The Maserati Trofeo Light is produced by the racing department at Modena, in collaboration with Italtecnica and is a development of the car used in the one-make series, which in turn is derived from the road-going Coupe Cambiocorsa.
The Maserati Trofeo<.strong>, made its world debut at the Paris Motor Show. In 2003, the Trofeo will be the centrepiece of a single-brand championship of seven races, run on the most prestigious circuits in Italy, Great Britain, Germany, France and Spain. Two events, in Italy and Britain, will be held in conjunction with the local Formula 1 Grand Prix, and four will be mini-endurance events, combined with the FIA GT Championship. The last race will be held with the traditional "Finali Ferrari" racing days.
