The first event of the Alfa Romeo Cup, presented by Velocity Esports Racing, took place on the Lago Maggiore (East layout) fictional track, using the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm ’20. Kane Mallia took the pole position, setting the fastest lap in the qualifying session. However, Jake Sammut, from third position, had an amazing start and took the lead on the first lap. But Ayrton Birmingham, who started in second place, was fast to take first place and build a large gap from the rest of the grid. In the last few minutes, Ayrton Birmingham lost some time while overlapping a backmarker, allowing Mallia to close the gap and fight for first place up until the last corner. In the end, Ayrton Birmingham managed to hold off Kane Mallia’s challenge and crossed the finish line first, taking the win and leading the championship. 

The Alfa Romeo GT Cup came to a thrilling conclusion at the historic Monza circuit with the Alfa Romeo 4C Gr.3. With the championship on the line, Ayrton Birmingham, starting from pole position, took the early lead in the race. However, Jake Sammut was quick to close the gap and made a bold move to overtake Birmingham. The two drivers engaged in a fierce battle, exchanging the lead multiple times. As the two leaders fought it out, Kane Mallia and Daniel Mallia started to close in, creating a four-way battle for the win. With the chequered flag in sight, Birmingham managed to pull away and cross the finish line first, winning the Alfa Romeo GT Cup.
