Chris Harris v Alfa Giulia Super

We like Chris Harris and we like Ford Falcons (see http://blacksteelies.com/2013/04/03/when-henry-went-rallying-falcon-sprint/) so we were happy to settle down and watch him roar around Spa in a lovely ’64 coupe (it’s not a ’63 Chris) on YouTube. Then came the bonus side-story of him pedalling a beautifully prepared Giulia Super and we were hooked.

Chris is famous for his fish-tailling antics in the world’s most glamourous machines. So imagine the joy in watching him achieve impossible angles in a cute little Alfa while scraping door handles with Lotus Cortinas and Mini Coopers – in fact don’t imagine, what it here: Retro Cool: Spa 6hrs in a Ford Falcon
