Unnecessary brackets and mountings were removed and special welding was made. The end result was a chassis that was twice as stiff as the road car and 40 kilos lighter than the minimum weight limit. The race engine was different. It was based on another inline four cylinder engine that had been used by Fiat in rallying.
The head of the engine was taken from the Q4 turbo-model, but rotated degrees. The rotation of the head allowed for better cooling of the engine and a lower base of weight. As with all Super Touring specification engines the re build intervals were small. The engines had to be rebuild every km, a process taking a total of 80 hours to complete. Again, the harder a racing series tries to keep cars as standard as possible, the more innovative race teams get to modify them for competition.
Alfa had at least some firm ground to stand on. All this ended up with was for , teams were allowed to run whatever modified wings and bumpers they wanted, giving up on these homologation special rules entirely. Alfa basically flipped the board. Honestly, I like that cheat a lot and things like this should be done more often by OEMs. For those of us that have a DD that we want to have fun with, it would be nice to drive to work and then with a few hand tools have the car work better when playing at the track.
And it involves parts getting shoved in the trunk. This one comes from a famous Italian team causing a bit of a stir in the United Kingdom. This sent me on a tear of watching old BTCC videos and reviews, but none of them took me to this ingenious cheat-then-not-a-cheat from Alfa Romeo. Lancia won six titles in a row in the WRC, but then pulled out at the top. What happened to the team afterwards?
Fiat decided that its racing efforts would be switched over from Lancia to Alfa Romeo, and from rallying to touring car racing. They finished third in , then were relocated to the much more interesting British Touring Car Championship, the hottest touring car series at the time. The team was an instant success, with Tarquini winning the first five races, but the Alfa also became the target for a certain amount of politics.
The Silverstone had a homologated front spoiler with an adjustable splitter. We immediately made an appeal, went to the court in London where the letter came from FISA and that stopped everything. It was an amazing achievement, and one of which Ninni was rightly proud. This is a slight exaggeration of what Alfa Romeo did. You find all the usual things in the boot of an Alfa Romeo Silverstone: spare wheel, jack, wheelbrace, a few tools.
But you find other things, too, included in the price of pounds 13, There are four black steel plates, about 8in long, bent into a U-section 2.
The handbook tells you neither what they are for, nor where to fit them.
