  • 5 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti - Markku Alén 1995

  CA40b Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti #27 - Markku Alén, Helsinki ITC 1995. Available Oct/Nov. RRP £62.95.

Available very soon is another eye-catching livery on the Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti - this time rally legend Markku Alén's McDonald's-sponsored car from the 1995 International Touring Car Championship double-header in Helsinki...


DTM stretched their legs in 1995, twelve German-based events (twenty-four races) under the usual Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft title and a further five European events (ten races) in Italy, Finland, Britain, Portugal and France as the International Touring Car Championship. Although the two championships were separate, it was the same cars, teams and drivers that took part - Bernd Schneider winning both drivers titles and Mercedes winning both manufacturers' awards.


Alén drove the factory-entered Alfa at the DTM season-opener at Hockenheim, retiring from the first race and finishing the second race just outside the points, in eleventh. The ITC race on home turf was marginally more successful - thirteenth in the first race and tenth place in race two, scoring one championship point. That was it for Alén's brief taste of top-flight touring car action - he would continue to enjoy his post-WRC career with some European ice racing and two attempts at the Dakar Rally. He made one return to the WRC, taking part in Rally Finland in 2001 to celebrate his fiftieth birthday. He finished sixteenth in a privateer Ford Focus.

Underneath the fabulous livery, the Alfa features the previously-updated body and chassis mould, plus the usual DTM 21k S-Can motor in a 0.5mm offset inline motor pod. The new JST connectors make it easy to convert the car to digital. Both plastic front and rear aluminium wheels are 15.8x8 mm, fitted with the correct wheel inserts and C1 compound tyres.

The car is available as a pre-order now from Pendle Slot Racing and MRE.
