Fiat’s 500 Abarth arrived in North American showrooms in the spring, and will soon be joined by the Abarth Cabrio which makes its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.

And with the Formula One circus in town for this weekend’s Austin Grand Prix, Scuderia Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa managed to spare a few hours to film some on-track shenanigans in the diminutive little hatch at a private track near Austin, Texas.

The first part of the resulting video is shown above, with the rest presumably due for release at the LA Auto Show which begins on 30th November.

There’s no word (yet) on whether Felipe was asked to ‘move over’ during the action, nor if the white Abarth 500 was quicker than the black one.
