 Recommended Car
The opposition consists mainly of Alfa Romeo's with a handful of Fiat's and Lancia's thrown in for good measure. The Italian prize cars up until this point are not good enough for this event, so whilst you could go and purchase one of the more powerful Alfa's, a better choice would be to buy a Ferrari, which can then be used again for a future series.
The Ferrari 512BB '76 will breeze through this event, and with some tuning will also be good for the Supercar Nostalgia event and well tuned it can easily take down the Ferrari event (La Festa Cavallino). It's available from the Ferrari Dealerships from Level 8 onwards - the same level as this event.
For those that have raced ahead with other modes and have reached Level 13, the Ferrari 458 Italia '09 is another option, as it will also be good for the La Festa Cavallino event and possibly the Gran Turismo World Championship in the professional series with some tuning.
The event consists of two individual races:

 Prize Cars
