Alfa Race at Snetterton 12 May 2012
Not a bad day - the sun shone though there was a cool North wind which made it seem like it was earlier in the year.
The Peak Alfa GTV of Roger Evans led from start to finish and was only matched in lap times by Anthony George's 156. George's turbo powered car started from the back of the grid and spent the race working through the field to second place.
Also out front was the Alfa 33 of Bryan Shrubb which appeared to circulate without drama to finish third fairly closely followed by Guy Hales's 147 GTA.
Further down the field Sarah Heels and Andy Robinson had a race long tussle which, on the pit straight, appeared to have been decided in Andy's favour.
With an obvious "never say die attitude" Sarah floored it to the line and finished 3/10ths ahead - nice one Sarah!

There was a good number of Alfas in the car parks and paddock and even a white Fiat Abarth belonging to a well known photograher!?
And finally it looks as though Mr Palmer must have shares in Armco!! The poor camera couldn't decide what to focus on . . .
