Slot.It SICA11g Alfa Romeo 33/3 #2 'Andrea de Adamich - Gijs van Lennep' 2nd pl Targa Florio 1971, 1/32nd scale slot car.
The Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Sport Prototype was designed in the mid 1960s to race in the World Sports Car Championship. Eventually it succeeded and won the Manufacturers' Championship in 1975, and again in 1977. Designed by Carlo Chiti, a famous Italian engineer, the several variants of the car were raced by the Alfa factory and by many privateers as well. In 1971 it won three World Championship races: Brands Hatch, Watkins Glen, and Targa Florio.
In the same year the T33/3 cars featured a monocoque chassis, panelled in alluminum and magnesium, a 2998 cc engine, and a 6 or 5 speed sequential gearbox. Top speed reached 330 km/h, at Le Mans with long tail. In 1971, the most important victory for Alfa Romeo was the Targa Florio race, where two T33/3's finished first and second. The race was won by Nino Vaccarella and Toine Hezemans driving car #5, followed by car #2 driven by Andrea de Adamich and Gijs van Lennep.
