Alfa Romeo GT 3.2l V6

Fiat Group Automobiles South Africa, importer of Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Fiat Professional and Abarth vehicles locally will campaign an Alfa Romeo GT 3.2l V6 “Squadra Corse” racing car in the Africa Endurance Series in 2015.
The resumption of local racing with the head-office supported Alfa Romeo Motorsport is being hailed by local “Alfisti” as the premium brand has an illustrious history in South African motorsport.

The return to the track is certain to evoke memories of the monumental on-track battles that were fought in the seventies and eighties with names like Arnold Chatz, Abel D’Oliviera and Nicola Bianca, to name a few.
FGA’s previous foray into motorsport locally dates back to the Alfa Romeo 147’s that were campaigned by the company in 2007 and 2008 and the brand’s heritage has been maintained right up until today by enthusiastic classic car racers.

With the support of ADF Motorsport, the FGA technical team has built the race car in record-breaking time to ensure it is fully race-ready for its debut appearance at the first event in Port Shepstone on the 11th April.
