    Default Great Web Page on Alpines

    Found it when clicking on a picture of my A310 in its former life.

    Yep, Australia's only green A310 is mine.
    It gets out once a week, generally just the trip to work. Which is too short and lacks in good corners. Mr Alpine still needs a new coat of paint, but sounds terrific heading past 6k.

    Good to see one our own Aussies got involved. I've followed Ron Tauranac since I was a kid but didn't know he was involved with this.

    964 saw success in the single-seater field. With help from Brabham’s Ron Tauranac and shaping by Hubert, Alpine had entered the Formula 3 category and found their car carrying that year’s French Champion, a feat equalled in 1971 and 1972 and also surpassed in 1972 with the team’s European Championship.
