This is one of the most interesting touring car books I have read in quite a while. The coverage given to the DTM and ST versions of the Alfa 155 are superb, in-depth looks at the seasons it competed in the DTM, 93-96 and the 2-litre series, including most famously, the BTCC campaign in 1994. The book is well written, and seems to have been almost meticulously fact-checked, not something that's always the case with publications in this genre sadly, I only found a couple of minor errors here and there and that's from someone who has an avid interest in Alfa Romeo touring cars. The only disappointment is the coverage of the 147, which carries on from its appearance in the title as being tacked on and something of an after-thought. Whilst I understand the author wanted to complete the history of Alfa Romeo in modern day touring car racing, it is by far the weakest section of the book. Thoroughly recommended though if you have an interest in Alfa Romeo and/or modernish touring car racing.
