    Hi!

    Hope this thread don't break any of "the tobacco laws".....

    Ignited by the "Prettiest" race car ever - Opinions? thread, I decide to open this, dedicated to the Rothmans sponsored cars. I've been always hooked by these cars. I think there is no single racing car that looked ugly with this livery.

    My first contribution is the 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5 Group A, that french driver Ives Loubet drove to class victory in the fatal Corsica Rallye.

    Best regards,
    Alvaro

    A Rothmans 962 was at the HSR at Daytona International Spedway last year. It was breathtaking, what a joy to watch it.

    Yes, I've felt this car, for a while now, was the best looking race car ever, basically.

    If the car is an original "works car", is such a piece of racing history!!

    Henry Toivonen raced a Rorthmans Porsche 911 SC/RS in the 1984 WRC season.

    Best regards, Alvaro.

    BTW:
    I'm currently building a replica of the Alfa Romeo GTV6 in the first post.
    Replica to the last decal in the exterior, and replica in tech spect in the interior.
    Historic rally racing is the goal.
