Alfas In The Van!

ALFAS IN THE VAN!--Two shots taken in close succession, of the field starting in the G.P. de l'Europe.

1000 KMs of Buenos Aires

Ferrari Wins The Mille Miglia

At the end of April, Italy ran her famous 1,000-mile Brescia-Breseini sports and touring car race under dreadful weather conditions. There was a record field of 383 and of them all, Giannini Marzotto's Ferrari, with its V12 engine enlarged to 2,340 c.c., and a Supperleggera coupé body, gained a convincing victory at 76.57 m.p.h. Ferrari themselves had put in Ascari and Villoresi in the new 3-...

The 1980 Season

The pursuit of happiness

Patrick Depallier raced not to get rich nor win championships but because he loved it. Mark Hughes remembers a man of simple needs and mighty talent Ken Tyrrell is unequivocal on the subject of Patrick Depallier: "He loved being a racing driver more than any other driver I've ever known. He was a boy who was living his dream and it showed every time he was in the car." It is telling that Tyrrell...

Alfa Romeo Milano

The name of Alfa Romeo has always been held in great respect in the sporting world and it is reckoned that when Alfa Romeo go racing they make a proper job of it.

Return of a Classic?

To celebrate the official return of the Spider to these shores, Alfa Romeo invited MOTOR SPORT to Scotland to drive their new baby. So what, you may say, Alfa Romeo Spiders are hardly new and it is not that unusual to see them about. This new model, though, sees the old model successfully shaped to take the car into the last decade of the millenium without losing any of its former flair, and in...
