There was nothing in the rules to state that headlights needed to remain at the same height as showroom counterparts, so we had the flatnose of the Porsche 935. Overall width was governed, but so generously that wheelarch extensions took styling to the extreme. Just how wild would the Zakspeed Capri look next to an Essex boy racer's 2.8i? And there there were the uncompromising chin spoliers and wings to complete the look.
Group 5 cars were recognisible, yet taken to the extreme at the same time. It made for a spectacular high speed demonstration at Members' Meeting, and this gallery captures the action.
