Automobilsport n°16 – avril/mai/juin 2018

The mood was as gloomy as the weather at the Zolder circuit in Belgium at the beginning of April in 1993. The Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, the jewel in German motorsport’s crown and the home of the country’s major manufacturers, looked deflated thanks to the mid-season withdrawal of Audi. Just months earlier the entire series had seemed destined to be cancelled, with specialist magazine auto motor und sport calling a crisis meeting in Stuttgart.   Then, the gloomy silence is broken by the scream of a free-revving V6 engine.

The mood was as gloomy as the weather at the Zolder circuit in Belgium at the beginning of April in 1993. The Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, the jewel in German motorsport’s crown and the home of the country’s major manufacturers, looked deflated thanks to the mid-season withdrawal of Audi. Just months earlier the entire series had seemed destined to be cancelled, with specialist magazine auto motor und sport calling a crisis meeting in Stuttgart.   Then, the gloomy silence is broken by the scream of a free-revving V6 engine. A pair of twin headlights shinesbrightly through the spray as the red Alfa 155 breaks through the grey wall of water and fires towards the chicane. It quickly slows before the 90-degree left turn, scraping its carbon fibre along the tarmac. Despite the water the car corners as if it were on rails. With a furious roar it powers out of the right-hander and onto the start/finish straight.   The DTM has never seen anything like it before. It’s the latest technology combined with pure emotion; after all, ‘grande emozione’ is an important part of Italian motor racing. Alfa’s entry is a new beginning for the nine-year-old series, and few others could play the role of the passionate hero so perfectly.   Everything about the Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti, and much more, in our new issue!
