Date Owner Location Remarks

Pre-1978 Bernardo Sa Nogueira Portugal Heavily modified for racing, including a 2 liter Nord engine with mechanical fuel injection, prepared by Jose Xavier Moreira.
Black with red stripes and round wheel arch extensions.
1978 Bernardo Sa Nogueira Portugal Raced at the Rampa de Pena event, 1978.
After having qualified first in class, Bernardo only managed a 3rd in class, 9th in Group B and 16th overall due to the engine running on 3 cylinders.

Post-1978
(Presumably 1984 ?)
Peter Crutch UK

Roberto Giordanelli recalls:

Peter Crutch purchased the car from (ed: or through) Jose Xavier Moreira.

Piero (ed: Pesaro) and I went to Calais with a trailer to collect the Zagato from Moreira.

The Zagato went straight to my workshop in Sunbury on Thames.

Peter Crutch gave me carte blanche to prepare the Zagato how I wished.

I drove it briefly on the road to get a feel for it.

I decided that the GTAm power unit was too peaky and would be unreliable for long-term use.

I delivered the GTAm engine to Piero’s workshop in Brentford, and together we built a conventional full race 2 litre twin cam engine.

Meanwhile in Sunbury on Thames, I totally stripped the Zagato and rebuilt it with different style body from that raced in Portugal.

Square wings arches (Porsche 944 style) instead of round arches, deep front spoiler and raised rear spoiler.

Car painted red with Italian tricolore on the roof.

I converted it from LHD to RHD for better weight distribution on UK’s right-hand turning circuits.

I also lightened the car considerably and fitted the new engine.

I alone raced it through 1985 and 1986, winning the Class A in the Alfa Romeo Championship and setting many lap records.

I also raced it in the Italian Intermarque series, winning many races.

1985 photos show some body roll, so for 1986 I fitted a stiffer front antiroll.

(see photo of Roberto posing on the car while on a trailer)

1987

Piero Pesaro

UK

Ownership was somehow transferred to Piero Pesaro who started racing the car.
The exact terms and conditions of this transfer of ownership have given rise to heated debates which are beyond the scope of this register and its website.
We will therefore refrain from comments on that transaction as it is not relevant to the history of the car.

1990

Piero Pesaro

UK

Raced the car at least once at Mallory Park 1990.
(See photo)

Post-1990

Piero Pesaro

UK Raced the car at various other occasions

The car was dismantled, the GTAm parts were sold and the carcass was transferred to Italy.
