Festival of Speed on next weekend, I count 15 Alfas competing: http://www.vhrr.com/Event-Schedule&Competitor-List-Winton-2014.pdf

That link also has the event schedule.  Bottchers will be up there on Sunday to watch.  The two longer races - the Rose City and the Tourist Trophy - were brilliant viewing last year.

Winton has to be one of the best venues for spectators.  Drive your car around to the other side of the track and park up against the fence, cook a bbq if you want, have a couple of warm or cold beverages and watch the action.  You can see more than half the track from just about anywhere.  Lots to see, and it's very family-friendly (and someone can take the kids in to the rocket park in Benalla in 5 mins if they get bored).

An additional tip - take the back way up or back, e.g. Whittlesea-Yea-Bonnie Doon-Swanpool-Benalla.  Make a proper Alfa day of it.

See you up there!
