Re: Alfa 156's in 2008 BTCC?
But sure they haven't had a works team out since the mid 90s, so they obviously aren't that concerned......they should be, since Vauxhall started their Ferrari-type form in the BTCC there sales have shot up quite a bit too!! 3 out of the top 10 selling cars in the UK were Vauxhalls in 2007....coincidence, it certainly helped the vectra overtake the mondeo in regards to sales IMO......Maybe Fiat should consider it, it's about £2,000,000 to run a works team of 2 cars for a season, a very small amount to a car manufacturer these days!! or do what Honda do and support an indy team, a fraction of the cost but similar promotional oportunities! The 159 would be a perfect base car, considering the Vectra won last year against smaller hatchbacks!!
No car at the mo
Sold to go travelling......
