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!

Trofeo Project Car 2017/18
From Trade Me to the Track - Entry Level motorsport couldn't get any easier - We'll show you how
A group of Trofeo Drivers got together and purchased this 156 in order to prepare it as a Series Project car. We will be taking you from purchase of the car, evaluating and undertaking the work required including safety items, assembling your personal race gear, getting your licence, coaching, with 'go to' help at each step.
Along the way we'll be documenting the costs and steps that we take. We want to show you how to get on track cost effectively, while identifying the real costs involved.
Updated blogs have been added!
Both the Alfa 156 and the Fiat Punto have been progressing over the past month.
The Alfa 156 Team have been on a shopping trip.
The Fiat Punto has had some TLC from Te Awamutu Auto Super Shoppe (Maurice Thomson Motors) and has been released to the wild.
Check out our Project Car Page and keep coming back to see the new blogs as we work on the Project.
