Some pics from last year’s ‘ring trip in the (now departed) Alfa GTV V6;

I didn’t quite trust it to get there without drama, so cheated…

Old meets new outside the historic paddock…

Cold, wet and grey. And slippy…

And at Kallenhard, I “enjoyed” a lot of lift-off oversteer…

The same corner caused a BMW to go all airbaggy, which caused this…

It was cold, wet and ‘orrible as I finished my hot lap…

The car earned it’s sticker, which pulled the lacquer off, because that’s what Alfas are like.

Soon after this trip the Alfa went to to live with a nice man in Bolton and I replaced it with a flaky Fiat.
