Competition Touring Cars by Peter Collins
F1 stars such as Nannini, Alboreto, Fisichella, Larini and even Felipe Massa have all at some point found themselves in a four-door Alfa in the heat of a doorhandle-to-doorhandle touring car battle.
The Alfa Romeo 155 and 156 are statistically among the company’s most successful racing cars. Countless race wins, championships and team titles mean that throughout the 1990s the cars cemented a reputation as the car to beat and the natural heir to the legendary GTA. Whilst this isn’t a book for the casual browser, fans of the touring car world will enjoy seeing how the early days of the production 155 led all the way to the ultimate evolution of the overblown technology of the DTM. This book isn’t overloaded with stats and concentrates on giving an overview of a golden time for touring car racing and one of its biggest supporters. DC
