The car as it would have looked in 1975
Here is a poster celebrating winning the championship in the 1975 season with (if I am correct) Arturo Merzario behind the wheel of an 33TT12. Merzario was quite small and had a white coloured helmet just like the driver in the photograph. WKRT stands for Willi Kauhsen Racing Team, because and I quote from the book Alfa Romeo Tipo 33; quote 'at that time Alfa Romeo was owned by the Italian state and the politics of the time meant that it was not popular for Alfa Romeo to be seen spending so much on sports car racing' unquote. Although the name Willi Kauhsen suggests that it was a German racing team and although Willi arranged some German sponsorhip from a sausage manufacturer, the cars were run and serviced by Autodelta. From the Spa 750 kilometers (run on the 4th of may 1975), Campari stepped in as a sponsor. Therefore a lot of the photographs with 33TT12's from the 1975 season can be seen with the Campari sponsorship on the cars. I got this poster from the internet but do not know the source anymore.
