156 WTCC / ETCC / Superturismo suspension ?

Hi

Does anyone have any photos of the Alfa Romeo 156 WTCC or ETCC or Superturismo racers ?
The WTCC cars use different suspension geometry to the road going cars, and I was hoping to look into how Alfa had made their suspensions back in their heyday.
I have the "155 156 147 competition touring cars" book, but this book sadly not not show alot of the juicy stuff.

That was great stuff!
many thanks Gertie

Would have wanted to see a bit more of the front, but from looking at the rear, it does not appear that there were as many changes in the suspension as there are in the WTCC today, where the wishbones that used to be mounted horizontally are mounted vertically and other mysteries...

The WTCC dampers were made by Intrax in the Netherlands....you can still buy WTCC-spec dampers from them...( I guess you would pay WTCC-spec prices, also.....)

Here are the WTCC-ones...

Actually, no. The WTCC suspension is made by Ohlins and it does not fit a normal 156.
