Maser-packed grid wows at NEC Classic


Maserati Club UK stunned showgoers at the NEC Classic Motor Show from 12-14 November with eight breathtaking competition cars lined up on a grid, which included:

  • '48 4CLT/48

  • '56 200S

  • 250F

  • Sir Stirling Moss' '58 Osca FS372

  • GranTurismo MC Trofeo

With its members clad in smart Maserati overalls, the club was deservedly awarded Best Large Club Stand.

Show manager Andy Rouse said that attendance "looks set to at least match last year's 46,000 best over the three days."

FEV 1H, the most famous Mk1 Escort of them all, took pride of place on the World Cup Rally 40 stand, while across the aisle, the HSCC featured the UK's original competition 911, GVB 911D, which Vic Elford took to victory in the first televised rallycross event in '67.

Car of the Show went to Dutchman Kees Smit's '37 Tatra T77A, while the judges' Special Award was clinched by the '59 950S of former Turner apprentice Ken Robbins.

This year's show has been set for 11-13 November: visit
