The debut of Alfa Romeo 155 seemed to be a good opportunity and its racing endeavor started in Italian Touring Championship where it won 17 out of 20 races in season 1992. Such encouraging results helped the decision of Alfa to enter 155 in DTM, which faced brand new regulations for season `93. The requirement of production-based V6 engine forced Audi and BMW out of the championship. The Germans were present just by Mercedes-Benz.
