Alfa Romeo in the BTCC 1994

There are no translations available.

Alfa-Models-BTCC-1994In 1994 Alfa Romeo prepared two Alfa Romeo 155's for the Auto Trader British Touring Car Championship. While many changes were allowed to the cars' performance and handling, the bodyshell and chassis were standard. Also known as the Alfa 155 D2, the car had a 2 litre 16 valve 4 cylinder 'Lampredi' engine, the same as the engine in the Alfa Romeo 155 Q4 but without the turbo and with a dry sump and five-stage oil pump. The engine developed over 280 HP and accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h in around 3 seconds. The cars top speed was well over 250 km/h. Delivering this power to the road was a 6-speed Hewland sequential gearbox.

Alfa Corse had an amazing start of the season; Gabriele Tarquini won all races until the other teams started complaining about the rear spoiler and some other aerodynamic novelties on the Alfa. Just prior to the race at Oulton Park on 30th May, Alfa Corse was ordered to drive without the aerodynamics package. Alfa refused and withdrew from the race. The issue was later settled and the Alfa's raced again on Brands Hatch, taking a double victory. The other teams came with aerodynamic modifications during the season, making it harder for Alfa to win. However, Gabriele Tarquini won the 1994 championship and Alfa Corse won the constructors championship.
