The Audi Quattro was the first to combine four-wheel-drive and a turbocharged engine. It never won any awards for sophistication, but those weren’t the awards it was concerned about. The Quattro was also the first to run with more than 300bhp, it was ransformed from Group 4 into Group B in 1983, where it also met great success.
The Quattro dominated rallying from the start of 1981 until late 1984 (when the Peugeot 205 T16 took over). Quattros won no fewer than 23 World rallies in the early-to-mid 80’s, won the Makes Championship in 1982 and 1984, and drivers Hannu Mikkola (1983) and Stig Blomqvist (1984) took the World Drivers' series in Quattros.

Not only has Graham competed in many British and European events, he's also reported on marathons in South America, and acted as a traveling controller in the legendary London-Mexico World Cup Rally. As a recognized authority on many aspects of classic cars and motoring of that period, he is the most prolific of all authors, with more than 130 published books to his credit.
