Conceived in 1983, built in 1985 and 1986, and rallied strongly in 1986, the RS200 not only looked purposeful but was only at the start of a promising career when the FIA killed off the controversial Group B category.

Although Ford had already built 200 cars to satisfy homologation requirements, the RS200’s career was brought to an abrupt close, and Ford Motorsport’s efforts were almost entirely negated.

Graham Robson was closely involved with the project throughout its tempestuous career, noting (and sometimes experiencing) all the concept stages, the engineering process, the styling, development, and manufacture, followed by a four-year period when he drove RS200s as normal road cars.

This is the complete story, as related by the top management, designers and enthusiasts who ran, and competed with, the cars themselves, along with many details of when, where and how, all the elements of the design came together.

But this is not merely a trawl through the archives, as Robson persuaded top personalities including Ford Motorsport boss Stuart Turner, engineer John Wheeler and project manager Mike Moreton to fill in the details.

This is a complex, visually and technically enthralling tale, which provides inside information of probably the bravest sporting programme ever tackled by Ford UK.
