Alfa Romeo racing and rally cars: books

A book on Alfa Romeo passenger cars? Here are books on the history, models and technology of Alfa Romeo racing and rally passenger cars.

Autodelta : Alfa Romeo Racing 1963-1983

The Autodelta story, Alfa Romeo's more or less official racing department between 1963 and 1983. A tale of unforgettable victories, of two titles conquered in the World Championship for Marques, but also one of scalding defeats.

Great names in the history of motorsport raced in the colours of the team born in the province of Udine and nurtured at Settimo Milanese including Ignazio Giunti, Nino Vaccarella, Andrea de Adamich and Toine Hezemans.

All drivers competed - under the aegis of the incomparable Carlo Chiti - at the wheel of unforgettable cars such as the Giulia TZ, the GTA, the 33 in its various guises, the Alfetta GT rally cars and naturally the less successful Formula 1 machines.
All this is revived in a book constructed around painstaking research and illustrated with hundreds of photographs, many of which previously unpublished

Alfa Romeo & Formula 1 : From the first World Championship to the long-awaited return

The story returns, with new chapters and prospects about to unfold. The agreement between Sauber and Alfa Romeo brings back to the World Championship stage a name that for so long was an integral part of Formula 1 series.
Going back to the 1950 and 1951 seasons, the championship was bathed in the red of the Portello's cars.
Then came the eras of Chiti, Autodelta, the partnership with Brabham and then the Biscione marque's return to F1 with the Alfa-Alfa.

This book contains all this and much more, including the two seasons in the early Seventies with McLaren and March, the premature implosion of the agreement with Ligier, the sporadic appearances, especially of South African drivers, at the wheel of cars powered by an Alfa Romeo engine.
The story is comprehensively illustrated with hundreds of colour and black and white images, many previously unpublished, and a list of all the results obtained by Alfa Romeo in Formula 1.

Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 : The Development and Racing History

At the time, little was recorded about the activities of Alfa Romeo's World Championship-winning Sports Racing car, the Tipo 33. The model had a long career, as a factory car as well as in private hands from 1967 until 1977.

The great Italian motor sport engineer Carlo Chiti designed and ran a prolific number of different models of this Tipo. Unfortunately nothing of the history of these developments was documented at the time, but the authors have managed, after intense investigation and numerous personal interviews, to uncover much about this marvelous sports prototype.
The fruits of their labors abound, manifesting as many previously unseen photographs and the personal recollections of the prime movers in the Tipo 33's career. If you like Alfas, you'll love this book.

Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 / 1967

This book focuses exclusively on the development of the Tipo 33 and the motorsport activities of the car during 1967. It was a long held belief that there was only scarce documentation available concerning Autodelta, the motorsport company.
With the help of Dr. Marco Fazio we were able to unearth various diverse records from the Alfa Romeo archives which contained detailed reports of the race activities of Autodelta. With such records to hand we were able to build an complete picture, free of any doubt, of the cars that participated in races during 1967 in the works team.

In addition to the racing participation of the Tipo 33 we have also covered aspects of the Tipo 33 Stradale and the related Alfa Romeo OSI Scarabeo.

Work on a second book covereing the 1968 racing season is currently under way.

Alfa Romeo T33/TT/3 - The remarkable history of 115.72.002 (Exceptional Cars)

The Alfa Romeo T33/TT/3 was produced by Alfa's Autodelta racing department to compete in the 1972 World Championship for Makes. The Alfas struggled to take the fight to Ferrari, though scored regular podium positions. The highlight was a second place in the epic Targa Florio Sicilian road race, where Helmut Marko put in a stirring drive to come within seconds of victory.
Marko was driving chassis 115.72.002, the most successful of the T33/TT/3 chassis, which would later have a second career on the race circuits and hillclimbs of Greece, prior to an eventual return to Europe, where it is still a frequent competitor in historic events.

The book is lavishly illustrated with a mix of period and contemporary images, many previously unpublished, including a gallery of colour photographs showing the car in all its fascinating detail.
