Alfa Romeo In Motorsport

Alfa Romeo is a big name in motorsport even today, competing in Formula 1, but they have a long history of racing cars.

They started motor racing in 1911 with two Alfa Romeo 24 HP models that competed in the Targa Florio.

In 1925 Alfa Romeo won the World Manufacturers Championship, and in 1931, the AIACR European Championship.

They won the 1950 and 1951 Formula 1 Championship, which was not an easy feat in those years.

Alfa Romeo won many titles in Le Mans Prototypes, Touring Car, and Fast Touring Championships between the 60s and 70s.

Even privateers entered Rally events with Alfa Romeos to great success.

Alfa Romeo later moved over its racing division to Scuderia Ferrari and focused more on engine supplying via Alfa Corse and Autodelta.

Alfa Romeo also won 5 Formula 3 Championships and 5 Formula 3 Cups.

Final Thoughts On Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo is a bit on the back burner these days with popular models, and the variety is also minimal, with just three models currently available.

Let’s hope they get a second wind sometime in the future, as it would be sad to lose Alfa Romeo as a manufacturer with such a rich and full history.
