A pulsating race saw Pirro get the better start, then both cars trading fastest lap times until fuel issues struck both cars only 5 minutes from the chequered flag.
The race also saw rare outings in Italy for 2 other Sporting and Historic race cars. The Alfa Romeo T33/3 and T33/2 Daytona, both of which attracted lots of attention by the adoring public, especially the sight of Nanni Galli re-united with the historic Alfa Romeo's.

Emanuele Pirro Joins the Sporting & Historic Car Engineers Team

Written by Sporting Cars.

Emanuele Pirro joins the Sporting & Historic Car Engineers team for some of the Classic Endurance Racing series.
He tested at Silverstone recently with the Ferrari 512S, Alfa Romeo T33/T3 and Lola T290 in preparation for Spa where driving the Alfa he put in a superb performance to lead the race for the first lap, eventually being passed by the much nimbler Chevron B19, who edged away. Pirro ran a very strong 2nd place then handed over to the owner for the second half of the race who brought the car home to a well deserved 7th overall.
The Alfa having been restored by ourselves over the last couple of years ran faultlessly and a delighted Emanuele commented on how good the engine felt and what a joy the car was to drive.
This weekend Emanuele joins us at Dijon for the Classic Endurance Racing Series in the Ferrari 512S, which he will share with Peter Read and Bob
Earle.
