SPOTLIGHT ON...

Alfa 8C2900B MM at the Simeone Museum

Alfa Romeo SpotlightOver the next several months I will write short articles (tech-spec) for the Capital Chapter newsletter about some of the famous race cars of the Simeone collection. I will show pictures I took of many of the mechanical attributes of these cars and try to point out some of the features that made them outstanding racing cars. The first car up is the “crème de la crème” of Alfa Romeo race cars, the 1938 8C2900B MM serial # 412031 which won the 1938 Mille Miglia. I will be discussing some of the technical attributes of the car and what made it so successful. We will be looking at details of the suspension and chassis and showing pictures of areas of the car that are not normally seen. I hope you enjoy these “tech-specs” as much as I have in researching the specifics and showing pictures and admiring the technical solutions that were employed during these early days of racing. The full article can be linked from the Articles tab in the menu.
