AROC Magazine October 2013

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Giulia Sprint GT launch and this landmark Alfa Romeo is featured in our latest magazine.

There is a road test of a unique 33 Sportwagon and Project GTV sees the start of a 916 being prepared for road and track.

At the end of the summer season there are event reports for National Alfa Day, Mitcar, Southern Alfa Day and several other club gatherings.

Alfa racing is featured at Mallory Park and our regular contributors have plenty of stories to tell, plus a 3000 mile trip in a 159.

2014 will see the 50th anniversary of AROC.

There is less than a week left to get your entries in for our competition to come up with a design for a special logo to commemorate this milestone in the Club's history.

The inaugural Southern Alfa Day as been hailed a success by the organisers and visitors alike.

Organised by the AROC Surrey Section, held on Sunday 8th September at Painhill Park in Surrey, just under 150 cars were in attendance ranging from a 1900 through to an 8C Competizione; how many other 'noses' can you identify from the photograph!

AROC Magazine [month] [year]

AROC Magazine June 2013

The June edition of Alfa Romeo Driver reports in the very successful Spring Alfa Day. Among the features is one about a member who has successfully turned his hand to crime writing and in another the battle to get a diesel Alfetta running again is detailed. All the key Alfa Romeo dealers and specialists feature and as ever the Classified Ads include some wonderful cars.



Ireland Tour 2013

AROC Ireland Route Map

Remarkably, this year will see our 20th visit to Ireland and to celebrate a somewhat ambitious tour has been devised, taking a route around the whole of Ireland in just 11 days (10 nights), visiting several places that we have not previously stayed in.  This “Circuit of Ireland” will give participants the opportunity to experience just how much the landscapes and peoples of Ireland change as you travel around the country.



156 at Oulton Park

 

One of the cars specially prepared for the new CTCRC Pre 2005 Production series was this pretty 156. Colin Gibbons is a former Formula Ford competitor and it was his first race meeting for about 15 years.

"I was very pleased with the way it went. We do need to get some weight out of the car as it is some 150kg over the limit. When you think of the number of championships the 156 has won all over the world it is the car to be considered for this new series".

AROC Magazine April 2013

AROC Magazine April 2013

The April edition of Alfa Romeo Driver features in-depth the launch of the 4C, the two-seater coupé inspired by one of the most beautiful coupés of all time, the 33 Stradale.

As ever all the regular features including a look at AROC-promoted motorsport are included. All the key Alfa Romeo dealers and specialists feature and as ever the Classified Ads include some wonderful cars.
