Stelvio QV is the "road" car in the Ultimate Speed Comparison.  ALL course cars (except for those dedicated to the F1 race) are Giulias and Stelvios.  Also three Giuliettas in TCR.
Alfas everywhere.  The Alfa F1 garage was one of the few open for this mornings pit lane walk.

I'm feeling it for the casual staff and the franchised stall holders that have outlaid huge amounts of money on stock be hats and tee shirts or food and drink and now no return.
Or the overseas visitors who paid for a trip to Australia for a GP holiday and have the race cancelled.
The cancellation of the race has set a presedent it will be interesting to see the extent of the backlash and any government response, I can't think of any other sporting event of this size being cancelled in Australia

I suppose it was only a matter of time that the reality, spread and urgency of the coronavirus would hit our shores. It has heavily impacted communities worldwide and it is not worth the risk that this virus will create on individuals. The wife has just cancelled our European trip planned for this year for the fear/uncertainty it will impact on our holiday (cancellations/lockout/closed/contracting the virus, etc,etc).

What might have been.............................!

All course cars Giulias and Stelvios.  4 x Giuliettas in TCR..........Mick Caruso qualified 2nd fastest.  Stelvio QV is the "road car" in the Ultimate Speed Comparison.
At lease we got to see and hear a couple of very loud Giulia QV's hammer out of pit line on Thusday!
