Alfa Romeo started recording victories at the Nürburgring in the 1930s, in the hands of world famous drivers including Tazio Nuvolari, who won the German Grand Prix at the wheel of a 8C 2300 Tipo Monza in 1932 and a Tipo B-P3 in 1935. In 1966 the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA became the first GT car to make it round the Nurburgring in under ten minutes. In 1975 the Alfa Romeo 33 TT 12 driven by Arturo Merzario triumphed in Germany before going on to win the World Sportscar Championship. On June 10, 1993, Nicola Larini’s 155 V6 Ti won both heats of the most prestigious race of the “DTM” championship, held on the Nürburgring circuit. The Italian driver repeated Nuvolari’s feat by winning the race with a crushing victory over the other cars, all of which were German.
