Campionato Italiano di Turismo Gruppo 2

1976 index

The Italian Touring Car Championship was already in trouble in 1975, and to make matters worse for 1976 the championship was divided into a Group 2 championship and a Group 5 championship. The predictable result was that both disappointed; few new cars, sometimes Finotto hired a Belgian BMW CSL but the bigger classes had small fields as usual. The most exciting car was the Alfetta GTV of Bigliazzi, who had a full European programme as well. It was not enough for the overall title however, that went to Chiapparini and his Alfa Romeo 1600 Junior. Bigliazzi finished second, Laganą third.
