallying’s Craziest Years’ last night? Well don’t worry. You can click these blue words to catch up.

We recommend you do: it’s a 60-minute documentary will take you through the journey of rallying and onto Group B. Four years of madness when fans, ambitions, politics and cars collided to provide one of the most unforgettable eras of motorsport ever.

There’s breathtaking archive footage of some of the most ludicrously powered cars ever produced: Lancia Delta S4s, Peugeot 205 T16s, Audi Sport quattros, Ford RS200s and Austin Metro 6R4s all make noisy, sideways and very airborne appearances.

The four ‘Golden Years’ are shown in all their glory, but so are the tragedies that caused the demise of the short-lived unrestricted period. The people that were part of it, including rally royalty Ari Vatanen, Walter Rohrl, Stig Blomqvist, Jean Todt and Michele Mouton all provide their opinions on the wild times, too.

Tell us what you think of it in the handy box below…
