At the time, little was recorded about the activities of Alfa Romeo's World Championshipvwinning Sports Racing car, the Tipo 33. The model had a long career, as a factory car as well as in private hands from 1967 until 1977. Great Italian motorsport engineer Carlo Chiti designed and ran a prolific number of different models of the Tipo. Unfortunately, nothing of the history of these developments was documented at the time, but the author has managed, after intense investigation and numerous personal interviews, to uncover much about this marvelous sports prototype.
