At Daytona the cars finished 5th, 6th and 7th. At Daytona the young Mario Andretti raced for Alfa Romeo for the first time. The engines were updated for the Targa Florio on 5th May 1968. The car now had a 2.5 liter V8. The short versions were used in this race and finished 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th. The 33/2 in the lead crashed just 14 km before the finish line.
