Rallying in the Eighties. We know what it’s all about, right? It’s all about Group B. But what does Group B mean to you? That would very much depend on which side of Iron Curtain you were brought up on.

To the west, it was all Audi, Peugeot, Lancia and Austin Rover. To the east… nobody really knew. Even in the Soviet Union in the 1980s, success in rallying was never something that was talked about. But the Lada was central to the story.

And so were a group of Estonian drivers who defied the odds – and, at times, Moscow – to demonstrate their speed and ability in the sport they loved and lived for.

From the makers of Ott Tänak – The Movie comes Legends of the Winding Roads – an incredible piece of rallying cinematography. This is the story behind the film.
