Lancia 037 Rallye

Not every manufacturer went the turbo route: Lancia's first GpB offering was supercharged. 037 made its WRC debut in Corsica in May 1982. It was inauspicious: Markku Alén could not get his to handle predictably and was ninth. while Attilio Bettega was wrestling his along in third place when he had a massive accident and was airlifted to hospital. If it failed to make an impression in 82, 037 made...

Lancia As A Driver

Sir, I was greatly interested in reading Mr. Gerald Rose's letter in your March issue on the subject of Lancia, with its analysis of the temperament of the old impetuous F.I.A.T. maestro. I believe his findings to be basically correct, though some mention of Lancia's spectacular victory at Brescia in 1904 might well have been considered. The Italian's sensational 72 m.p.h. average was more or...

The Eight Clubs At Silverstone

ON June 3rd eight clubs—Hants & Berks, Darrow, Cernian, Chiltern, 750, Lagonda, Lancia and A.C. Owners—got together for a race meeting at Silverstone. The day was an immense success, largely thanks to the organising ability of Barclay Ingliss of the first-named club. Two one-hour high-speed trials preceded the races, the first for 1,100-c.c. and 1 1/2-litre cars, the second for 3-litre and...

Road test; Fiat X1/9

Soldiering on • • After 17 years, everybody's favourite Fiat is being phased out. The last X1/9s have rolled off the Bertone lines, and about 300 are on their way to this country to satisfy a demand which has tapered off over the years but never quite disappeared. In fact, last year Fiat UK sold 900 X1/9s, more than it did in 1987, helping towards a grand total over the years of around 180,000...

XIV Grand Prix de Monaco

A really convincing win for Moss Monte Carlo, May 13th. The Classic Grand Prix of Monaco, held through the streets of Monte Carlo, was once again for Formula 1 cars and counted in the World Championship series, being the second in the 1956 list. Naturally all the big factory teams entered, leaving very little room for private owners, and in view of the town circuit being short and narrow a...

Lombard RAC Rally When Carlos Sainz crashed out of contention on the 1000 Lakes Rally, then rolled several times during the Commonwealth Bank Rally of Australia, it was thought that these were just fleeting slips, unlikely to be repeated elsewhere. His fight to keep his world title would go on undiminished. However, rallies can be lost for reasons other than human error, and in the three events...
