Probably at the Paris-Dakar event, eh.
An inspiration for many a year.
I wonder what the young man thinks of these spectacular shenanigans.
snippet from the veb:
The Lancia Rally (Tipo 151, also known as the Lancia Rally 037, Lancia 037 or Lancia-Abarth #037 from its Abarth project code SE037) was a mid-engine sports car and rally car built by Lancia in the early 1980s to compete in the FIA Group B World Rally Championship. … It was the last rear-wheel drive car to win the WRC.
Engine: Lampredi 2.0–2.1-litre I4 supercharged, rear, mid-mounted
Constructors’ Championships: 1
Suspension (rear): Independent wheels with two wishbones, coil springs, dual shock absorbers and no bars
What a difference 55 years makes juxtaposition of Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, 1965 and Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, 2020. Alfa Romeo have revealed a new track-focused version of the new generation Giulia based on the Quadrifoglio and fitted with a more powerful version of the Alfa Romeo 2.9 litre V6 Bi-Turbo engine, now with 540hp. Use of lightweight materials gives a reduction of 100kg compared to the Quadrifoglio. The new Giulia will be available as a limited edition in two versions (500 of each), the GTA and GTAm which features racing seats, roll-bar and six-point seat belts.
The ‘A’ in GTA stands for “Alleggerita,” Italian for lightweight. The original GTA featured a 1.6 litre TOHC 4 cylinder engine that produced 113hp for the stradale (road) version and 170hp for the race car.
I am thrilled to see one of my most lusted after monikers reborn by one one my favorite companies… the beautiful and mighty GTAm !!! Oh, yes, Virginia, I am smiling BIGLY!
Even though I can no longer drive, not that I could afford either of them, it is wonderful to know that the GTAm is still out there vanquishing lesser conveyeances left and right.
Alfa Romeo da tutto il mondo, baby!

Watch a Kamaz Dakar truck and Volkswagen Polo R WRC battle it out on Rally Finland’s iconic Ouninpohja stage.
On one side of the ring there’s the 318-horsepower Volkswagen Polo R WRC: a car that has won WRC RAlly Finland three times. Then on the other side, more unusually, the there’s the iconic Kamaz 4326 truck that is the undisputed King of the Dakar, with close to 1000-horsepower…and still capable of hitting the jumps!

I think that Markko Märtin’s jump from Ouninpohja 2003, Yellow House jump, is the longest measured one from modern days. 57 metres at 173 km/h if I recall right. That Guy Wilks’ flight is from SS Leustu, jump best known for Novikov’s stunt in 2009. Last year they had metre marks up to 55 metres there and they roughly landed at 45-50 metres. Wilks’ jumps must’ve been around 55 metres at least. I think we would have some nice lengths from SS Himos “Nikara’s jump” as well. Only Ouninpohja’s jump is ran to direction measured here this year.
From the 1970s this jump by Juhani Kynsilehto in 1975 is rather big one. Legend says it landed around 70 metres, but that’s not accurate of course. Co-driver was, by the way, one Martin Holmes.
Sweet! Finland is most definitely Rally Central… it’s in their blood!
