Advan Cup

10. june 2007

The two ITR Alfa Romeo 156 racers participated with convincing succes in both heats of the third Advancup venue of the 2007 season. The cars needed some preparation after the scrubbing at Sturup raceway, but the mech-team managed to get both cars ready for the first race on saturday. Mitch Fischermann came in with some wobbling, fearing a transmission breakdown; but it turned out to be an out-of-shape rear wheel - a matter easily fixed by substitution.

The competition (mostly Peugeots) strugglede in the summer heat and several cars came in with broken engines. Not the Alfas though. Despite lack of power the cars behaved fine, and everybody was satisfied after a weekend of racing.
