Video Tribute: Attilio Bettega

Submitted by on April 5, 2011

Enjoy this video dedicated to the memory of Attilio Bettega and the glorious machines he drove.

The Italian remains one of the most memorable and inspiring drivers of the golden days of rallying. Attilio was a key player in the evolution in top-level rallying which saw him drive classic machines like the Fiat 131 and then progress to the flame spitting Group B Lancia 037 .

Sadly, he would become a victim of the fast development in rallying, crashing fatally into a tree on the fourth stage of the Tour de Corse in 1985.
