Olaf, if GTAm #26 is chassis 1530952 it should have a plate number MI L27247, according to the book GTA by Maurizio Tabucchi. Are there any other pictures from the same race showing its plates?

MI L27247 is GTAm chassis number 1530952, the first picture is from Nurburgring, I suppose and the second is from Monza.The pictures were found while surfing through google, I also checked through the books GTA by Maurizio Tabucchi and Alleggerita by Tony Adriaensens.

so interesting to see in the black and white "criterium des chevennes" pictures the SPECIAL autodelta gtam part extended bumper which in some cases was plastic .
i do not have with me the part number right now but it was on the homologation sheets for the special gtam apendixes .
versus the pictures that follow which simply had a 1750 gtv usa stainelees stell bumper which did not cover completely the fender flares.
great pictures thenk you
Takis, can you help us with the text here ?
Only thing I understand is "Alfa", "2000" "GTAM" and "BMW".
I guess the pictures are taken at Rhodos.
The last picture is also probably from the Rhodos race
The pictures are from a race at the island of Corfu.The stepfront is an original GTA 1600 that was transformed with GTAm mechanicals and wide fender flares, in this race it was driven by Lakis Fotiadis, in fact it is the same car in which Yiannis Mauros was killed at the island of Rhodos.
The GTAm race number 7 is the genuine one that was imported by Motor Hellas back then and i think at this race it was driven by Moschous (i must check through my archives and inform you).
