24 Hour Nurburgring JTD Victory

I have just read on Italiaspeed.com (look for the date 16.05.2005) that 2 Alfa's were entered into the 24 hour race.
1 was a 147 2.4 JTD 20V (strange ) and another was a GT 1.9 JTD 16V.
The 147 came 13th out of 213 (which included super cars) and the GT came..... well it didn't finish put it that way - it crashed sadly.

The 147 had a 20v JTD in it though, which seems a little strange as Alfa do not do one???? I thought at first "how does it fit?", but given the fact that the 156's and 147's are almost identical chassis, I suppose thats my answer.

Anyway, have a butchers at the story and see what you think.
Oh and whilst your there have a look at the tech specs - they are damn impressive!

Re: 24 Hour Nurburgring JTD Victory

I did post a thread about the 24h Nurburgring a few hours after the victory (in the general disc forum)...I did see some of the race on the german TV DSF...in the last few hours it was interesting to see the 147 chasing up the Subaru Impreza STi WRX (not in its class) and been able to actually beat it...to finish 13th overall after 600-800hp cars...and being able to beat many of these as well.

The 147JTD was 260hp and the GT was 220hp

In my thread there is also a picture of the winner.

p.s: someone did post another thread about another 24h race...over there the 147 1.6TS won in its class...again A3,Civics, Golf5, Mazda and whatever else.

It seems that the 147 is the real world super car
