Since 1982, Alfa Romeo achieved 18 world records with a diesel engine on the track to Nardò in Puglia, Italy. The vehicle manufacturer aimed to demonstrate the effectiveness of diesel-engined cars in racing.
Over the past few years, Alfa Romeo has been successful in the European Formula 3 Championship. The manufacturer aimed to demonstrate the ability of diesel engines -with which the series cars are equipped- by organizing the speed challenge on the track. The Arese Cars average speed of 190km/h and are capable of reaching speeds up to 300km/h.
