Another part of the history of our 1966 Autodelta GTA discovered!
We have just received some interesting new information about our Autodelta GTA – 613102. Martin Übelher and Patrick Dasse (the authors of the wonderful new version of Alleggerita) have discovered a photograph in a collection which reveals something not previously known! In addition to the already remarkable history of the car, this photo shows that the car was raced by Bussinello/”Geki” in the 6 hour race at the Nürburgring on 3rd July 1966. Sadly, it lasted only 25 minutes (2 laps of the infamous Nordschleife) until the engine gave up. As a result, there was very little opportunity to photograph the car in action, but Martin and Patrick have stumbled upon the vital photo!
For the past few years, we have been working closely with Martin & Patrick as part of their research for publishing the updated Alleggerita; we thoroughly recommend any GTA owner keen to learn some more history of their car to get in touch with Martin and Patrick to see what information is known. They are already working on a new book as a supplement to Alleggerita, which will be called “Alleggerita – Additions to the Register” and will probably be published sometime in 2014. Who knows what else they will find!
