Ci piace molto ascoltare i vostri pareri e commenti su ciò che abbiamo costruito e su fotografie ed immagini del nostro sito.
Credetemi, mi fa molto piacere che vi piaccia la mia avventura in Autodelta, una storia di tanti anni fa...e crediamo che alcuni di voi vorrebbero avere più materiale a disposizione.
Ma, almeno per il momento, possiamo offrirvi solo il nostro lavoro su Internet.
Il nostro fine è quello di diffondere storie e tradizioni senza scopo di lucro.
Nel 2015 due amici, appassionati del “vecchio” Marchio AlfaRomeo, si sono uniti a me per tradurre in italiano ed in tedesco il sito “Autodelta Golden Years”: Renzo Carbonaro ed Ulrich Zensen.
Sempre nel 2015, anche l'amico Vladimir Pajevic (bravo artista Serbo che da anni vive e lavora in Italia, e da anni naturalizzato Italiano) ha notevolmente contribuito con uno studio molto approfondito sulla nascita ed evoluzione della T-33 da corsa e sulla nascita della stupenda “dreamcar” 33 Stradale nata per la tenacia di tre uomini: Giuseppe Luraghi (Presidente Alfa Romeo), Carlo Chiti (Direttore Generale Autodelta) e Francesco Scaglione (Designer e creatore della 33 Stradale). Vladimir ci ha anche regalato un'immagine privata del suo amico Carlo Chiti e delle sue qualità umane.
Inoltre, Michael Keyser, pilota di Endurance e Produttore Cinemaografico, ci ha concesso di riprodurre nel nostro sito alcune parti del suo emozionantissimo video “The Speed Merchants”
Nel corso del 2016 abbiamo avuto il piacere di dare il benvenuto, nel nostro sito, ad un nuovo co-redattore, Claudy Schmitz, con il suo apporto di circa 40 anni di ricerche storiche sull'Alfa Romeo e grande collezionista di modellini di auto, sempre Alfa Romeo.
Il nostro sito è interamente autofinanziato e non offriamo in vendita libri, riviste, CD o DVD od altro materiale per scopo di lucro.
Saremmo molto contenti di ricevere, da parte vostra, domande, commenti, ricordi o suggerimenti, utilizzando il pulsante “Guestbook” sottoriportato.
E' veramente con sincero piacere che desideriamo condividere la storia di Autodelta e di Carlo Chiti con tutti gli appassionati del marchio Alfa Romeo.
Venite a trovarci spesso, perchè il nostro sito è in aggiornamento continuo, sempre, con nuovo materiale offerto da amici che desiderano condividere con tutti noi storie ed avvenimenti riguardanti Autodelta.
Godetevi gratuitamente il nostro sito, ogni giorno e grazie ad internet, ovunque voi siate.
E grazie mille per essere, come noi, appassionati della storia di Autodelta.
“La realta' AlfaRomeo nelle corse
“Scuderia Inside the Walls” Team
We truly appreciate hearing from those such as you who are emotionally affected by what we have crafted from our own memories and photographic images. Believe me, we are pleased that you enjoy my Autodelta story..albeit a four decade old story…and we know that some of you are interested in having a more 'durable' copy of it. At the present time, however, we have no plans to offer this information in any other source than the Internet. Our only goal is to propagate this history and tradition and we choose not to profit while doing so. As the year 2015 drew to a close two outstanding and dedicated Alfa Romeo enthusiasts came forward to join the team ...Renzo Carbonaro and Ulrich Zensen...and both put forth a gargantuan effort to translate the site into Italian and German. And Vladimir Pajevic, the author of a new book on the history of the GTA cars contributed the most historically accurate and true inside story of the birth of the T-33 and of the Stradale cars....and a stunning review of his friend Carlo Chiti from the purely human standpoint... ....and to top that off, world class endurance racer and movie producer Michael Keyser gave "Inside the Walls" permission to provide our visitors with Alfa Romeo racing video segments from his epic movie "The Speed Merchants". We have yet to incorporate all of his footage into our site, however. In late 2016 we were privileged to welcome a new Contributing Editor with 40 years of Alfa Romeo Autodelta study and experience as a collector and historian, Claudy Schmitz. The site hosting package is paid up for the next ten years and it is our goal to have the site funded in ‘perpetuity’! There is no one out there who is telling the Autodelta story to a wide audience without requiring you to buy a book, a magazine, a CD or a DVD. Please feel free to submit your questions, comments, remembrances and suggestions to us using the "Guestbook" button below. It has been our sincere pleasure to share the Autodelta and Carlo Chiti history with all of you around the Alfa world.
Please stop back often as we update the site with new and even more interesting materials coming from interesting people who wish to share their part of the Autodelta history with all of us.....
Enjoy the non-commercial use of our site free of charge every day! Anywhere in the world.
And thank you for being an Autodelta enthusiast.

Wir freuen uns über Meldungen, wenn Ihnen die von uns aufgezeichneten Erinnerun gengefallen haben.
Wir wissen, dass einige Leser an einer gedruckten Version der Autodelta Geschichte interessiert sind.
Es gibt derzeit keine Überlegungen, die "Inside the Walls" Story in anderer Form als hier im Internet zu präsentieren.
Unser Ziel ist es, die Geschichte Autodeltas zu erzählen und in Erinnerung zu halten, dabei wollen wir keinen Gewinn erzielen.
Im Laufe des Jahres 2015 schlossen sich die begeisterten Alfa Romeo Enthusiasten Renzo Carbonaro und Ulrich Zensen dem Team an und stellten sich der gewaltigen Aufgabe, diese Website in die italienische und deutsche Sprache zu übersetzen.
Vladimir Pajevic Beitrag ist die historisch korrekte Darstellung der Entstehung des
T-33 Rennwagens und der Stradale Versionen und ein begeisternder Bericht über
seinen Freund Carlo Chiti aus rein persönlicher Sicht.
On Top können wir seit diesem Jahr bewegte Autodelta Bilder aus dem Rennjahr 1972 präsentieren. Michael Keyser, Rennfahrer und Filmproduzent, hat "Inside the Walls" die Erlaubnis gegeben, Ausschnitte aus seinem berühmten Film "The Speed Merchants" zu zeigen.
Noch haben wir es nicht geschafft, alle Szenen in die Seite einzufügen.
Seit Ende des Jahres 2016 ist Claudy Schmitz im Team, seit 40 Jahren ein Alfa Romeo und Autodelta Enthusiast, Sammler und Historiker.
Diese Internet Site ist für die nächsten 10 Jahre finanziert, unser Ziel ist es, die Site auf Dauer sicher zu stellen
Niemand sonst erzählt die Geschichte Autodeltas einem größeren Publikum, ohne hierfür ein Buch, ein Magazin, eine CD oder DVD zu verkaufen.
Fragen, Kommentare, Erinnerungen und Vorschläge können über das "Guestbook" Logo eingestellt werden.
Es ist uns eine Freude, die Autodelta und Carlo Chiti Historie mit Ihnen allen zu teilen.
Schauen Sie öfter wieder herein, wir werden Updates mit neuem und interessantem Material ergänzen.
Viel Spaß mit dieser nicht kommerziellen Site! Überall auf der Welt.
Und Danke dafür, dass Sie ein Autodelta Enthusiast sind.

Your account of your time at Autodelta and a very special insight into it's workings is simply "fantastico"! I have saved the pages (can't remember when I did that previously with any others) and will read and re-read them. Thank you very much.
Les Singh, Wellington, New Zealand
Robert, thank you so much for sharing your Autodelta experience. I am really looking forward to the installments.
Eric, thanks for the reminder.
Bob, I read everything on your website last night! Any way to make the print bigger? My eyes were feeling the strain. You had the job that so many of us would wish we could have working in a kind of a "skunk works" developing some of the most famous races cars in history. I was fascinated to read about the racing developments of Ing. Chiti. Wasn't there a Brabham that he was involved with that used a fan as a way of creating down force, and could the be attributed to his genius creativity?

Marvelous - I'm sorry that I missed out on experiencing that era. Your work helps make up for that void.
Anonomous: Oh my god Robert, had to click and scan through the site…was about to go to bed but had to read just a little J
It’s just amazing to see those pictures and you can almost smell the petrol and oil and it’s just as you can (but not) reach out and touch the cars and touch the “atmosphere” in the garage…
What a treat to sleep in that trailer, absolutely fantastic picture, love it! And of course as a Swede it also “hit” me when I saw the picture of Jo Bonnier…
Will be interesting to see how next part can be better than this first part! J But I guess you have a couple of aces up your sleeve…
I just wanted to say how wonderful your first Autodelta article is... A real treasure trove, I wait with much anticipation for the next instalment. Thank you so much for making this information publicly available.
Just my many thanks for sharing photos (in colour) from a golden era in my opinion! I am so interested to see the next set of photos since they are just excellent so far!
name: Giovanni Gracci email: Home Page: City: State: Country: comments: I was only 7 years old in '72 but your photos bring back memories of time spent with my Papa at the races and the time we had at home playing with AFX slot cars of the same racing class! Keep up the good work

Hello Mr. Little,
Superb, your second part. We could really imagine the "ambiance" in the workshop of Settimo
As the owner of a fully restored 74 GTV,the last one imported into the US,I appreciate you posting these very interesting photos. Thanks for posting these photos.
Just a quick note to say how delighted I am to read your notes on this great man. I appreciate you making these memories available to all of us Alfisti.
I am happy witnessing the success of the Autodelta story. To be honest, I am not surprised too much as it is a beautifully composed piece indeed!
name: Alex Lynn email: firstname.lastname@example.org Home Page: City: Perth State: WA Country: Australia comments: My brother directed me to this site. The photos are fantastic and so is your story. Thank you for sharing! I managed to visit Museo Storico Alfa Romeo back in 2010, and was lucky enough to not get caught venturing into barricaded areas hiding all sorts of machines. I'm sure I would have seen a few cars and engines right from the AutoDelta shop. Cheers. time: 2014-03-18 01:05:14
Let me introduce myself: I am an Alfa Romeo enthusiast from Budapest / Hungary, and all I wanted to say is ... thank you VERY much for your insider series on Autodelta!
I can only congratulate to both textual and photographic material you are sharing with us, and I can only express and transmit a million thanks also from my colleague whom with we own together a small workshop specialized on Alfa restorations . I also have to admit that we envy you quite much for being the lucky one that you could be part of the show ...
I always wanted to make a time machine so I could talk to Mr Chiti in person as I always thought he must have been a great person, and special thanks goes to you also for the part where you remember about him !
Some words on us: besides making project cars and restoring customer's cars, we also have our own "loved ones", a black Montreal and a black Alfetta (if you have some time and visit our page, you'll find some nice pics I hope).
We were in Monza last year in September at the celebration of Autodelta's 50th anniversary, and I still hear engine roar and smell as I read your lines, which are nicely extending the experience now.
Thank you very much, and eagerly waiting for the 3rd part!
Wishing best regards and good health

Thank you for all important and fantastic information, about one " Sant Graal " Alfisti, after II WW, the Autodelta and Carlo Chiti. grazie ! Viva Alfa Romeo !
I've really been enjoying your "Inside the Walls" series. Thanks for sharing it with us. There is something about the late '60s/early '70s that seems magical. I sometimes wonder if that might not have been the golden age for sports and racing cars. I'm an aerodynamicist, and I got especially excited when I saw the picture of the model shop with the wind tunnel models. I'm curious, did you get any pictures of the wind tunnel?
Dear Mr. Little,
I enjoyed very much your series of photos inside Autodelta. I am fascinated by the inner workings of most race shops and organizations but Autodelta holds a special interest for me. I own and vintage race a 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce and have been an Alfa fan since the 70's.
You are very fortunate to have been able to turn your passion into a career. I envy your experiences with the team and like to fantasize that under different circumstances I would have done the same.
Knowing and working for Carlo Chiti must have been an enlightening experience. Interesting to note that most great things are accomplished by singular great men.
I look forward to your next series of photos.

"Inside the Walls" is so relevant to me personally: I visited them in 1978 in order to buy some cams for my Alfetta GTV2000, I entered the gate where those guys were sitting for a group portrait (shown in Part One), and saw nothing but walls everywhere. All technical activity was shielded by internal walls. I finally talked to their chief technician in an office. I would have loved to have a tour on their premises, but not to happen! Today factories have a very different approach to public relations!

And I just wanted to tell you what a great story this has become. I found the first part rich on facts and details, and now this last chapter, where you take us through the Targa Florio race in 1972, both exciting and humorous. You are a great storyteller, Robert, and on behalf of all the Alfisti in Norway, I would take this opportunity to thank you so much for your fantastic contribution to our magazine. I hope you will enjoy our interpretation of your story, when you receive your copy of the magazine towards the end of June.

I came across your web site today by chance and was very pleasently surpised! Great photos and history about your time with Autodelta. I have been to Settimo many times as I live not far away and have visited the Alfa Romeo archives a number of times recently too as part of my research into the Trofeo Alfasud race series for writing a book. I went to visit "Dorino" Zeccoli a few weeks ago as well - great guy even at 85 years of age!
Any information would be very helpful. Complimenti again for what you have made public.
Ciao! I am a devoted Alfista from Sydney, Australia, and amazed at your beautiful pictures of life inside the walls of the hallowed Autodelta. I have dreamed of such pictures and only just tonight seen them for the first time. Bellissima! I wonder is it possible to buy print copies of these pictures?! I would love to hear from you! Kind Regards, Jonathan
Read all this and remember the great days of Motor racing....This will never come back and let us give those who died for the love of the sport a few minutes of our thoughts. Thank you for sharing this Robert Little!

I'm running an engine design&development Company and also the CR&S speciality motorbike company here in Settimo Milanese, via Galvani, 200 meters from the corner of the Autodelta building. Every time I drive from via Fermi my thoughts go to the Chiti's engines vailing in the test cells inside Autodelta. With collegues and friends we will try to get the old Autodelta factory and to have again engines built there in the tradition of such a glorious heritage....if we will be successful we will certainly be in touch with you. For now, thanks again for the beautiful and moving story..... "SOME" Italians (certainly not living in Turin)DO NOT forget their past!!!! time: 2014-10-08 13:00:22
It is an honor for me to know that a story like Autodelta, which still interests many people, have people like you who try to do not forget.
I am Argentine, but, i live in Milano since over 20 years and, maybe as you know, the history of Alfa Romeo is always connected to the two countries and especially very strong in Milano. Sincer a long time i follow racing and classic car events and, every so often I write for a Argentine blog called Retrovisiones, created by true lovers of the “Biscione”, while some of them have been involved with the MM with cars of the “ Museo Storico”. I hope you have more things to tell of the fabulous Autodelta years and the great hope that we are in Brescia next year.

What an enjoyable trip to one of the most fascinating sagas of motor sport history! May I point out one correction, though? In the middle of section T33 Historic Chronology there's a car (#19) with subtitle "Daytona" Coupe 1968. This is actually the unique 1969 3-litre coupe, which was only ever seen in two events: Enna and Hockenheim in the summer of 1969. time: 2015-01-16 03:26:32

Thanks for this AMAZING site, I was very young but I still remember attending in person my first races in Monza, 1971 and Targa Florio, 1972, when I was 7 yo and 8 yo. From that point on I remember vividly that fantastic period for Alfa, for my Dad, and for myself, up to last Autodelta F1 in 1982. I've got a lot of pics myself so I'm probably building soon a similar website which I'd greatly appreciate you to visit of course! Please continue sharing yours in the meantime! Fabio

Bob, My compliments to you for a job well done through your writing and photography. You really captured the mood of Autodelta's inner workings by knowing and working with the people. What an experience you had working with that team of highly talented people under the leadership of Carlo Chiti! Although you and I worked together at ALFA Romeo Inc. for years, along with my boss, Don Black, the head of the U.S.Engineering Office,(where I worked during the first 6 of my 13 years at ARI) and knew you had spent time in Italy working at ALFA, 'I HAD NO IDEA'! Don's input and stories brought back some great memories of working there in Englewood Cliffs and I was constantly educated and inspired by the people around me at ARI, especially working with Don, as you obviously were at Autodelta! To this day when people ask me why I chose an ALFA powerplant for my hot rod project, the answer is obvious! Keep up the good work, thanks and best regards!! Hank time: 2015-03-05 14:05:49

name: Pieter-Jan van Zanten email: email@example.com Home Page: City: Zwolle State: Country: the Netherlands comments:Hi Robert, Great compliments and many thanks for sharing the unique information and pictures about Autodelta. Since Autodelta is one of the highlights in history of Alfa Romeo it is important to build, share and preserve as muct as possibble facts for the future. On this topic it would also be interesting to gather facts about Autodelta in rally and touring car aces with the Alfetta GTV and Giulietta 2.0 Turbodelta (as pa roud owner of the last mentioned). However this part of the history was not so succesfull but nevertheless part of it. I am of course willing to contribute!
name: Derek Woods email: firstname.lastname@example.org Home Page: Facebook City: Christchurch State: Canterbury Country: New Zealand comments: Thanks for the wonderful memories an excellent insight into a great Team. I aways have had an interest in Autodelta and in their sportscar racing team and followed many of their drivers careers and still rate the T33 and all its derivatives as my favourite racing Sports car of all time. Still remember those three wins in 1971 at Brands Hatch the Targa Florio and at Watkins Glen very well as among my favourtes. I have a number of books and many models in 1/43 and 1/18 of their racing machines from the very start right up to the 1975 World Sportscar Championship winner and most of the F1 models also including a built 1/12 Protar type 159 of Mario Andretti from 1981. Will check back for updates from time to time Thanks. time: 2015-07-02 13:32:21

at Watkins Glen. Wow. Just fantastic. Wanted to thank you again for preserving and
sharing all of this. Everyone who was ever a little piece of something huge should be
blessed to have their contributions memorialized as you have done for the people of AutoDelta. -Curtis Wood time: 2015-08-05 15:07:11
Again it was such a pleasure to meet you and attend your presentation at Alfas at the Glen. Your relating the lives of the people and challenges of AutoDelta kept my wife Joanne, who is bored by talk of just mechanical things interested.Seeing the photos and in particular your description of the 33 blasting through the little village, prior on the website, and then again at Watkins Glen Grand Prix Circuit, I just can't think of anything else. Is it possible that this image could be made into a mountable poster and include your description of the sight and sound? I would sign up to purchase one if available. Or for that matter have one produced for just myself? Or several to benefit your trust, or a charity?
I respect your selfless approach immensely but can't help but think that making a few of the images available in such a way would actually further your cause.
Keep up the great work,

Carlo Chiti e a tutti gli uomini dell'Autodelta. Io all'epoca ero solo un giovane appassionato che non aveva seguito la moda nazionale di essere un tifoso della Ferrari scegliendo per passione le vostre Alfa. S? condivido il termine 'nuovo rinascimento italiano' perch? le vetture Alfa che uscirono in quegli anni erano bellissime e considero la 33TT12 (nella sua forma originale del 1973, quella della sfortunata esperienza alla Targa Florio) la pi? bella vettura da corsa mai costruita. Grazie per i ricordi e le emozioni che ci ha fatto rivivere con le belle e inedite foto!

Dear Robert Little and "Scuderia Inside the Walls“ team !
As an owner of a AR Tipo 33/2 Daytona I was reading with great interest through your very exciting and informative "Autodelta Golden Years" History site.
It will be 50 years in 2018 that three of the Tipo 33/2 won the 2 litre class in Le Mans and I would like to bring back the car to Les Mans for this anniversary. Currently the car is fitted with the regular short tail but obviously it will be much more attractive to fit the car with a long tail for this purpose.
First off I must say what a superb website full of excellent information you have. Was certainly very interesting to read through. I wonder if you may be able to help me. I am gaining information regarding Alfa Romeos t33/3 engine. I will be rebuilding one and any information or pictures about the engine would be perfect.
Even if contact can be made between myself and some of the original engineers that worked on the cars/engine would be lovely. I look forward to hear from you Thanks
