Re: Wtcc 2008

Fiat need to do something about this, motorsport is the best form of promotion for any car manufacturer, they've got the motorsport know-how, why not spend a little and use that know-how!!!

Re: Wtcc 2008

Fully agree, Touring car racing is a key part of Alfa Romeo's heritage. IMO Alfa should have taken one of the following decisions: 1) support James Thompson and N-Tech with the 156 for one more year until the 149 arrives, the 156 with its slippery shape was still competitive on the fast circuits 2) Entered the 159 which imo has a great starting point with such a stiff chassis

Re: Wtcc 2008

well looks like N.technology won't be there at the first race due to lack of testing. Maybe they should have stuck with the trusty 156! lol

Ladas but no Alfa's shame! Touring cars need Alfa Romeo to be really interesting!

Re: Wtcc 2008

Even the privatly run pair of 156's in the BTCC are now not turning up to the season opening at Brands which is one reason why I am going.

Congrats to SEAT on claiming the manufacturers championship and the drivers championship, which will be decided in Macau.
