On June 11, 1933 –the same day of the French Grand Prix– Trossi in a Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo 8C-2600 MM won the Florence Circuit Race for racecars. This minor national event lasted but two hours and led over a 140.1 km (30 x 4.670 km) distance. During the race, a crash happened where the Italian driver Albino Pratesi was injured. He died 10 days later on June 21, from injuries received in the crash.
24 cars were entered
10 finished the race
