Donington Historic Festival to feature anniversary Maserati race

Published 30 January 2014

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Maserati, Motor Racing Legends and the Maserati Club UK are staging a historic Maserati race at this year’s Donington Historic Festival on 3-May.

Running as a double header over two of the Festival’s three days, the Maserati Centenary Trophy is for all types of Maseratis and OSCAs built before 1966. This means that the race will be open to all pre-’66 single-seaters and sports cars, including all pre-War cars and cars powered by Maserati or OSCA engines.

The Italian marque’s history in motorsport goes back to 1926 - 12 years after its foundation in 1914 - when Alfieri Maserati took his Tipo 26 to class victory in that year's Targa Florio. This would be followed in 1927 by Maserati winning the Italian constructors' title and Alfieri’s brother Ernesto taking the Italian drivers' title. In the subsequent decades, Maserati would drive into the motorsport history books with a series of iconic models and success in Grand Prix and sportscar racing, two Indy 500 wins and victory in the 1957 Formula One World Drivers’ Championship for Fangio in the 250F.

Donington Historic Festival founder Duncan Wiltshire said: 'This will be a fantastic race for spectators and drivers alike.  To see a dedicated grid of historic models such as the 8CM, 250F, A6GCS and 300S out on track is something Festival visitors will never forget. It is particularly pleasing that Motor Racing Legends is working with the oldest Maserati club in the world to commemorate the marque’s anniversary in this way. The Maserati Club UK’s knowledge is an invaluable resource in organising such an event.'

India has witnessed a boom in recent times. Land Cruiser has established itself in the luxury car segment and has an enviable reputation as a sturdy yet stylish car.
