Re: More Alfas in the BTCC !!

Was just going to comment on this myself! so is it a factory team that can try and win the manufacturers crown?

It doesn't appear to be... just customers who can afford to buy factory built cars !!

No disrespect to the drivers but you'd want a stronger line up if you were a factory team wouldn't you ??

About time they had some serious presence. Oh for the glory days of seeing the 155 win at Brands!

Re: More Alfas in the BTCC !!

Richard Marsh is a very good driver, but Dave Pinkney maybe hasn't had the opportunity to shine lately, he used to be fantastic in the Production Saloons years ago in a Sapphire Cosworth, etc...this could be a good chance to show again how good he is...

Re: More Alfas in the BTCC !!

Great! I have a reason to watch the BTCC again!



Does Alfa have any representation in the WTCC this season?

Re: More Alfas in the BTCC !!

Eoin Murray is back as well, he showed some promise last year, Have to be honest and admit I haven't watched it much in recent years, but will definitely give it another go this year.

There's two semi-works? (maybe someone can confirm) Alfas in the WTCC, James Thompson is driving for them, first round was a bit of a disaster for them

From the next round at Zandvoort there will be a third 156 racing run by a Belgium team and the driver will be Miguel Freitas

Great to see them back. A full on factory backed effort would be good

Eoin Murray had a crash in the qualifying session after a front suspension and because of budget problems he couldn't get it fixed before the race. still managed to qualify it in 12th though (I think)
