    Anyone know their History ?

    Can anyone help with a bit of history for the press ???
    Help him maybe help the club ??

    Cheers Mel

    Good evening

    I’m trying to finalise a report on the French Rallye d’Automne VHC 2017 for Classic Cars magazine. The report will contain a short feature on the Lancia Stratos HF owned and driven in that rally by Patrick Hautot. I believe this to be the car that was driven by Fabrizio Tabaton in the 1980 Sanremo Rally. However Patrick Hautot tells me that he knows nothing of the competition history of his car prior to him acquiring it. Thus it occurred to me that there may be those within your club who would know and, if so, they may also know more about this car’s competition history. If anyone can help me, I’d be most grateful to hear from them as soon as possible as I’m facing a tight copy deadline for this report.

    With my thanks in anticipation.

    Regards

    Michael Davis

    As said with Tim requested through Lancia Motor Club this Stratos with Grifone team livery has been entried in Tour Auto this year and in a recent rally in France...this car is registered as one 1974 Stratos...Not sure then it's the same car used by Fabrizio Tabaton in San Remo 1980!

    As Phil says the registration number and the vin plate of this car must be compared with Tabaton car which could be 829ARO*001979* but to be confirmed!

    What purchaser of a group 4 stratos does so without researching it's competition history? Or maybe it doesn't have a history as such if it's only recently been made?

    Was thinking this son !....... one would expect a competition car particularly, to have a substantial history file !...... I would certainly want to know the exact history.... especially an ex crashaton..... sorry Tabaton car !

    After some research I'm pretty sure this car is not the Tabaton one but more probably that one sold in auction few years ago in Germany
    I remember now to have seen it in Retromobile Paris last year with a recent french Plate!!

    I was contacted by Michael Davis as SEC Press Officer.... Tabaton is quoted in Stratos Mythe and Realite, as driving a Grifone Stratos to a number of Podiums in 1979 (finishing 2nd in San Marino Rally), 1980 and 1981. The crashed car does not look like a Grifone to my apprentice eyes. Was that crash in 1980??? I have forwarded on this information, and the difficulty of tracing cars to the the journalist who cannot get any more data on the car in question. He did ask who may have the data base of Stratos history and I mentioned Thomas Popper... If any of you have any information please PM me.
