El mítico Lancia 037 de Carlo Capone volverá como Legend

In 1984, the Italian Carlo Capone along with the American Sergio Cresto took part of the 32nd edition of the Rally Costa Brava, scoring for the European Championship. In that year, the Italian team of Michele Cinotto and Emilio Radaelli were proclaimed winners of the Catalan rally with his Audi Quattro.
