Lancia Racing
Vincenzo Lancia, the founder of Lancia, had cut his teeth on motorsport in 1907 and 1908, but once he had set up his own company he turned his back on the sport. However, in 1951 Gianni Lancia backed a private team of Lancia Aurelia B21 cars on the Tour of Sicily, and having convincingly won their class against the formidable Alfa Romeo 1900s, he was persuaded to create the Lancia Racing Team in 1952. However, Lancia's entry into Formula One racing, even with its innovative V8 engine and side fuel tanks was disastrous. When Alberto Ascari was killed in 1955 Ferrari took over the Lancia operation. Privateers continued to put Lancia on the podiums and from 1963 Lancia established 'Lancia HF' (High Fidelity), notably with the Lancia Fulvia. The Fulvia was followed by the Stratos which claimed the WRC for 1974, 75 and 1976. After that Lancia developed the Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo for racing tracks and won the Endurance category World Championship in 1980 and 1981. A development of this car, the Lancia 037, took back the 1983 World Rally Championship. From 1987 to 1993 Lancia's Delta 4WD car claimed Rally Championships.

Lancia LC2 1984 and Cheetah CT606
Lancia LC2 1984. Lancia 3-litre C1 racer overtaking the Cheetah CT606 at Donington Historic Festival, May 2013. Lancia created a new Lancia C1 Spyder for the new Group C racing class in time for the inaugural 1982 season. Lancia had earlier taken the 1979, 1980 and 1981 World Sportscar Championships in Group 5 with a Lancia Beta Montecarlo silhouette racer powered by a 1.4-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. Gianpaulo Dallara was asked to design the chassis, and the 1.4-engine was given to the new LC1. The LC2 was conceived as a car capable of winning outright, and not just the class, and was given a 2.65-litre version of the Ferrari 308 quattrovavo V8 engine fitted with twin KKK turbochargers.
Lancia Rally Car 037 front
Lancia 037. The 037 was developed by Abarth, and very much an evolution of the original Abarth 030 which came to the market as the Lancia Beta Montecarlo. The 037 used only the mide section of the Montecarlo. A 2-litre Supercharged engine gave the 037 enough power as a Group B Rally car to win the 1983 WRC.
