Similar rumour about Maserati providing Indy engines: Indy Car: Maserati entrerą dal 2011 come motorista?

Re: Alfa to Supply Indy Engines

But the supply makes sense with an intention to start selling road cars in the USA - whereas Maserati are already there

Re: Alfa to Supply Indy Engines

Well, it'll be a Ferrari derived engine anyway (perhaps similar to the one used in A1GP?).

Re: Alfa to Supply Indy Engines

FPT are developing a Common Alfa/Ferrari/Lancia V6

All just speculations, but good news any how

Re: Alfa to Supply Indy Engines

Indycar to become interesting?

Italiaspeed are reporting that Alfa Romeo are one of 5 manufacturers in talks with Indycar about supplying an engine for the series when Hondas contract runs out at the end of next year.

It makes sense to promote the brand for its American re-launch.

As for Turbo petrol engines...I have yet to drive a Diesel I didn't dislike....there are serious problems here in Australia...Several of the states ban P plate drivers from driving turbo petrol cars so if I had a turbo petrol Alfa Romeo, my daughter who is 18 at the moment would not be able to drive it under any circumstances for the next several years...a 1.4 Turbo Mito is equivalent to aa 6 litre V8 Commodore as far as the Government is concerned and not for P-platers...

In reality it is developed by both sets of engineers: they are really one team, sitting under Ferrari, just some of them focus on the Maserati versions and others on the Ferrari versions.

Makes Sense

Slightly off track, I do beleive that no one under 25 should drive anything bigger than 100Hp

What about a Westfield?

Power to weight would be a better restriction, like they have in Italy.
