Alfa Racing World
Alfa Romeo has had a strong affiliation with motorsport almost since the day it was founded, and over the years has had much success in becoming one of the key players in racing. The company was established in 1910 and was involved in car racing by just 1911, with the first racing car built in 1913. Alfa’s first success came later that year with a second place finish from Nino Franchini.
Giuseppe Campari claimed victory in the 1920 race at Mugello, and repeated the feat in 1921, setting the standard for drivers to come. In the years following this the company entered into Grand Prix racing, where there was not just compatriots like Ferrari to beat – there was more strong competition in the form of the Germans. Following on from this, Alfa started sports car racing in the 1930s, with the most notable wins coming in the Mille Miglia and Le Mans 24 Hours.
Alfa Romeo’s affiliation with the world of motorsport has gathered many loyal followers for the company which has been shown through sales of their road cars. If you’re interested in purchasing a new Alfa Romeo though where better to start than with Alfa Romeo’s own website www.alfaromeo.co.uk.
