Alpine A110 1600SC - 1971, Gr. 4
DE
Heute: Michael Splettstösser / Hartmut Papenbaum (D/D)
Diese Alpine A110 wurde von Michael (Speedy) Splettströsser im Jahr 1994 in Teilen als nicht fertiggestellte Restauration erworben und er komplettierte diese zu einer A110, wie sie in den Jahren 1971 gefahren wurde. Nur bei der Hinterachse verzichtet er auf die alte Pendelachse und baute die etwas modernere ein, die mit einem viel standfesteren Getriebe kombiniert wird und serienmäßig in den letzten A110 und in der A310 verwendet wurde.

Gestern: Ove Andersson/David Stone, Rallye Monte Carlo 1971
Alpine wollte endlich die Rallye Monte Carlo gewinnen und schickte gleich sechs A110 mit 155 PS starken 1600er-Motoren ins Gefecht. Da Porsche beschloss statt des drei Mal siegreichen Elfers den 914/6 zu schicken, hatte Alpine recht leichtes Spiel. Durch das schwierige Handling war der 914/6 nur auf Asphalt schnell genug, nicht aber auf Schnee. Und als auch Munari mit der Fulvia zurückfiel, gab es sogar einen Alpine-Doppelsieg mit Andersson vor Thérier. Die Erfolgsserie der kleinen blauen Flunder setzte sich das Jahr hindurch fort und sie gewann die Internationale Markenmeisterschaft 1971.

When Michael 'Speedy' Splettströsser bought this Alpine A110 back in 1994, it was only partly restored and not assembled. Splettströsser finished the job and turned this A110 into a replica of the works cars from 1971. The only differences are the rear axle where he did not go for the old swinging axle and which is combined with the gearbox used in the last A110 road cars and also in the A310.

Yesterday: Ove Andersson/David Stone, Monte Carlo Rally 1971
Alpine really wanted its first win in the Monte Carlo Rally and sent no less than six A110 works cars with 155 bhp 1,600 cc engines to the 'mother of all rallies'. In the end, the battle for victory turned out to be easier than expected because Porsche did not enter the 911 which had won the previous three years and came with the 914/6 instead. But the mid-engined sports car was too difficult to handle in the snow. Thus when Munari lost time in his Lancia Fulvia, Alpine even scored a 1-2 victory with Andersson ahead of Thérier. This proved to be a good omen for the rest of the season in the International Rally Championship for Makes where the team from Dieppe finally clinched the title.
