Championship Finale – Silverstone

The championship heads to Silverstone this weekend and there are 32 Alfas entered including a record 18 class E cars. If haven’t read Michael Lindsay’s preview yet, take a look here. We plan to hold another panel meeting to finalise a few points for 2015 so if you have anything you would like to put forward, please email the panel. We’d love it if you could join us for an end of season Hog Roast on Saturday evening in the paddock from 6pm. If you can’t make it this weekend, be sure to follow live timing, tweets and photos, right here on alfaracer.

For those racing in last years Silverstone International rounds, the weather played a big part, especially in the Sunday race. It was certainly one of the wettest races I can remember, maybe just behind Pembrey 2007. Can you think of worse?

If it rains like that again, heres a good idea of the visibility from on board “Big Yella”, which is sadly for sale.

We received a message on twitter during the week to let us know that we’d been nominated in the “Best Saloon Series” category for the Downforce Radio Awards. We have some tough competition from the likes of the BTCC & Super Touring cars so if you’d like to help us out, head to the downforce website.
