Anyone else here get an invite about a "Track Experience" test drive at Silverstone today and tomorrow.
I'm very excited! Picked the Giulia QV of course, interested to see how much better it is over my Veloce!
Last weekend saw the end of season finale for the Historic Sports Car Club Championships. A fine and sunny weekend which was warm for the time of year, Sunday was a little foggy to start but did not spoil the on track action. A wide selection of machinery from single seaters, sports cars...
When to Silverstone yesterday. Got pit and paddock entry at the start and end of the day.
Here's sonething funny... I was waiting for Schuey outside his motorhome and he jumped into a Y-reg 156 JTD to be taken away. Surely that's not his 'company' car!!! :(
Got some great pics if anyone's...
I've been driving around for a few days without the front splitter on at all. It's been donated to someone who is gonna make a mould so I can replace it when I smash it, or do variations on it and different designs.
Anyway, at speed on the motorway, I've noticed the car isn't affected by cross...
What i was wondering if i could replace my 1996 1.8 8v sportsedition computer with the computer of a Silverstone 1,8 8v (special edition)? I should gain 9hp..or are there more mods in the silverstone than at a 1.8 sports?155
I need to sell my 155 asap.. I'm open to offers. Details below:
1994 155 Silverstone
1.8 8v @ ~143k/miles - good engine & box
Usual silverstone spec: Momo 1/2 leather, electric sunroof & F windows. Momo leather steering wheel & gear knob.
Body coloured bumpers & Silverstone spoiler...
The Alfa championship will be at Silverstone on Saturday 10/5
There will be 2 Alfa only races, a grid for the production spec 33's and Sud's, and a grid for the modified cars.
If you like all types of Alfa's then you won't be disappointed at seeing a swarm of 33's scrapping away, plus anything...
Does anyone know of any difference between a genuine alfa splitter and the ones sold on alfaowner?,material,fit etc.
Want to convert to a quickshift,has anybody fitted one or made one?
Any comments most welcome.
Just wondering, why is the 155 Silverstone based on the 1.8 engine when the BTCC car was 2.0 ? i know BMW tried to claim there car was a 318 when clearly it was a 320. Why the 1.8 though, the alfa would have been a much quicker car in 2.0 guise surely ?
OK....so it's not really a mod on my car, but the original was smashed. Painted it Satin Black for easyness (hard to colour match alfa pink/orange/red).
It's preety low to the deck and my car isn't lowered. Also in the extended postion (which it is), you actually get MORE ground clearance. No...
good news my 8 year old 155 flew through its MOT but it needs new discs for next year anyone know a cheap place to get some standard discs both front and rear. Im also on the look out for a silverstone spoiler but dont really want to spend £140 on a new one so is anyone selling one by any chance?
My oil pressure has slowly got lower & lower over the few years I've owned the car, now when hot (oil @ ~70 water @ ~80-90) oil pressure at idle is 0 bar rising to 2-2.5 bar @ 3000 rpm.
Is there any easy way to check if the sensor is faulty or is it more likely something more serious. Oil...
