I'm pleased that KMW will be back with the #5 car - good news for Alfisti. They showed good potential in '19, and I hope they'll be capitalizing on what they learned for this season.

James Walker, Jr. will not be returning to TCR in the SRO series, and it appears that Risi won't be competing. Hopefully something will change and there will be an Alfa in TCR in that series as well.

I'll be writing up the Alfa efforts in TCR for Alfa Owner, and I'd appreciate any photographs anyone takes at the races. If anyone wants to write up a short article about a race, we'd appreciate that as well. You can always reach me at [email protected].

Ciao,

Mike Hemsley

Yes, a first.

But they finished 13th.

Does anyone know what happened?

(I was at work and couldn't watch the race.)

Exhaust header broke and something else, fixed it and went back out and finished race.

From the KMW Motorsports facebook page:

"Ups and downs but we got the pole position, and led the first stint solidly. A cracked exhaust manifold took us out for 14 laps but we came back in and worked back up to p13. Our day is coming. Our little black Alfa is quick and our drivers have a handle on it."

Also, this year the car has a Quadrifoglio on the fenders! This should appease the ghosts of Alfa racers past. 馃崁
