Any one have any info on this car's whereabouts or indeed John Bicht himself.
Marco Fazio says it was imported by Alfa Inc US 1966, red with black interior.
A stradale that went racing?
I'm thinking maybe the car was a rollover, don't know exactly when.
Any info appreciated

Hello Tim,

I have some notes in my file on GTA 613 633, dated 86/03/13 from an unnoted source that I will share if you share more detail and indicate the reason for your interest and your ID. Do that by PM if you wish.

Regards

Bicht GTA

I saw this car in a disassembled and cut up state in Newtown Square, PA in the early 80's(I think). I believe it went to either Atlanta or Ohio. Hope that helps.

B Sedan and C Sedan were from the class 60s-70s SCCA classes.

A-H Production (sports cars), with A being the fastest and most powerful (Corvettes, Ferraris) and H being the slowest (small Fiats, etc.).

Same with Sedans: A Sedan would be Camaros, Shelby Mustangs, etc. through B, and C being Alfa GT Jr, Fiat 850s, etc. Was there D Sedan? I can't remember.

The main difference between the two classes was engine displacement. B Sedan was 1600cc and C Sedan was 1300cc. I belive there were a couple other things such as wheel size. Anyone know all the details?

I've seen this car ... and it's one of the roughest prepared race cars I've ever seen. I imagine Les has since tidied it up somewhat, but do not know. When I saw it he had just got it. It was an interesting car and apparently had never been road registered.
