Mitsubishi Galant General Information

The Mitsubishi Galant VR4 was the first serious car by Mitsubishi under the new groupA rules. With this car the whole attitude of Mitsubishi changed. Previous group4 and groupB projects seemed half hearted. With the Galant Mitsubishi not only created a groupA car, but a groupN version alongside. Of course, with groupA you had to have at that time 5000 road cars for homologation, so the groupN homologation was on the hand. However Mitsubishi put some serious development into this car specifically for groupN competition. It had as a road car an engine of perfect configuration for groupN competition, 4x4 and 4 wheel steering, latter however was changed again as it seemed to make the handling awkward. Until then groupN cars were basically just road cars with a roll cage.

As Mitsubishi was not really a classic rally manufacturer - or more to the point never had a serious rally program until that point - privateers were not convinced that a Mitsubishi was the car they wanted for groupN. Indeed, you rarely saw any groupN results for the Galant, while the groupN time sheets kept being dominated by Ford and Lancia. Only in Sweden and Finland the groupN Galant was a regular entry, and indeed on the two corresponding WRC events you are hard pushed to find a year from 1989 the category was not won by a Mitsubishi. Slowly Mitsubishi started to gain a grip on groupN.
