While the car to beat in the GPS Classic-organised Alfa Revival Cup is the GTaM if it’s an overall race win you’re after, to win the championship you have only to beat other cars of the same age and cubic capacity as your own. In an effective Index of Performance ranking, this year’s Alfa Revival Cup champions are Alessandro and Emanuele Morteo, who drove their 1961 Giulietta Ti to victory in a season that comprised six one-hour mini endurance races at some of Italy’s greatest race tracks. Accompanying them on the championship podium are Massimo Guerra and Franco Mischis, driving a 1600 GTA and Luigi Mercatali, who took third in his GT Veloce 2000. The Alfa Revival Cup, for rear wheel drive Alfa Romeos built from 1947 to 1981, enjoyed its best season yet since Tommaso Gelmini and his team began organising it in 2012, with some 25% of drivers coming from outside of Italy.
