Guido Pardini in the Emiliani 380 leading a group of cars during the 1980 Italian F3 Championship.


A one-off chassis built for the Italian F3 Championship and run by the Ferdinando Ravarotto team it served its purpose and won in 1980 despite stiff opposition from Enzo Coloni and Michele Alboreto.


Based on the 1978 Wolf Dallara and modified by Giampaolo Dallara who designed the original. A sleeker body was fitted and sidepods were added. A Toyota engine was fitted and it went well enough to finish 6th in the Italian Championship.


The Emiliani was further modified for 1980 with a lower cockpit and a nose reminiscent of the March 803. An intensive development was carried out based around different tyre manufacturers and during the season ran on Pirelli, Goodyear and M&H. All the hard work paid off and Pardini took the title that year.
