RECENTLY the Italian classic car magazine Ruoteclassiche published on its blog photos from some of the most successful cars from Alfa Romeo’s Autodelta motorsports department.
Alfa Romeo took the cars to the Balocco test track, west of Milan, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Autodelta, which was founded by Ing. Carlo Chiti and Ing. Lodovico Chizzola March 4, 1963 as Auto-Delta. On November 30, 1964, the name was changed to Autodelta, and in 1966 the team became officially part of Alfa Romeo.
The pictures were shot March 22, 2013 and the weather seems to have been far better than a week earlier when the Alfa Romeo Club Milano and Alfa Romeo Owners Club Alfissima organised their Autodelta50 event when the visitors had to deal with rain.
