    Just seen this on the net.

    Stratos caught fire while refueling two weeks ago. Steve Perez recovering in hospital.

    Look on Instagram for more pics. Search lancia_stratos

    Knew that they'd suffered a fire but didn't know Steve Perez was injured. Glad to hear he's on the road to recovery, hope it's a full one!

    Re: Steve Perez refueling fire

    The basic story is that during refuelling there was a splash or a spillage of fuel that ignited on the hot exhaust. The Co driver managed escape where Steve bore the brunt of the ensuing fireball.
    The car damage is largely cosmetic and Steve was the main concern.
    As we can see from his post on FB the other night and the Lancia_Stratos post on Instagram he is now on the road to recovery which is excellent news for all concerned.

    We all know Steve Perez and appreciate him as well
    I had the pleasure to meet him in last Costa Brava rally...
    All thoughts and best wishes for his recovery
    Please any fellows and friends take care and be safe especially during rally...Old and classic cars are great but potentially more dangerous than more recent ones!

    Fire it’s my main concern each time I refuel the car during race with hot engine and exhaust ...also I do it with rear hood closed to avoid splash or spillage on it!

    Remember the original has a hot exhaust running near the right hand tank.
