Miki Biasion to star at Race Retro
Rally legend Miki Biasion will be celebrating 30 years since winning his first World Rally Championship title in 1988.
Rally legend Miki Biasion will be climbing back behind the wheel at this year’s Race Retro, where he’ll be celebrating 30 years since winning his first World Rally Championship title in 1988.
Rally fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with the star driver – who was best known for his career with Lancia – when he appears in action on the Live Rally Stage at the Stoneleigh Park event on 23-25 February.
Biasion began competing in 1979, in an Opel Kadett GT/E. He then won both the Italian and European Rally Championships in 1983, driving a Lancia 037, and went on to play a key role for the works Lancia World Rally Championship team. He dominated early Group A rallying, taking the world championship in 1988 and ’89.
His peak saw him win nearly three-quarters of all entered events. He was also only the second driver to successfully defend his title (after Juha Kankkunen) and the third to win two titles (after Kankkunen and Walter Röhrl). He became the highest-paid driver of his day when he moved to Ford in 1992, and while he couldn’t match his Lancia successes, he did win the World Truck Championship in 1998 and 1999 driving an Iveco.
Race Retro show director Lee Masters said: ‘We are thrilled to have Miki Biasion with us for this year’s show, especially on our Live Rally Stage. It’s an amazing opportunity for fans to see one of the greats in action once again.’
Biasion will also appear on the Motor Sport Live Stage to talk about his career highlights, along with Hall of Fame inductee Brian Redman and other special racing and rally guests. Further show-stopping displays of iconic cars will include a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the ground-effects era.
