In answer to an 'Ask Riccardo' question some time ago Riccardo told the following story:

When driving for Lancia did you ever get the chance to drive any of their classic rally cars such as the Stratos, 037 or S4?

I didn't drive the Stratos but Walter Rohrl took me for a drive in one. Remember me driving my wife around Jerez in the Honda? Well, I was like she was sitting alongside him!! It's another world driving on gravel with someone like him in the Black Forest going at 180kmh on a road as wide as the car with trees all around, feeling there was no grip...It was quite something.

A new DVD about Walter Röhrl by Helmut Deimel has recently been released and the filmmaker has apparently reshot this scene!
