Guest re­turns to the tracks with iconic Alfa GTV

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Alfa Romeo dealer Ian Guest has ended a five-year sab­bat­i­cal from rac­ing to en­ter the His­toric Tour­ing Car Chal­lenge in a 1984 GTV6.

Guest re­cently bought two GTV6S from Bel­gium and model ex­pert Chris Snow­den has stripped and re­built one of them over the last six months. The other car is an ex-luigi team racer. “It cer­tainly raced in the 1980s and we’re cur­rently run­ning in the in­vi­ta­tion class,” said Guest, who is the Alfa dealer for Wolver­hamp­ton. “It’s the first time I’ve ever raced an Alfa and I’m shar­ing it with Chris.”

Snow­den has his own Alfa Romeo GTV6, which ran at Good­wood in March.
