Biella the Italian capital of wool, where Claudio Maglioli developed the car of Bertone and Fiorio, is preparing to give homage to the Lancia Stratos for the 40th anniversary of the World Rally Championship Title 1976.
This is the story of excellence, of the ones that made the Lancia Stratos, a story initiated from Biella in the 70s and which through the victories, the drivers, the collectors et the enthusiasts is re-born today thanks to the encounter with another brand of excellence: Zenith Watches.
The wool industry in the city of Biella has a tradition that is rooted in a history of at least two hundred years. The development of the wool industry has occurred in respect of the environmental background: Biella is a green city, full of rivers, with the mountain peaks visible on the horizon; no one gets the feeling of being in a big industrial center. A few kilometers from Biella, at an altitude of about 1200 meters, is located the sanctuary of Oropa, whose origin dates back to the fourth century, with its black wooden Madonna, found among the ruins of Jerusalem.
Just crowned car champion for the ninth time in his career, this time in Italy, Erik COMAS took the opportunity of the Automobile Club Italia prize ceremony hold in Taormina (Sicily), to confirm his participation in the FIA European historic rallies 2016.
