- A fascinating historic racing Alfa Romeo with a successful competition history
- FIA accredited until 2025 in “period F (’62 - ‘65)” with potential for “period L” accreditation
- Maintained and prepared by specialists Classic and Race in Worcestershire
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti was the first of the Giulia family of cars to be introduce in 1962. Alfa Romeo were trail blazers in the practice of putting powerful, sports orientated engines in relatively light four-door saloons resulting in agile and rapid performers beloved by law enforcers as well as those they were often pursuing. It is unsurprising, then, that the Giulia family of saloons and coupes were soon excelling on the racetracks and rally stages of Europe and beyond.
Our example is understood to have started life as a standard, road-going Giulia Ti saloon and to have spent time as a rally car in Scandinavia around 2010 and 2011. Our vendor bought the car in Denmark in December 2018 where it had enjoyed successful competition in many classic events. With current FIA paperwork for Period F competition this Giulia is ready to race and enjoy.
The History and Paperwork
- Believed to have started life as a standard, production Giulia Ti Super in 1964
- Not too much is known about the early life of our car
- The vendor understands that the car competed in Scandinavia as a rally car in around 2010
- Our owner acquired the car in Denmark in 2018 and bought the car to the UK
- Intending to race in the 2019 season, an engine failure at the first event spoiled the plan
- A full £11,000 engine rebuild to the highest FIA specification was undertaken
- The car has competed since then and been prepared and maintained by Classic & Race
- The car currently holds FIA accreditation for Period F which is valid until 2025
- It is understood a Period L accreditation could be easily achieved if required
- As well as FIA paperwork there are many invoices on hand also
- These detail the work and preparation undertaken by Classic & Race
- Being a fully-fledged competition car, the interior is mostly stripped out
- Most of the original dashboard and instruments are still present
- All FIA required systems are present such as racing seat, belts and Lifeline fire system
The Giulia Ti Super lends itself to competition success so well as it starts out as a light car. In full road trim the cars were only around 1,100 kgs which is featherweight by today’s standards. Needless to say, many of the accoutrements of a family saloon’s comfortable interior become superfluous on the racetrack. It will come as no surprise, then, that the original interior has been almost completely stripped out.
The majority of the original instrument binnacle and associated dashboard remain, but otherwise painted metal predominates. All the racing “must-haves” are evident, however. These include the Sparco Sprint race seat and TRS six-point race harnesses. The vendor reports that the seat is currently in date, it's also been fitted with brand new seat belts which are valid until 2027. Other race features include the regulation engine and fuel cut offs, full roll cage and exposed fuse board. The fire extinguisher has been serviced and it is valid until February 2025.
The boot is home to a newly fabricated, 40L quick-fill fuel tank catering for longer races. A Personal race steering wheel is fitted, and a lengthened gear lever helps with fast changes.
- Looking purposeful predominantly in white with racing stripes and numerous period stickers
- Sitting on competition Minilite style competition alloy wheels
- A spare set of alloy wheels is also included and fitted with M Type Dunlop tyres
From the exterior there is no mistaking the competition credentials of our Alfa Romeo. Predominantly finished in white, the car also sports “Tricolore” style racing stripes running along the centreline of the car from bonnet to boot. Numerous period event stickers are affixed to the car’s flanks, helping to document some of the competition successes achieved by the car.
At the front end the inner pair of headlights have been blanked out with the outer pair cross-taped for safety. The chrome bumpers have been removed in order to save weight, but these are included with the car and pictured. The obligatory electrical cut off and fire system switch are fitted to the wing. Front and rear tow points are present and clearly marked as required.
The wheels are 15-inch Compomotive ML items and appear to be in a great overall condition. These are fitted with Dunlop M type racing specification tyres. Considering the sporting background of this little Alfa Romeo, its exterior condition appears to be excellent overall.
- Fitted with a fully rebuilt 1600cc race engine and professionally prepared before each race
- The car is reported to have run very reliably since this 2019 rebuild
- It is considered as a competitive performer amongst cars of a similar specification
Due to an engine failure at the first race of 2019, our vendor commissioned a full, £11,000 engine rebuild with specialists Classic & Race of Worcestershire. This work included the fitting of Cosworth pistons and Arrow conrods. The engine was lightened and balanced and fitted with a strengthened sump, big valve head, new cams and liners. It's also currently running on 45mm Weber carburetors. This takes the engine to the limit of FIA specifications for this group. Since the rebuild the car has been maintained by Classic & Race and is prepared by them before every race.
It’s not just the engine that has received this specialist attention either. A new Gripper limited slip differential was fitted in 2020 along with a full suspension strip-down and rebuild. At this point, all joints, bushings and springs were renewed, with new front shock absorbers fitted at that stage. The brakes have been recently stripped and rebuilt and it had new Pro-friction front pads before its last race which was the 2022 Thruxton Historic Festival.
At this meet the owner was very pleased with the car’s performance, reporting that the car was “lapping several seconds a lap faster than similar cars.” The car is now fully race ready and well placed to compete in HRDC, Equipe, and CSCC.
There is an enormous amount of work, not to say money, involved in creating a competitive racing car, whatever class it is competing in. Doing all the right things and spending the requisite amount of money doesn’t automatically translate into a competitive machine. That’s why investing in a proven and competitive car makes so much sense.
This Giulia Ti Super offers you just that rare opportunity. This is a professionally prepared and maintained car with a proven pedigree of competition success. It is FIA accredited and ready to race and enjoy. Opportunities like this aren’t common so if you are an existing historic racer or someone with aspirations to be one then this car represents a significant opportunity for you.
