Does anyone have an entry list? I am looking for identification of car #8 which looks to be a 6c2300 or 2500 Alfa (which?) and car #56, which is in the 750 or 1100cc class.

Thanks!

This question had me baffled,until I worked out you must mean the Targa Abruzzo sports car race.All I can find,even on the excellent WSPC site, is the first 3 places.

Yes, I meant the Targa Abruzzo sports car race. I would be interested in copies of entry lists for all the years, but especially 1938. All I can find is some overall first in class results.

Maybe we can move your question forward by offering more facts, in order to spike the interest of others to search for additional information. Further details should come from Italy, I presume. ...if available :rolleyes:

Thanks John!

One of the problems in researching Italian races is that most of the 750 and 1100 class cars are identified as Fiats, rather than by the names of the companies that did the elaboration on them, such as Siata and Stanguellini.

There are also few articles that coordinate the drivers names with the numbers of the cars they were in
