Alfa Romeo confirm potential Supercars entry
Alfa Romeo has confirmed that it is considering a Supercars entry to promote the new Giulia model.
“Would an Italian race car work in V8 Supercars? We will look at anything that will help advance the brand and has a good return on investment,” said Steve Zanlunghi, head of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia to motoring.com.au.
“We would have to put a business case together because it would have to provide a return on the investment. If it brings sales, we’ll do it.”
At the same time Zanlunghi cautioned that a Supercars entry would require approval by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles headquarters and with the high level of investment needed, it is not likely for Alfa Romeo to enter the championship before 2019.
