Gian Paolo Dallara left the Milan Polytechnic in 1959 with an aeronautical engineering degree and went to work for Ferrari, during the next few years he also worked at Maserati and Lamborghini, at the latter he was responsible for the Miura. By the end of the sixties Dallara was working for De Tomaso on their short lived F1 and F2 projects and he also worked on the ISO-Marlboro F1 car run by Frank Williams. In 1975 Dallara decided it was time he set up his own company in his home town of Varano Melegari and he began by producing a sportscar, the X1-9, he then moved into competition work by developing racing versions of the Lancia Stratos and Beta Monte Carlo. The first Dallara F3 car was actually the Wolf car built for Walter Wolf racing in 1978 which as the renamed Emiliani won the 1980 Italian F3 Championship. The first true Dallara was produced in 1981 and within a dozen years Dallara had seen of all-comers including Ralt and Reynard. Their dominance has continued since then and despite the occasional competition from companies like TOM’s and Martini they seem immovable. In the late 1980’s Dallara returned to F1 when they built cars for Scuderia Italia, despite often impressing the cars lacked sufficient financial backing to ever be really successful. In 1999 Dallara were commissioned by Honda to build a F1 car for a projected return to F1 but in the end Honda decided to remain as engine suppliers only. Dallara has also continued to work with sportscars and hand a hand in the Le Mans Toyota GT-One and the 24 Hour winning Audi R8. Currently in addition to F3 cars Dallara are building cars for IRL and Infiniti Pro racing in the US and Formula Nissan in Europe.

Offered for sale with Klasiko is this Dallara F3-01. A proven race winning car, having finished runner up in the 2017 Monoposto championship, followed by winning the 2019 Monoposto championship. This particular example is offered for sale after a change of direction, having been recently purchased from its previous owner, who owned the car for 6 years. In this previous ownership, the car was subject to a complete bare tub rebuild with Hurley Race Engineering, including all electrics and sensors. 

This Dallara is powered by the correct Toyota 3SGE engine, mated to a 5-speed H pattern Hewland gearbox. It benefits from a  Racetechnology RTLIVE datalogging system with custom carbon steering wheel and configurable display. This particular data logger has brake and throttle sensors, as well as live car-to-pit telemetry, so data can be streamed live to a computer. Belts and extinguisher are in date, along with the bodywork being genuine carbon fibre Dallara parts. 

Included with the vehicle is a small spares package comprising various replacement bodywork, spare wheels and a large collection of ratios. This proven, championship winning car provides a great opportunity to challenge for the Monoposto F3B Championship, and perhaps challenge for overall race victories.
