Alfa racer disqualified in post-race drama at Monza

| 12 Jul 2013

More than 20 classic Alfas took to the track at Monza for the third race of the 2013 Alfa Revival Cup series.

Roberto Arnaldi led for 19 laps out of 24 with his GTAM and took the chequer, but was disqualified after post-race scrutineering.

Arnaldi had been chased most of the way by Alessandro Morteo and Lorenzo Moramarco who were forced out by gearbox failure and then by Austrian Franz Slama whose challenge ended in the gravel at the Parabolica.

That meant that, despite a bad start, Massimo Sordi and his son Fabio took the spoils in their well prepared Giulia GTA 1300 Junior.

Behind them was the English team of Roz Shaw and Chas Matthews with a GTAM, with Alessandro Ripamonti and Isacco Cò in third.

The next event is at the Marco Simoncelli circuit in Misano on 27-28 July.
