he sixth Maserati Trofeo World Series confirms its standing as a truly global event. The race calendar will unfold across three continents and include three new circuits, taking the total since 2010 to twenty-five.

Maserati Racing Academy
The first date on the calendar, 21-22 March, will be before the official test session. That weekend will see the Maserati Racing Academy take place at Vallelunga (Italy) and is dedicated to training new drivers under the expert eye of professional instructors and drivers. Two separate classes based on the drivers’ ability are planned: beginners for those with no experience of competition and experienced for those with track know-how. At the end of the ‘course’, participants will have the chance to take the test that allows entry into the Trofeo World Series (FIA Internazionale C).

There will be a competitive edge to the Racing Academy with the two top drivers awarded the amazing chance to race, free of charge, at the season’s opening round (25-26 April at Paul Ricard). The two winners will share the drive of a Maserati and will enjoy the support of an instructor during the entire weekend.

Format
The main change this season will be to the race format with the tweaks made to level the playing field and make things as exciting as possible from the word go.
