I was there, Alfa red 2011 Giulietta Veloce parked round the banking. Apparently there was an alfa and fiat section that I didn't find although I suspect the fiat and alfa section was on what looked like a regular carpark back from the test hill behind a fence?!

That's where they were last year. There were not many Giuliettas then either. Very low numbers, I seem to remember being parked next to the only one on the row of 25 or so cars.

alfa section was opposite hill climb area in what was basically a car park.lots of alfas to look at shame you did not find it.always next year.must be a funny handshake to get in there as seemed a bit chaotic as regards to keeping all the alfas in one place.

I was there with the other Alfas, it's sort of first come first served,I got there about 8 am and there were loads of parking spaces, when it gets full they tell you to park elsewhere, good day, felt sorry for the guy that crashed his Lamborghini at the Mercedes world track

Apparently the car had been upgraded to 1000 BHP, and I also saw a rumour mentioned elsewhere that the cars owner had not given his permission to be on the track. But that's only a rumour.

They split off the first batch of Alfas into that car park (The GTVs were further split off last year into their own sub-section) and the others are left to mill around on the banking as they arrive when the car park gets full. If you turn up early, you park in that car park.

The Abarths loiter down there as well along with the 4Cs that show up. There was also a GTA section along the back row, though it wasn't compulsory to create one I think.

Funny enough, didn't look like he was going that fast, just lost the back and hit the barrier, maybe the rest rear suspension broke as well as the rear wheel was at an angle
