Product description

Alfa Romeo - one of the three great Italian names in motor racing that became inextricably linked with the other two - Fiat and Ferrari - by design, drivers and money.

When Enzo Ferrari joined the company as a driver, he enticed designed Vittorio Jano away from Fiat and by 1924 the Jano-designed Fiat-influenced P2 was enjoying phenomenal success, capable of over 120mph, becoming a legend in its own time. Alfa suffered a setback in 1925 with the death of ace driver Antonio Ascari, but then went on to win one of the earliest forms of World Championship in the same year.

Alfa took on the competition posed by Maserati who had an outstanding season in 1930, with Mercedes mounting a fierce challenge after 1932. Considerable success followed over the years in Grand Prix, the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio with world famous drivers at the wheel. The story continues right up to the seventies when Alfa were once more at the forefront of racing with their Gordon Murray-desinged Brabham 'ground-effect' car, which stormed to victory in the Swedish Grand Prix - only to be banned after this one outing following complaints from other teams.

A fascinating story of motor racing covering six decades, with marvellous black and white photographs, early film (including some in colour), in-car F1 of the 1970s and footage of restored models at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the 1990s.

First released 1997.
