MASERATI AT GOODWOOD REVIVALMaserati GB were once again present at the eighth running of the Goodwood Revival meeting held at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit which welcomed a record breaking 116,000 spectators over the course of the weekend. Splendid examples of the Trident Marque were out in force throughout the weekend with a total of 23 classic Maseratis thundering around the circuit. A selection of historic cars were engaged in wheel-to-wheel racing action, including some of the Trident’s earliest racing cars, including two Maserati 4CMs and five 250Fs to name but a few. Thanks to an interview for Italian television RAI and the kindness of its current owner Andrea Burani, Sir Stirling Moss was reunited with the 300S that he raced at the Nürburgring in the 1950s, and Pink Floyd drummer and car enthusiast Nick Mason also took to the track in his own 1959 Maserati Birdcage Tipo 61. During the course of the Goodwood Revival weekend, Maserati GB hosted a series of events for its clients: on Friday a cocktail party at Goodwood House for all the drivers and their guests, followed by a private dinner, and on Sunday 130 guests, including football legend Ian Wright, were treated to sumptuous hospitality and could admire a selection of both modern and classic Maseratis. The stunning display of Maserati Quattroportes in both the Sport GT and Executive GT incarnations flanked the new GranTurismo alongside two of the Trident’s most evocative classics, the 1960 3500 GT and a 1967 Ghibli which commanded the admiration of all. The new GranTurismo took centre stage at the Maserati New Car Display situated outside of the main circuit, which welcomed the crowds arriving at the Goodwood Revival.Tags:,
