Via Michael Clarke on B20GT 40 BLH. In due course 40BLH was stripped to bare metal and resprayed metallic blue.Later on set up for Classic Saloon racing with a 2.5 litre from a 4th series Aurelia with a Nardi set-up.It was considerably lightened and lowered with Porsche ventilated discs fitted at the front.Success followed in 1977 with wins at Brands,Aintree and Lydden.Following being sold to Norway it reappeared at the Bromley Pagent.At a Monaco auction a couple of years ago it sold for 100,000 Euros. Michael would like to follow this up and would be interested if anyone has further details.Also I would be interested to see any pics of the racing activity.best regards richard

I found following entry for a Monaco sale, approximately 2 years ago:
RM Monaco, on 1.05.2010
B20-1824, 2nd series, with 2.5 l engine and Nardi kit
Sold for EUR 102.917
See:
http://viva-lancia.com/auction/index.php

The description of the car with photos is still on the RM website, see:
http://www.rmauctions.com/CarDetails.cfm?SaleCode=MC10&CarID=r205&Currency=EUR

Description however does not exactly fit the story as told by Michael Clarke.

I believe we already spoke about that car when it appeared at auction in Monaco in an earlier forum posting.
Look at the entry, in 2010:
Aurelia B20 for sale.......bargain 125,000!!!!!!!

Could this be Michael Clarke's B20GT  40 BLH???

I'm glad I found this thread as it solves one of the mysteries in my Aurelia Register! EMH 276J was a record in a list given to me by the late Barry Crowe, whose B20 is now of course with Kevin McBride.  Now I have a lot more.  B20-3363 was not otherwise known to me.  Thank you!

What a terrible thing to do to fit Porsche ventilated discs to a B20. And I wonder how they were attached?
At the Goodwood Revival a few years ago there was an Aurelia Sedan entered in the St Mary's Trophy which had front disc brakes (Citroen I think) WELDED to the front suspension!! The car didnt start  the race as the driver gunned the clutch on the start and burnt the clutch out losing all drive.
Memo to driver - get 1st gear fully engaged and your foot off the clutch pedal before flooring the throttle. And then get into 2nd ASAP to avoid overloading 1st gear.
Having said that, a few years ago at the Bologna-Sanluca hillclimb (which has a slight uphill start) I witnessed a B20 spinning its rear wheels off the standing start. I asked the driver later about his clutch and he had a special driven plate fitted by Gamberini. I have since seen one of these at Gamberini and it was quite interesting.

Having gone to uprated springs and a paddle clutch and still having problems I'm interested as to what this special plate was.  Of course I soon learnt that a standard clutch and the procedure as above was the way to go, until just now I thought it was the ONLY way to go.

Another set of disc brakes on an Aurelia, also a 2nd series B20, also fitted with a 2.5 l engine. At least they are not ventilated Porsche ones!

The transformation was done in the early 60ies in Switzerland, and the car is still going well! It also passes the swiss technical inspection, which is rather thorough!

Next time I se the car on a lift, I shall try to document the mounting of the caliper.

Dunlop /Girling, I wonder what off of, perhaps Flaminia?

On the early gearboxes and clutches the factory fitted a clutch plate with a sintered lining to the cars used in racing. I have seen one of these once. It is fitted with fairly small pieces af yellow sintered metal. According to a Swedish friend of mine who has this fitted it works admirably.

The friend of mine who showed me the clutch plate is Herbert Nilsson, chairman of the Swedish Lancia club. He might be able to help you. His e-mail address is: herbert.nilsson@bredband.net
