The Superturismo Costiera Amalfitana (English: Amalfi Coast SuperTourers), in the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) World Heritage site of the Amalfi Coast is the third event of the second season of Really Rubbish Racing competition.

The event takes place on the fictional Amalfi Coast street circuit, in the non fictional town of Positano in Salerno Province, Southern Italy. The layout follows the coastal road, through a tunnel and past the lighthouse, before turning sharply right and uphill into the town. The track then follows the tight and twisty streets before a downhill hairpin brings it back onto the coastal road to complete the lap.

The Amalfi Coast is a protected UNESCO World Heritage site along the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula, with the event being named for the organisation to draw attention to the landscape's cultural significance.

The two races were equalised at 20 laps per race in the days leading up to races. Some drivers feared the original length of the feature race, set to be 30 laps, would be too grueling and arduous for your average armchair sim racer to handle in one go. Fears were this could lead to heat exhaustion, blurred vision, auto-motive (rather than auto-erotic) asphyxiation, and ultimately death. So at their behest, the feature race was shortened by 10 laps (11.5 miles), and to compensate, the shorter feature race had 5 laps (5.75 miles) added to its distance.
