Hot Italian Action With Abarth

Abarth UK have announced dates for each round of the new 2010 Trofeo Abarth 500 race series.

2010 Trofeo Abarth Assetto Corse

The one-make series is the British version of Europe’s highly successful International Trofeo Cup. 2009 was a very successful season for the championship and included some of the continent’s legendary circuits such as Valencia, Brno and Imola. Now the potent new 500 Assetto Corse race cars will feature at some of Britain’s best-known race circuits starting in April.

With 190bhp from the Abarth 500’s 1368cc 16-valve turbocharged engine and a weight of just 970kg the Assetto Corse race cars offer sparkling performance on the track, and because all of the cars are identical the championship promises some very close racing.

The calendar for the 2010 Trofeo Abarth 500 GB series is as follows:
