Hows the hunt for red October going? (75ts) it was good chatting with you at Winton also. Your GP GTV6 looks a million bucks, a really nice example of one. There were some nice Alfas in the car park that day. Nigel's red 75 3lt. really gets my attention, dam that's a nice 75.
Hope to see you on the track one day soon, it really is a lot of fun. l remember my first time in the 75ts, l was pretty nervous about it, didn't know anyone other than Neil from a few phone calls to orgainise things. l knew one or two faces in the pits and that's about it. l think l was lucky that day, l found Ivan and Claude, both BIG TIME 75ts fans who helped me out with tyre pressures and general advice. They really made me feel right at home that day, and nothing was a prob. Out on the track Claude showed me the lines and things to look out for. After a few sessions l was amazed at the 75ts performance, l'll never forget the feeling of just flowing the car around the circuit, l loved it. Was it fast? l didn't really know, l didn't care, l was just glad to finally get out and do it.
Latter in the day, l had what is still probably my best ever time, as in fun, at a club track day. l was very very slowly catching a Goldish coloured 75 that looked pretty racey so l tried harder to catch it. The sessions that followed were just brilliant, chasing, drafting and heaps of fun, thanks John if your reading this, it still makes me smile thinking back to that day.
Anyone thinking about a club track day in a standard Alfa, l say have a go, plenty of good people who are more than helpful. l have found it's not that hard on the car really, the breaks are the only part that work hard, but they recover well.
