Rounds 8 & 9: An Italian double header at Imola & Mugello

Before we tackle the finale, there were two other European rounds of the championship, both in Italy.  The Imola 1,000 Kilometers and the Mugello 1,000 Kilometers.  The races in Italy had smaller fields.  Lancia was back.  They conquered Imola with the #4 LC2 of Teo Fabi and Hans Heyer, winning.

At Mugello, Joest Racing and Porsche won, with the Marlboro liveried #8 Porsche 956 of Bob Wollek and Stefan Johansson taking the honors.

Coming up, soon, will be the curtain closer on the 1983 season, from Kyalami in South Africa.  It was a wild race, and trust me, you will WANT to stay tuned to read about that one.
