Maserati GranTurismo MC Trofeo

Hungaroring replaces Marrakech

Confirmation arrived on the eve of round one: Hungary will host the third stage of the championship, substituting Morocco.

The WTCC weekend planned for Marrakech on 5 June was cancelled after the organisers failed to put together the finance necessary to put on the event. As the Trofeo was also on the calendar for that weekend, a new circuit had to be found.

So, the Hungaroring will be the setting for the Trofeo Maserati on 4-5 June.

The track is not the only thing to have changed as the format has also been tweaked: the two races will be 40 minutes long rather than the ‘short format’ 30 minutes.
