Spettacolo Sportivo Alfa Romeo - Netherlands

August 24th and 25th of this year the Dutch Alfa Romeo Owners Club SCARB organizes its club weekend at the racetrack of Zandvoort. The Spettacolo Sportivo Alfa Romeo is the largest annual Alfa Romeo event in Europe and sees visitors from all over the continent and even further away. The program for the weekend includes races, parades, track training sessions and much more.

100 years of Zagato

The main theme is the design and couch building company Zagato celebrating its 100th anniversary. In 1921 the first Zagato body on an Alfa Romeo chassis appeared: the G1 Lusso. Many other Zagato bodied Alfas followed, like for example the 6C 1750 from 1929, famous for its victories in many races as well as its sleek and elegant design. Spettacolo visitors will see a variety of Zagato creations; Alfa Romeos and other makes. Many of those cars are very rare or unique.

Record attempt

A 'Zagato' that can be spotted on the road a little more often is the Junior Z from 1969 and its sister model GT 1600 Z from 1972. These models are put into the limelight to celebrate their 50th anniversary. With the support of the SCARB's Junior Zagato Register and the Dutch Junior Zagato Archives, we aim to gather together as many cars as possible, during the Spettacolo.

Alfa Romeo launched the 145, successor of the 33, at the 1994 Turin Auto Show.
Its sister 146 appeared December of the same year and went into production in 1995. At the Spettacolo we celebrate their 25th anniversary.

More information

July 1st, 2019 we launch the updated website www.spettacolosportivo.eu. Ticket sales for the track sessions start the same day. For an impression of the 2018 Spettacolo see: www.alfaclub.nl/spettacolo-sportivo.

ABOUT CAFFEINE & CARBURETORS

Caffeine & Carburetors is a gathering of automotive enthusiasts. We meet at Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee in New Canaan, CT about 6 times year to enjoy our rides and share them with like-minded gear heads hiding in and around Connecticut and New York.

Doug Zumbach began hosting these gatherings in 1995. These Sundays start around 8 am to gather and enjoy a cup of coffee followed by a leisurely drive through the countryside.

Caffeine and Carburetors is a way to indulge the gear head in all of us.
