During 2008 and 2009 the main Formula Azzurra category has been known as the Trofeo Alboreto. For 2010, Abarth have committed to a five-year initiative that will see the series being renamed Formula Abarth.
After the success of 2010 season, in which competed international drivers and teams, a new European series has been created with prize offered in collaboration with Ferrari Driver Academy.
Free practice sessions will be conducted on specific dates during weeks preceding the race.
The qualifying session lasts 30 minutes in a unique or multiple turn and decides the grid order for the first race which has a duration of 28 minutes + 1 lap.
The second race lasts 28 minutes + 1 lap and the grid is decided by the qualifying session with top 8 being reversed, so the driver who started 8th on 1st race will start from pole position and the pole sitter will start from 8th place.
