Two More for Alfa

[Enna] There are some motor races that remain enthralling from start to finish, others that, while not particularly memorable, at least sustain interest for most of the distance, and yet others that are simply boring. The Coppa Florio, run over 1,003km. of the Lake Pergusa circuit near Enna in Sicily on May 18th, was one of the latter sort. The circuit is dull, the entry was poor in the extreme...

The circuit of Mugello

June 6th ALTHOUGH the race on the circuit of Mugello, north of Florence, had International status the entry was almost entirely National, the exception being Mike de Udy and David Piper with the former's Porsche 904. However, the entry was not the important part of the race, it was the circuit and character of the event that was significant, for it was open-road racing in the heart of Italy. At...

Alfa Romeo takes Championship Lead

AFTER THE relatively new, modern autodromes of Mugello and Dijon, the stage scenery for the fourth and fifth rounds of the World Championship for Makes was changed to two long-established, classic circuits: Monza and Spa.
