Distinguished Gentlemen Ride for a Cause in London (1 of 2)

Distinguished Gentlemen Ride for a Cause in London (1 of 2)

By Amy Shore / 1 Oct 2014 Read More

Walking up from London Bridge tube, it would have been rather impressive for me to have missed the hoards of motorcycles, engines purring, rolling into Borough Market. The underlying growl of over 600 motorcycles arriving could be heard over the usual sounds of the morning London traffic. I had to be careful not to catch myself on various handlebars sticking precariously out into the narrow-formed gangways.

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved cars. Thinking back, it seems completely natural. I have found pictures of me as a two-year old surrounded by my toy cars, sitting in front of the television, on which my dad was watching Formula One. And that is how it went, every Sunday, for years and years. I would also read his car magazines, go with him to events, and ride along in every classic he owned.

Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale is a Racing Statement

Revived in 1988, today’s Carrera Panamericana is still dangerous, fast, grueling, and addictive, as driver Conrad Stevenson can attest. Stevenson got his first taste of the race in a friend’s Studebaker in 2001. After a couple more years of participating in friends’ cars, Stevenson decided it was time to build a car of his own, in this case a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale.

As I headed towards the press center, the air was embroidered with a variety of smells from cooking bacon-breakfast rolls wafting from one of the many food vans to exhaust fumes from the Jaguar D-Types with mechanics swarming about. I hadn’t even seen any racing yet and I was already seriously excited about the weekend ahead of me.

It was fitting that the first prototype for the Sprint Speciale debuted in Torino in 1957. While the production version took another two years it was clearly influenced by the more production-aimed BAT 9. And while the BAT series was fantastic, almost like fantasy-sketches in appearance, they were successful in one place where the Sprint Speciale failed. One of a few failures, in fact...

When Huber arrived in Milan in December 1940, he could barely stutter in Italian. But upon examining Huber’s business card, designer Antonio Boggeri discovered that while the elegant card appeared to be printed it was actually meticulously hand-lettered and precisely spaced.
