Racing - Trofeo World Series 2013

Riccardo Ragazzi

Trofeo World Series 2013

The Trofeo Maserati World Series is an international mono-brand racing championship, dedicated to all drivers aiming to race in the GT class with a prestigious brand, with races to be held in Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.

A new race format awaits for the entrants, one that will raise the standards and make each round more exciting. For the 2013 season, there will be two 30-minute events and one lasting 50 minutes (with a compulsory pit stop and driver change for crewed cars). However, the real change will be the introduction of added time for the quickest drivers: the top five drivers in the weekend’s first two races (determined by totalling their times) will have to pit from 5 to 20 seconds longer, on top of their compulsory 45 seconds, during the endurance race.

The winner (or winners) of the Championship crown will be awarded an exclusive numbered and name-plated ‘Maserati 8CTF single speed’ bicycle. The bike derives from the Maserati 8CTF Limited Edition and has been produced by Montante Cicli in a limited run of 200 to celebrate Wilbur Shaw’s 1939 and 1940 wins in the Indianapolis 500 at the wheel of the Maserati 8CTF.

A unique motorsport experience for all racing customers and partners.

The Maserati Trofeo is a top-class series. The organisation is excellent, the atmosphere is great and the car is reliable; you couldn’t ask for more.

    RACE FORMAT

    All events of the Trofeo MC World Series 2013 are made of 3 races over the weekend. The two sprint races of 30’ are the prelude to the more challenging long race of 50’, where all drivers must observe a pit stop and driver’s change. An intensive race program of 240’ of total track time suitable for both, single or twin drivers, where the good combination of performance, strategy and consistency can make the difference.

    The racing weekend is made of three days, from Friday to Sunday.
