Attilio Bettega (19 February 1953 – 2 May 1985) was an Italian rally driver.
Bettega was born in Molveno, province of Trento. In 1982, he joined the Lancia squad driving the Lancia 037 after some years with Fiat. In his Lancia years he gained four podium finishes in rallies counting towards the World Rally Championship. His last podium was also his best one, driving his Lancia to second place at the 1984 Rallye Sanremo. In the 1985 season, he entered the Safari Rally and the Tour de Corse. In Corsica, on the fourth stage of the rally - Zerubia, Bettega lost control over his Lancia and crashed into a tree which simply ruptured into the driver's seat and killed him instantly. His co-driver Maurizio Perissinot survived the crash uninjured.
Bettega's son, Alessandro Bettega has followed his father's footsteps and is also a rally driver.
