Race return for GpC Lancia

The Lancia LC2 that claimed the Italian marque’s most significant Group C victory at the 1985 Spa 1000Kms will return to racing next year. Lancia LC2, chassis number three, is on course to compete in the Group C/GTP Racing series in the hands of Duncan McKay.

McKay said: “Because I jumped straight into motor racing in Group C, I thought it best to stick to a C2 for a while, but now I feel the time is right to move up to the Lancia.”

McKay’s Lancia was part of the Martini-backed factory squad from 1983 to ’85 and won at Spa in the hands of Mauro Baldi, Bob Wollek and Riccardo Patrese.
