It's the closest thing to a race car you'll ever drive: it's the Dallara Stradale, the last chronologically of a series of exceptional cars manufactured from 1972, the year in which Giampaolo Dallara founded Dallara competitive cars after having worked at Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and De Tomaso.
The successes in Formula 3, first in Italy then all over the world, the affirmation in America with the IndyCar, the consultancies for important manufacturers and the constant attention to the most innovative technology, have transformed Dallara into one of the most important companies in terms of the design, production and development of competitive cars.
Every weekend, about 300 Dallara cars race on circuits all around the world and in various formulas: the company is present in all Formula 3 championships, it is the sole supplier of cars to IndyCar, Indy Lights, GP2, GP3, Formula 3.5 V8, Super Formula and Renault Sport Trophy championships, it makes cars for training championships such as the Formulino, for the Formula E, WEC, ELMS and IMSA.
Since 2007, Engineer Giampaolo Dallara has been supported by Engineer Andrea Pontremoli who, after having left the post of President and CEO of IBM Italy, took on the post of CEO of Dallara with the aim of developing innovating strategies for the development of the Parma-based enterprise.
A company for which the research of excellence has become a continuous competition against itself.
