The traditional Italian race this time visited seven tracks, and had 14 special stages. Lancia had brought three cars in the livery of their new sponsor Martini; two of them were the normal 1.4 Turbo cars, the other was was a 2-litre compressor car which was driven by Alboreto, Bettega and Bernacchini.
At first, there was another Lancia in the lead - the 24-valve Stratos of Tabaton, but the Martini cars were close behind. The first circuit racewas won by Moretti in his Porsche 935, but he fell back at the special stages in retired in the end.

Lancia had a 1-2-3 lead now, but it was not to be: Tabaton retired with head gasket failure.
