Direnza supported driver, James Ford, was in action for the Round 1 of the 2021 Alfa Romeo Championship. See how he got on below!
Here at Direnza, we are always looking to broaden our Motorsport involvement and when the opportunity arose to partner with race winner, James Ford, we couldn’t say no.
James competes in the popular Twinspark Cup Class, which permits any car fitted with Alfa Romeo’s 2000cc Twinspark Four Cylinder Engine. This includes the 145, 146, 147, 156, GTV and more!
In a class where regulations dictate only minor modifications, close racing is guaranteed week in, week out. With the first round of the championship held at the home of UK Motorsport, over the weekend of April 24th – 25th.
Qualifying & Race 1
James stuck his Alfa 156 on pole for race one and lead from start to finish in what was a very impressive show of speed and consistency. Securing him maximum possible points from the weekend so far.
Race 2 was much more competitive, with the top three battling for position throughout the 20 minute race. Eventually James lost out to his brother who secured the win with Andrew Bourke rounding out the podium positions.
James leaves round 1 leading the Twinspark Class by 4 points over brother, Richard and sits third overall with 39 points. Watch the full race below! https://alfaracer.com/
