Virtual Meeting - ‘Battle of the Alfas’
10 December 2020

Screen shots thanks to Jason Hood

Our December meeting is normally a Speaker Night, but we thought it would be good this year to have something more interactive on Zoom, so we had “The Battle of the Alfas”.  Over 90 Alfas - post war road cars not racing cars - were categorised into groups of 5 or 6 and the meeting participants voted on their favourites.  16 categories were whittle down to a round of 16, quarter finals, semi finals until we had a winner from the final, all driven from a rather swish on-screen system with images of the cars concerned.
More detail of the night will be in the January 2021 Alfisti newsletter, suffice to say there were some hugely tricky decisions to be made!   In the end the semi finalists were the Alfa GT 3.2 V6, the 750D Giulietta Spider, the 939 Spider and the T33 Stradale.   There was also lots of love for the 156, Alfasud Sprint, 8C Competizione, and Bertone Coupe,  but some of it was simply down to the luck of the draw.  The winner?  The T33 Stradale, which probably many might have predicted!   
Good fun anyway and quite different to a quiz or talk.   Thanks to the 20+ who joined in on the night, and to Jason for catching some of the action from his screen.
