Maserati only race planned for Donington Historic Festival

| 12 Feb 2014

An entire grid of mouthwatering Maseratis is to be the star attraction at the Donington Historic Festival in 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 and the grid is being assembled by Motor Racing Legends and the Maserati Club UK. 

Spectators can expect to see a huge variety of racing machinery competing, including pre-’66 single-seaters and sports cars, pre-WW2 cars and racers powered by Maserati or OSCA engines.

Many cars of the type that have notched up the Modena marque's most famous victories – including a brace of Indy 500 wins and, if course, the F1 Drivers' Championship with Fangio – will be represented such as 8CM, 250F, A6GCS and 300S.

Michael O'Shea, Racing Co-Ordinator for the Maserati Club UK, said: “The Maserati Centenary Trophy is the realisation of the Maserati Club UK’s ambition to hold such a special race in Britain to celebrate 100 years of Maserati. 

"This will be a rare opportunity to see a grid of cars from the 1930s to the 1960s all powered by engines built by Maserati or OSCA.”
