4WD vs. FWD vs. RWD in Rallycross: What's Fastest?

On a slippery half pavement/half dirt track, what's fastest: a 4WD Audi sedan, a FWD Toyota Coupe, or a pair of RWD two-doors, a RX7 and a Porsche 911?


The question of which layout isn't exactly settled with this 1991 race, but on the tight course it's surprising that the front-drive Celica hangs right onto the four-wheel-drive Audi 90. That is, until it spins.

I think the only conclusion we can make is that vintage rallycross is awesome.
