The 4za Motorsport Grand Prix of Europe South was the first Event, comprising of Rounds 1, 2 and 3, of the 4za Motorsport Championship. It was held on Wednesday 2nd November 2011 at 3 circuits in the Mediterranean - Circuit de Catalunya's School Circuit, Camino Viejo de Montserrat's Short Circuit, and the reverse Rally di Positano (previously known as the Amalfi Coast) Circuit.

The Event saw the first qualifying session of an official Really Rubbish Racing Forza season, and pole position at the Circuit de Catalunya was taken by RRRTCC Independent Trophy Champion Dan 7horn in his Citroen C1. The first round was won by Season 1 Champion Rumbly Lizard, who also took fastest lap in the process. In his first race wearing the coverted number 1, RRRTCC Drivers' Champion FlavouryRug could only manage 4th when the chequered flag dropped.

The second round saw the drivers move to the Camino Viejo de Montserrat short circuit, and two reserves joined the 14 drivers from the first race to see Really Rubbish Racing's first full grid of 16 cars. Bookoi took his first win of the season in a close battle at the front with Dan 7horn (who set fastest lap in the process) and Tomcheesey. It was noted by several of the drivers how well everyone, especially the rookie drivers, conducted themselves during this race on what is a very narrow circuit with some difficult corners. General driving etiquette was at a high standard all round.

The third and final Round of the Event was held on the reverse (anti-clockwise) layout of the Rally di Positano (Amalfi Coast) circuit. Once against 16 cars took to the grid on the narrow and twisty street circuit. Many incidents were seen throughout the race and all through the field. Tomcheesey, Sodamn Insane 6 (aka Shouty), and Dan 7horn took the three podium positions, well ahead of the rest of the pack. Once again, Dan 7horn scored the fastest lap.

A string of three podiums and the pole position for the first race gives Dan 7horn a surprise early lead in the Drivers' Championship with 40 points, 6 points ahead of Tomcheesey in second place. Sodamn Insane 6 rounds out the top 3 a point behind with 33. Bazskating took an early lead in the Rookie Cup, being the only rookie to score any points, and in all three races to boot. With a strong turnout, Ford placed themselves at the top of the Master of Marques table thanks to the efforts of JemTech Racing, Concordskii Motorфлот, and Drive Angry.
