Title: Abarthisti to support the Trofeo Abarth 500 GB
Post by: AlexK on November 22, 2009, 10:55:00 pm
As some of you will have already gathered from the recent photos, Abarthisti will be supporting the Trofeo Abarth 500 GB (https://www.abarthforum.co.uk/motorsport-news/the-2010-trofeo-abarth-500-gb/) race series that starts in 2010.

The Abarthisti logo will be carried by at least one car in the series, the first of which is that belonging to the Vospers/Pulce team which took delivery of their car this weekend.

It's hoped that our involvement will lead to unprecedented access to the Trofeo series for all Abarthisti members, including ticket give-aways, pit-lane access, the chance to meet drivers and engineers, and more.

The race calendar is still to be confirmed, but we'll be sure to keep you guys updated whenever there's news.

For now, here's a couple of gratuitous shots of the Abarthisti logo.  This isn't the final livery - the cars are delivered in white from the factory, so this is just something put together quickly for the weekend.

THe race dates would be good so we can put dates in the diary well in advance and organise some convoy runs.

Agree with mia Oulton would be brilliant, all high profile race events, good for the brand.

Paddock Hill bend at Brands will be manic.

You have to have a special pass to get into the paddock / hospitality section.
Dont have prices on those tickets yet.

I thought I would stick up a map of the U.K. season so people can see where each one is and figure out which events you want to go to :thumb:
Obviously Monza is not on this list.
