1.) Antoine Rotondi: - Antoine Rotondi had an Alfa Romeo garage in Villejuif, just south of Paris when you leave by Porte d'Italie. In the mid 60's, he was asked by an owner of a GTA, which was prepared by Conrero, to have a look on the engine, because it was not running well. After removing the engine, Rotondi found a number of peculiar things and tried to diagnose engine problems. He had then a contact with Virgilio Conrero, and visited him on several occasions and spend a lot of time with him (in fact several months) to learn how to prepare the racing Alfas. In fact, they became very good friends and the Garage Rotondi became the official Conrero importer for France. Rotondi, who is still alive, is a complex character and sometimes challenging to deal with. If he is in a good mood, everything is straightforward - if he is not in good humour - things can be hard work! Antoine Rotondi sold some time ago his own GTA and GTAm for an enormous sum of money!
2.) Gerard Patté: - A hairdresser from Paris, France
3.) Pierre Regnault: - A pork butcher trader on the National Center Market of Rungis, near Paris, France (Dep. 94)
1.) Patrick Depailler: - He raced for Antoine Rotondi in Gr.2 races, winning quite each event he was entering with 613.660. Later, he became a famous F1-driver.
2.) Jean-Claude Guenard: - Also a driver for Rotondi. Guenard later raced offshore power boats together with Didier Pironi. Both died in 1986 in a offshore race accident in Monaco.
3.) Gerard Advocat: ?
4.) Gerard Patté: - An amateur racer
