1993 championship was FIA class 2 - only, with a privateer cup added.
There were works supported cars from Peugeot, Alfa Romeo and BMW
(Bigazzi, Euroteam and CiBiEmme) and a number of privateers which made
a grid of about 20 cars. Not as big as the UK, but a serious
championship anyway. Alfa Romeo made an effort to develop a class 2
car; it took a little time to get going but there were race wins,
though it was not enough for the championship; that title was decided
between Peugeot (Giovanardi) and Ravaglia (BMW) where the latter won
the title with 7 points in hand.
The story of the year however were two women: Tamara Vidali surprised many, fresh from the Group N to Class 2; she had a number of podiums and a pole as well as a fiery accident, while Amato Ferrari with her Peugeot won the privateer title but finished in the top-6 overall many times, with a podium as the icing on the cake.
