Lancia Club Finland ry



Lancia Club Finland was founded in 1990 by a few Finnish Lancia enthusiasts. The club aims to expand the knowledge of the Lancia marquee, support the members' efforts to keep their cars going and keep contact with other Lancia enthusiasts all over the world.

Nowadays the club has about 100 members. They own different Lancia models, but mainly Lancias from the 70's,´ 80's and 90's. Until the 1972 and the Beta model range Finland did not have an official importer, so earlier models are few. Anyway there exists one Aurelia B 10, one Aurelia B 20 GT, a couple of Appias and Flaminias, few Flavia Pininfarina Coupes and some Berlinas, and also some Fulvias. Still the most common older models are Beta Coupé and HPE. Thema, Dedra and Kappa are probably the most common newer models used daily by the members. There are also some privately imported Lybras and Thesises giving fresh blood to our members' Lancia-fleet. Lancias were briefly officially imported in 2007-2009, which was abrupted by the change of importer. From this era there are some Ypsilons, Deltas and Musas on Finnish roads. The new importer has no immediate plans relaunch Lancia in Finland, but they keep the door open.

Although the whole Lancia marquee is quite a rare sight in Finland, it is notable, that Delta Integrales are surprisingly common. That is because of the car's rally history made famous by Markku Alén and Juha Kankkunen. It is also worth to mention that such well known finnish rally drivers as Pauli Toivonen, Rauno Aaltonen and Simo Lampinen all drove Lancias in some time of their careers. And you shall never forget Henri Toivonen who died driving the notorious Lancia Delta S4 during the Tour de Corse in 1986. That was the incident that banned the B-Group rally cars and opened way to Delta Integrale, which made six times Rally World Champion, two times driven by the Finn, Juha Kankkunen.
