28.10.2012 ItaliaspeedPhotoStream: LANCIA CLUB JAPAN - "LANCIA LUNCH 2012" @ OISO PRINCE HOTEL

The Lancia Club Japan has just celebrated its 20th anniversary in real style, holding its annual Lancia Lunch 2012, attended by several special guests who are a part of Lancia's rich history, at the Oiso Prince Hotel. "We invited the greats heros, Sandro Munari, Simo Lampinen, Gian Beppe Panicco and Thomas Popper," says Akira Harada from the Club. "About 200 Lancias and other cars arrived [at] the meeting. The meeting started with a parade of three competition Stratos and 12 'Stradale' Stratos." Those three former rally machines were a lauded Chardonnet car that won the Tour de France and Tour de Corse in 1975, Roberto Pietropoli's former 1980 Rally Valli Ossolane winning machine and a Rothmans-liveried, ex-Bagration example that was victories in the 1980 Spain Rally Championship. "There was a talk show fronted by famous Japanese journalist Kenichi Tanabe which [focused on] Sandro, Simo and Gian Beppe," says Akira, adding "Sandro drove demonstrations [in] three Stratos and Simo drove [a] Fulvia and a Saab 96. The show [was] the [main] performance at the meeting."
