Watch ex-F1 driver, Erik Comas absolutely whip this customer’s Lancia Stratos around on a test day like he owns the thing! A very cool video of him testing the Lancia to its limits, with commentary from himself on the fly around the car setup. According to the video owner and car owner, Erik was testing his suspension setup and making changes throughout the day.
Erik was bloody quick back in the day, but never had the machinery to compliment his raw speed in F1. He drove for Ligier and the fledgling Larrouse teams between 1991 and 1994, with a best result of 5th in his home GP of 1992. He was French F3 and International F3000 champion, as well as a two-time Super GT champion in the late 90s. A versatile driver, he also dabbled in a bit of WRC a few years later.
He is now well-known for hustling his own Lancia Stratos around some European events and has created quite a name for himself to get the most out of the quirky Italian rally minion.
