Alpine Story at Brussels


Until 4th September 2016 Alpine Story is the main Theme at the Autoworld Brussels Museum in Belgium. History of how the Alpine Story with Renault began but also a part of the motorsportshistory. Certainly the Le Mans history is interesting to watch. It all began with the Renault Gordini at the end of the forties and it really kicked off with the beautiful M63 project. Finally the project led tot he A442 Le Mans project. In 1978 Didier Pironi and Jean Pierre Jaussaud won with the A442 at Le Mans which meant the end of their sportscar era. But before Formula 1 they were heavily involved in Formula 3 as well.


One of the first Alpine Renault F3 cars is also to be found on display. It was driven in 1964 by Mauro Bianchi, the grandfather of deceased F1 driver Jules. The car on display was still on original Dunlops in contrary to some of the other cars which were on Avons, especially developed for Historic Racing.


Alain Serpaggi’s 1.6L F3 Formula 3 car is also on display. The car which prepared a great number of well known French junior drivers to a famous F1 or Endurance career. Also not to missed is Jean Ragnotti’s Alpine A310 in which he drove in the Alpine Cup F1 support races. But besides the racing cars a lot Alpine Renault production cars which were not always built in France but also in Belgium, Bulgaria and even Brasil. Rare cars not to be missed. North Americans on trips to Europe might not miss this piece of racing history when attending Brussels for business or on holiday. With the brand new Alpine Vision a new chapter will begin in the history of Alpine which has been separated from Renault just like Toyota with Lexus e.g. This car was only for a few days at Brussels.
