Planet Alfa

So,

I've been cruising around the UAE believing that I'm pretty much the only Alfista in the region. The only guy here who gets/understands the passion of the car I drive. I don't do BookyFace, but my wife noticed a group called "Planet Alfa" that had already organized a drive or three. Imagine my disgust when I discovered that it was run from the dealership! I was bitterly disappointed that no one even considered contacting me.

So I drop the car off for it's 60k service, and go looking for the manager to give him a piece of my mind. He's fairly new there, and somehow my details had been lost. I give him a quick rundown of my adventure with Alfa (from age 20 onwards), and reminded him that not only was my 4C the first in the UAE, but that it was the only one for almost a month.

Long story short - I've now met a bunch of true Alfisti. Great guys, with a wide range of Alfa's (even a couple that I had no idea were in the UAE). The next drive will be sometime after Ramadan, and if you guys indulge me, I'll put some pics from the drive here, once it's happened (there are at least 3 4C's in the group)

Great to know Alfisti exist everywhere.

Looking forward for some great scenic 4C shots.

We had an 8C Spider join us (so I focused on her engine sound), and one of the regular guys brought his recently restored BMW 2002.

Loving the high-tech reverse sensors on some of those cars... when the wheel hits the curb behind you, it's time to shift into "1".
Not just one car - THREE in a row!!!

And at the end of the intro, when the drone footage was playing in reverse and the car backs up around the roundabout???
