Classic Driver – “One of the places that was definitely on my list to visit in Belgium was the ‘Lost Alfas’ – six Alfa Romeo 1960s sport cars left to rot in the bowels of an abandoned castle somewhere in Belgium.”
“On arrival at the castle, we ventured through the grass and found an archway underneath. It looked promising, so we pressed on a little further and discovered the cars”. Tim underlines his insistence on preserving history, with the motto “take photos, and leave only footprints.”
“The cars in question look to be a pair of Giulia 1600 Spiders, a Giulietta 1300 SS Super Sprint and a 1300 Sprint. Since Knifton’s adventure, the castle has been permanently sealed, meaning the unfortunate yet oddly captivating Alfas might be entombed forever”
Mechanical Productions Blog – “Chris Clearihan’s Alfetta which he raced in the 1980s in supercar class. I remember this car being nearly unbeatable; Chris mentioned that he reached 180 mph at Sandown racetrack (Calder) sometime in the mid-80s“
Imagine the noise!
