Overview
In the late 1970's the problem facing any manufacturer that wanted to continue taking part in the World Rally Championship during the next decade was that the rules were being changed. Not only that but nobody knew until it was almost too late what form those new rules would take. This book takes the reader through the reasons for the new rules and the solutions that all potential contenders would have to consider if they wanted to win rallies at World Championship level. In particular, the subject of the book, Lancia's Rally, was the car that was developed quickly to deal with the then-dominant Audi Quattro. The reasons it succeeded are featured here along with an in-depth, behind closed-doors, look at the development of the car with the close help and cooperation of it's designer and chief engineer Ing. Sergio Limone. Here you can read how he decided the basic configuration of the car, what the rules would allow and how the project unfolded in total secret at Fiat's various test tracks and centers in and around Turin overlaid with rumor and counter-rumor as the world's motoring press tried to make sense of what little knowledge they could glean of the project's progress. In addition, Ing. Limone's own photographs, from areas never allowed access to the public, tell their own story.
