50. Tazio Nuvolari

50. Tazio Nuvolari Alfa Romeo

The P3 was introduced in June, halfway through the 1932 Grand Prix season in Europe, winning its first race at the hands of Tazio Nuvolari and going on to 6 races that year driven by both Nuvolari and Rudolf Caracciola, including all 3 major Grand Prix in Italy, France and Germany. The 1933 Grand Prix season brought financial difficulties to Alfa Corse so the cars were simply locked away and Alfa attempted to rest on their laurels. Enzo Ferrari had to run his breakaway “works” Alfa team as Scuderia Ferrari, using the older, less effective Alfa Monzas. Alfa prevaricated until August and missed the first 25 events and only after much wrangling was the P3 finally handed over to Scuderia Ferrari. P3 then won six of the final 11 events of the season including the final 2 major Grand Prix in Italy and Spain. The regulations for the 1934 Grand Prix season brought larger bodywork requirements so to counteract this the engine was bored out to 2.9 litres. Louis Chiron won the French Grand Prix at Montlhery, whilst the German Silver Arrows dominated the other four rounds of the European Championship. However the P 3 s won 18 of all the 35 Grand Prix held troughout Europe.
