A Mostly British Obsession

2010 Vintage Races at Pacific Raceways

German GP Winning Alfa Romeo P3

Had an enjoyable time at the vintage races at Pacific Races on Saturday. I didn’t unsheath my camera all that often but was thrilled with the three vintage Alfas, including the machine Nuvolari drove to victory in the 1935 German Grand Prix, widely considered the greatest drive of all time.

Alfa Junior Zagato. (The Alfa club had this large tent set up, or they commandeered it, either way lots of joking about the necessity given what happens when you mix Alfas and water…)

    More red wheel fixation. However, the wheels are appropriate for that vintage motor.
