This stunning shot of the Lancia Stratos HF shows Sandro Munari in the 46ème Rallye Automobile de Monte-Carlo circa 1978.
Sadly, Munari didn’t make it to the end of the course as the Lancia’s engine let itself go shortly after this photograph was taken, Munari did manage to win in 1975, 1976 and 1977 however and he was on track to win the ’78 race, before the inside parts of the engine exploded through the outside parts of the engine.
