Glorious Alfa Island March 2010

The Alfa Romeo Owners Club of Australia held a special race meeting at Phillip Island Raceway in March this year.  It was called Alfa Island and was an Alfa-only event over two days.  Words cannot describe how special it was to participate in one of the biggest Alfa Romeo events in the world this centenary year – a few highlights:

  • meeting visitors with their Alfas from all over Australia coming together to celebrate the marque through motorsport
  • sharing a track day with the Peter Giddings P3 race car, a TZ-1, ES-30 Zagato, and 105 GTAs
  • the Alfetta 159 on display – probably the most celebrated grand prix racing car of all time
  • a parade of hundreds of Alfas mobbing the circuit at lunchtime

I was fortunate enough to win my class for the day, for which I took home a handsome trophy and keepsake.  Competing was enough reward however.

Here’s some video I took on the day:
