Bentley has revealed a First Edition version of its new Flying Spur luxury saloon that will only be available for the first 12 months of the car’s production run.
 

The Alfa Romeo brand is to return to the British Touring Car Championship in 2018, with a Giulietta model run by existing team Handy Motorsport.

The programme has been announced today at the BTCC meeting at Rockingham, and the new car will make its debut in the opening round of the 2018 series at Brands Hatch on 8th April.

Dealer backed

Handy currently runs driver Rob Austin in a Toyota Avensis, competing in the main championship and the independents category. The new team will continue as an independent rather than a manufacturer entry, though it has attracted backing from the Alfa Romeo Dealer Council.

“It has been a long project to bring Alfa Romeo back to the BTCC, with many people working on this exciting development for some time – it’s incredible to have brought everything to fruition and an honour to be running the Alfa Romeo marque”, said Handy Motorsport team principal Belcher at the launch.

   

“Alfa Romeo is a passionate brand, steeped in heritage, and we have already started building our first bodyshell. Not only is this huge for Handy Motorsport, and fantastic for Alfa to have the latest Giulietta represented on the BTCC grid, it’s also massive for the BTCC as a whole.”

Alfa Romeo has a successful previous history in the BTCC, last winning the title in 1994 with a manufacturer entry piloted by Italian Gabriele Tarquini.
