Hi everyone.

I am new to the club, from Denmark and having been a huge fan of the Lancia Stratos since I was 14-15 years old. Now in my mid fifties I am getting closer to have the funds to purchase a Stratos. I have set my sights on the Lister Bell, but since I have never driven one (only sat in a Hawk once) I would very much like to have a test drive in a LHD Lister Bell. I will of course pay all expenses involved and will drive the car extremely carefully.

Is there anybody out there that are willing to let me try their car as Lister Bell don`t have a "Factory demonstrator" available yet ?

Thanks in advance and best regards

Hello and welcome to the club,

I would think you will be very luck to find anyone who will let you drive their car, however you may well have the chance to be driven in a car, I'm not sure if we have any LHD LB in the UK at the moment as I have sold mine, and maybe Craig can let us know if there are any in Denmark currently? They are spreading over the world quite fast I gather.

Lots of reading for you in the forum whilst you wait for your car following your order.
Have you decided on what type you will have? GP4 or Stradale?

Regards
Ian

Hi Ian and thanks for responding to my post !

Well, a ride in the passenger seat would also be okay as I have only been sitting in one and never driven it (visited HAWK cars years ago, but Gerry wouldn`t
let me drive the car coz it had been raining all day and the car was to go to a car show in Belgium the next day !).

I would prefer a GP4, definately !

Thanks again.

So are you ever in the UK?

Hi

I'm a bit far from Denmark! But if you're coming this side of Europe in a next trip
I will be pleased to invite you for a drive test with my car... It's not a LTR but one Corse S rebuilt with nice parts from Listerbell ( bodywork rear arches wheels brakes ...)
And you could compare in driving a real rally Delta Integrale!

Correct - that would be better than perfect!

Why does the Stratos get a carpet but the 'grale has to put up with concrete?

No reason at all...only have one carpet after moving in a new garage!
Both cars are fully deserving one and now they have one carpet each...No jealousy!! LOL

Try another garage day Steve? I think there were a few biccies left after the last one?

That`s a very generous offer - where (approxemately) are you situated (what airport is the nearest to you) ?

Thanks

Thanks guy`s, I am stunned !

I will try to find out where it would be the easiest place to go (i.e. plane/car etc.) and I also guess it would make sense to wait until spring arrives ;-)

Regards

Bo
