RS9: Lancia fights back!

There was a long pause between the first and second wins of a Lancia Fulvia in a regularity stage of the 26th Monte Carlo Historic Rally. And so we had to wait until Monday morning, between Valdrôme (Drôme) and La Piarre (Hautes-Alpes), to see another pretty Italian coupé, in 1.6 HF version, succeed the one that opened the ball in SR1.

This time, over a distance of just 11.9 km, up and down the Col de Carabes (1261 m) in sunshine that gradually cleared away the morning fog, it was a French team that achieved the average time closest to the one suggested by the organisers: Olivier and Côme Martin, in a 1969 Lancia Fulvia, did slightly better than the four teams tied for 2nd place.

The field of four cars that received 50 penalty points each (compared with 30 for the winning Lancia) included two Porsches, the 911 with number 9 and the 924 with number 118, but above all a superb Peugeot 504 V6 Coupé (photo), that of François and Benoît Méon (number 83), which dates back to 1975, and an equally superb Lancia Beta Monte-Carlo entered by Gabriel Valentin and Laurent Bertaut, with number 86 on its doors.
