Alfa Romeo GTV6 Race Car

This was a huge project to rebuild a car originally prepared by Terry Drury Racing for the British Touring Car Chapionship in 1984.

Over the years it had been converted to race in various championships including Thunder Saloons. When the car was discovered its current owner had removed the roof and repanels ready to remodel the car.

Work carried out by CSR on this project included:

  • Roof and repanels reinstated to shell
  • Ground up restoration
  • Remake of panels to accomodate 16” x 13.5” wheels
  • Prepare for racing in the Alfa Romeo Championship
