164 Celebrity Race

Post by Engine » Sun Mar 03, 2019 6:55 pm

I have been working on gathering information on the 164 Celebrity Race in 1988. There are some interesting stories to it and I have collected some image material. I have even been in contact with the owner of what may be the last surviving car that raced in the series; a white 164 (no 10) which is in the UK now. Other than that I have had some contacts with people involved with the series at the time and tried to get some material from the archives in Arese.

My plan is to make some articles about the 164 Celebrity Race series. At least one for the Dutch SCARB alfa club magazine and one for www.cinecars.eu.

Is there anyone who believes he/she has information or image material (or something else) I might not have or know about? Please send me a message here.
Also; I have some information that makes me believe a second Celebrity Race vehicle may have survived (a red one) and I suspect it is somewhere in Italy. Does anyone know?

Man, I'd love to see that article when it's done. Admittedly, I know next to nothing about the 164 Celebrity Race in 1988.

I found this amongst the 164 manuals I got hold of recently (see other thread). It is in Swedish, but it at least describes what the intention was with the race series - publicity.
