Club News

Regulalry updated news of what's happening in the Alfa Romeo Owners Club.

New for 2018, we are running a ‘Show & Shine’ competition in addition to our traditional Concours. This is a (slightly!) less formal competition to encourage Alfas that may not fit in the Concours, modified or non-original for example. Judging will be based on the current condition of the car, the emphasis on its general cleanliness and presentation. Just a reminder that the Concours and the Show & Shine are open to AROC members only.

AROC Magazine February 2018

Our February 2018 magazine is full and includes an outstanding range of articles from Club members. Jon Dooley writes of Geoff Gordon’s racing Alfasud Sprint Veloce, Richard Murtha of motorsport late last year and preparing for this year, and Clive Baker of the Carrera Panamericana, Mexico’s answer to the Mille Miglia in the 1950s. Bernard Lien Lambert belongs to AROC USA as well as AROC UK and tells his tale of buying a Duetto and how the Club does things over there – their Christmas party sounds fun!
