CA08d,#29 Imola 1000 km 1984, P. Martini - M. Baldi

Due for release is's 'tiptop' Lancia LC2 which competed in the 1000km Imola in 1984. Sure to be very popular, the new Lancia LC2 comes with a lightened cockpit and a body weight of 19.5 grams!  The tiptop livery is particularly striking and I always appreciate the attention to detail ensure, the '84 LC2 has a small front wing on the nose which looks great.

From the Team: 'The LC2 was created by Lancia to race in the Sport-Prototype category, according to the Group C regulations. It was engaged for the first time in 1983. Designed by Dallara, it was powered by a Ferrari engine, with head deri- ved from 288 GTO; electronics was highly advanced for that time.

The engine was a 3 liters V8 90°, liquid-cooled, with two turbochargers, that could work at a maximum pressure of 3 bars; the four valves per cylinder were driven by double over head camshaft. The maximum po- wer was 840 hp at 7000 rpm. Hewland gearbox, 5 gears. The wheels diameter was 15 inches at the front and 17 at the rear.'
'Chassis was made of aluminum and magnesium; body material was carbon fibre composite. The overall weight was 850 kg. Often, Lancias were as competitive as Porsches in pure speed, but then suffered troubles at longer distances.

During 1984, the Martini Racing factory team was sometimes joined by Jolly Club, a private team which had a strong relationship with Lan- cia in the ‘rally’ competitions, as well as Endurance. The Milanese team entered a Lancia LC2 with number 29 in the 1984 Imola 1000 kilometres, which was driven by Mauro Baldi and Pierluigi Martini.'
