Believe Otto Zipper raced two seperate T33's in Can-Am racing. In 1969 and 1970 Scooter Patrick piloted a T33/2 with success. I don't have any record of 1971 but Otto Zipper racing was back in 1972 with a T33/3 (78080-023). There is talk that this chassis appeared with a four litre engine at Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen and Riverside that year. 023 was piloted by Milt Minter in 73 and 74.
I was fortunate enough to be succesful in purchasing a Otto Zipper press pack from 1970. From the release I quote "Zipper plans to open the 1970 campain with an Alfa T33 2-litre prototype, adding a new 3-litre T33 and an under 2-litre Alfa Trans-Am car later in the season". I will scan the release and post here if there is any interest.
