Trofeo Series - Italian Marque Racing
The Trofeo Series is a group of Alfa Romeo, Fiat & Lancia drivers who get together each year to race the wheels off Italian race cars of varying ages & characteristics in a contest that is fun, friendly, competitive and relatively affordable. Initially the Series began as the Alfasud Trofeo Series, before expanding to accommodate other Alfa Romeo models, and more recently to include Invited Fiats, Lancias and other Italian marques.
The rules provide for classes to accommodate cars from a relatively standard specification, through to fully race prepared vehicles. The completion each Season (September to April/May) takes us to 6 - 8 rounds at the North Island tracks of Pukekohe, Hampton Downs, Taupo and Manfeild. The competition format is a mix of scratch and handicap racing for Class and Overall Series points.
Trofeo Series drivers can be summed up in one phrase Cuore Spotivo!

AGM & Prizegiving Overall Points Winner - Chris Hunkin
Congratulations to Chris Hunkin (Trofeo Class) who took out our ultimate award for Overall Points. This award is calculated on Class Points less Handicap points to acknowledge the Driver who has achieved the best result in both parts of the Trofeo competition.
Chris is a second-time winner of this award (he previously took out the top award in the 2013/2014 season) proving that if you race hard, and consistently that you can race a standard powered 8V boxer motored, road legal Alfa 33 to the top. Chris races hard and clean, and is a great example of what Trofeo Series is all about.
We also congratulate our 2nd & 3rd place-getters Darron & Tina. It was great to see the honours spread over 3 of the 4 classes.
Overall Points (Class points less Handicap Points)
1st: Chris Hunkin (Trofeo Class)
