A former Rally of the Tests winning steed (2017), this Alfa Romeo is the ideal entrant for Winter Challenge, Classic Marathon , Rally of the Tests, and a plethora of club and international events.
Sourced and imported from Norway in 2008, #353276 was originally restored and prepared for motorsport in 2001 by Saul Manashe in Norway. It has been comprehensively prepared, fettled and upgraded by Kevin Savage Motorsport of Lancashire and now features full roll cage, uprated shock absorbers, an engine coolant header tank, limited slip differential, comfortable rally-grade front seats, additional instrumentation and two Cibie Oscar driving lamps.
Our car was sourced and developed for known Irish motorsport competitor, Dermot Carnegie, at a cost of more than £32,000 in 2008 with invoices detailing the considerable work undertaken and all available for viewing. Dermot campaigned the car successfully winning the Winter Trial and Rally of the Tests in 2010, all the while having the car maintained and prepared by Savage.
Amongst the many invoices from Carnegie’s ownership, perhaps the most notable reference a gearbox rebuild in December 2010 (£3,300), and engine rebuild in November 2011 at a cost of £5,700, which resulted in a recorded 137bhp on the rolling-road.
The reins passed in 2013 to the current keeper with whom many further successes have been enjoyed, always under the watchful eye and reassurance of being Savage Motorsport maintained.
In total, there are too many invoices to do justice to the car here, but suffice to say they combine to further evidence the winning-capability of this Alfa Romeo, and those who travel to view the car will be richly rewarded by the level of detail and expertise that they document within.
Accompanied with FIVA Identity Card dated 2013, and MSA/FIA Historic Regularity Rally Log Book numbered 10/009 & signed and dated 2010, save for minor preparation works to comply with individual rally regulations, this is a turn-key competitive entrant to a host of blue-ribband events.
Priced incredibly sensibly, we dread to think what the replacement cost may be today…..
“Cars with a purpose” is our favourite stock-offering, & they don’t get much more determined than this!
