Footnotes

  • This historically important Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA comes with Italian issued FIA Historic Technical Passport (Class CT 8, Period: F) and a substantial quantity of in-period and subsequent historic racing history. The accompanying information sheet (issued 1988) from the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo confirms the build date as 4th June 1965 and the date of sale to the first owner as 15th June that same year. The first owner is listed as Scagliola Michelino of Turin.

    No time was wasted and the car was entered in its first race on 20th June 1965 at the Garessio - Colle San Bernardo, where it finished 2nd in class in the over-1,300cc GT category, driven by Angelo Corio. He drove the car in a further four races in 1965 and the following year entered '613018' in no fewer than 11 events. Among the noteworthy results are 1st in class finishes in the Castel'Arquato - Vernasca hill climb, the Garesso - San Bernardo and the Course de Cote du St Cesaire. The car continued to be campaigned successfully every year until 1971 and even in that year was still competitive enough to finish 2nd in class twice.

    In 1988 the Alfa was acquired by the well known official Alfa Romeo Club for historic racing, 'Scuderia del Portello' and embarked on an equally successful second career, commencing with a participation in that year's Historic Targa Florio, while in 1989 Marco Cajani drove the GTA to a very respectable 3rd in class (up to 1,600 cc) in The Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nürburgring. In 1991 the car was again raced successfully in the FIA European Challenge for Historic Touring Cars by Paolo de Cristoforo and Gino Pozzo, finishing 2nd overall at Le Beausset and Zandvoort, 3rd overall at Vallelunga, 5th at Silverstone, 7th at the Nurburgring and 21st at Zolder.

    After an accident in 1994, the GTA was professionally restored by the Scuderia del Portello and was once again ready for historic racing events, including the Coppa Intereuropa di Monza, the Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nurbrugring and the 100 Ore di Modena. At the Goodwood Revival Meeting in 2005, it was driven by the president of the Scuderia del Portello, Marco Cajani and Italian racing legend, Arturo Merzario, finishing 1st in class. Merzario drove this car successfully three more times: in the Coppa Intereuropa at Monza in 2010, 2011 and 2012. A complete list of this very competitive GTA's race results is on file.

    '613018' is mentioned in the 'Allegerita' book by Adriaensens, Dasse and Ubelher as well as featuring in an article in the 13th October 1988 issue of 'Auto Oggi' (copy on file) and the book 'Scuderia del Portello 1982 – 2012'. This GTA is offered with the aforementioned current and past FIA HTP papers and Alfa Romeo Centro Documentazione information sheet as well as its entry for the 'Catalogo Storico Alfa Romeo da Competizione' where this car was the third admitted.

    Described as in excellent condition throughout with an engine rebuilt by Baggioli, this very rare GTA not only comes from one of the best collections of historic Alfa Romeos but also boasts notable successes in both in-period and historic racing.
