Getting Started

The Trofeo Series is a “drivers run” series, providing friendly, competitive classic car racing while keeping costs to a realistic level.

Four classes of car compete in each race, catering for Alfa Romeo cars from relatively standard road going Alfas, through to fully modified racecars. Trofeo also welcomes Lancia, Fiat & Other Italian Marques - Membership is open to owners of Italian Marque vehicles by invitation, allocation to one of the classes will be made by the committee after considering the vehicle performance and specifications. Ask us for further details.

Each of our races is literally four races in one. Whether at the front or the rear of the grid, class points are at stake. While the competition may be keen, the Trofeo series is one of the friendliest and most sociable around. Advice and assistance for fellow competitors is never far away, and the social events are legendary. A typical season is contested over about 7 competitive rounds, at North Island tracks. Two points races for class championships; plus a handicap race for an overall handicap championship are contested at each round. 

This information has been written to help prospective new competitors to the series, and/or to motorsport. We hope that it will help clarify the rules and regulations governing racing, and perhaps answer a few of the questions that any new competitor will naturally need answering. If you do have any further questions, please ask one of the Trofeo Series committee, or any of the Trofeo Series competitors, we will be happy to help, or if we can’t, we’ll direct you to someone who can.
