John Foshee Remembered a Little Bit
John and Ernie were honored by Alfa Romeo, Inc. at a dinner in a private section of the "Windows on the World" at the World Trade Center in 1986 for their contribution furthering Alfa Romeo racing efforts in the United States.
Their car was featured in a slide presentation, National Sales Manager Aldo Bozzi spoke as did other dignataries and both racers were treated to a financial prize, a trophy and anything else Alfa Romeo, Inc. could do for them. The dinner was splendid as was the million dollar view. All during the year Technical Services and the National Parts and National Service Departments supported the team with any parts they needed, technical advice and overnight shipments of Autodelta parts to help them achieve their goals. If ARI had the racing budget and national stage of Porsche and VW Headquarters down the street, everyone would have recognized John and Ernie's name without me telling this story.
