As director of the newly minted Alfa Corsa, he had the full foundry and fabrication team at his disposal. He put together a new series of Tipo B (P3) engines, welded up some widened Tipo C GP chassis, they needed a second seat, slapped on some fenders, a couple of lights, some tools might be necessary, made some available to customers in bare chassis for the Carrozzeria to body, and called them sports cars. They were GP cars. And everyone knew it. The Mille Miglia in the late Thirties... for Alfa it was like O’Toole, Harris, and Burton on stage (or in the bars), everyone else was merely supporting cast.

    Just thought I'd mention that the paragraph and illustrations above are from my new book on Alfa from 1909 to 1941: http://www.gearshift.com/library/AlfaRomeoViewTheBook.html
