Nothing Beats Racing a Vintage Alfa Romeo in Mexico

Life is short. Take full advantage of it.

Conrad Stevenson has an awesome outlook on life. He challenges himself to race old Alfa Romeos as often as possible. What’s more is that he also builds them, and he’s been doing both since he was just 15. So where does he race his Alfas? In Mexico, specifically at the La Carrera Panamericana. After taking part in the event for the first time in 2001 in a friend’s Studebaker, Stevenson wanted to race a car of his own. That turned out to be a fully rebuilt 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale.

He has no interest in showing the car at Concours events; it’s solely meant for racing and pure driving enjoyment. He admits that he’s "taken liberties with this style," specifically with its lowered nose that improves downforce. However, Stevenson also feels his Giulia SS stays true to what its original designer, Bertone, intended.
