My new 116 toy
Here's my latest purchase a 1976 GTV. According to the race log book it started out as a race car in 1996, competing as rally car. It has had three owners since 96 in which time it has been modified to a track car.

Lumpy cams (Unknown profile, to be confirmed)
Took the car for a blast down the road and man what a blast. Having never driven a race modified Alfa on the road, it was completely awesome. The pure noise from the open ram pods on the 40mm dellortos with lumpy cams, the noise from the front was just immense, added to that, a single muffled 2" side pipe out the back, it noise was just exhilarating. I don't think i have ever been in a car where the noise from the carbies has been so loud and changed so much throughout the rev range.
I can't wait to get it on a race track now.
I need to find a trailer to drag it around to as many tracks as New Zealand will offer to me.
I also need some help with setting up the front suspension, I feel it has been lowered to much and will love to know the optimal ride height. (I'll also ask this on the Alfetta page).
Has anyone seen this car race or have information on it. I only have the small amount that is written in the log book.
