17/1/14 – Watch this space! As 2014 commences Avanti are starting two new Alfa Romeo Rally Cars. A GTV6 and a 75. Both cars will be built to Richards specs …. but with just a little bit more….. everything! Both cars are at the start of their respective builds but we will try to keep current pics of the cars on the site as they turn from road cars into competition monsters.
16/1/14 – Laurie and Mary Alice’s 33 Quattro in Cobar as part of it’s participation in the 2013 UAA Great Endeavour Rally. You might think that a 33 is an unusual choice for a “bash” car but its awesome finishing record has inspired a fleet of no fewer that 13 (yes you read that right!) Alfa 33 imitators to join them. They didn’t all finish but Laurie and Mary Alice did – Avanti prepared of course.
9/9/13 – “Slug” all packed up,hiking boots on, and ready to head out. If you are planing to head to the WRC this week – make sure you you stop bye and say hello.
27/8/13- Paul Young’s magnificent new 156 GTA race car in for a new timing belt and pre competition check over – keep your eyes peeled at local tracks for this weapon.
9/8/13 -”Slugs” Grp 2 engine buttoned up and ready to go back in with all the sensors for the new ignition installed. Dyno tuning on the way.
30/7/13 – Engine out as the refurb commences as part of preparation for the WRC in Coffs Harbour on the 12 – 15 of September. Slugs amazing group 2 motor will be getting a freshen up and a new ignition system for the event. Stay tuned for more photos and tech info.
23/7/13 – Preparations start this week for the upcoming WRC round in Coffs Harbour .

Stay tuned for pictures as we prepare this awesome car for the rally of the year.
