Alfa Romeo at the Targa Florio

Motor Sport magazine website shows a film of the '72 Targa Florio, narrated by Vic Elford, who led early on in an Alfa Romeo T33.

Well worth a watch if you like insane motor races, beautiful Alfas, or both.

Nice one!

From wikipedia

"Helmut Marko set the lap record in 1972 in an Alfa Romeo 33TT3 at 33 min 41 s at an average of 128.253 km/h (79.693 mph) during an epic charge where he made up 2 minutes on Arturo Merzario and his Ferrari 312PB."

This is the current manager of the young drivers programme at Red Bull.

He's a bit taller than Arturo Merzario, isn't he? Interesting little video.
