  Race Results

"Originally consigned by Maserati to the Modenese Concessionaire Autospeak on 20 April 1995, it was immediately purchased by the Pro-Race Motorsport team for participation in the 1995 Ghibli Open Cup Championship, taking part in every race on the calendar, in the configuration required for the 1995 Championship. Following the 1995 season the car was modified to participate in the 1996 Ghibli Open Cup Championship (which sadly ended after only two races).

#361232 was then raced in the Italian GT Championship of 1996, 1997 and 1998, taking part the first four races in that same 1996 configuration, but later modified to conform with the new rules laid down for the Italian GT Championship.

According to data shown in the car's Technical Passport (see photos below), that indicate a very intense racing history, I would say that no other Ghibli Open Cup has raced quite as much, and with such an enviable "Palmares", as well as the benefit of having been driven by drivers of the calibre of Arturo Merzario, Bruno Corradi and Beppe Schenetti.

#361232 has now been retored to its original 1995 condition, with the help of Werter and Wilmer Sala, sons of the late William Sala, owner of SW Racing.

The restoration involved the entire car, mechanical as well as bodywork, and carried out with respect to its original specification."

"I own Ghibli Open Cup chassis #361223 since February 1997. The car is a 95 Open Cup with Evolution updated to 96 specification, it is painted red/yellow with No 15 and drivers name Zardo. Car is unchanged since its last race except for street legal modifications - 2nd seat (only one in the original Open Cups), street legal tyres, hand brake and head lights, still Ferrari ones, but now suitable for left-hand drive road use (factory cars had all right-hand drive beams)."

"Now fitted with 1996 Evo upgrade. The engine, gearbox and the rear axle are still sealed. It has done 33,000km and has a road registration. New rims had to be mounted (the magnesium wheels had little cracks). Air filters, dump valves and pipes had been changed to stainless steel (60mm).

"The car shown in these photographs is the ex-Duncan Huisman car which captured pole position in both the races staged in the 1996 season. For a variety of reasons it failed to finish in both races. The car is completely original with less than 3000 km on the odometer (speedometer).

To meet local registration requirements, two Koenig racing seats with Sabelt racing safety harnesses, road tyres (225/40ZR18 front and 265/35ZR18 rear), a hand-brake for the rear wheels and a custom-built silencer (which is almost as loud as the original one) have been installed."

The car was sold in 2007 and shipped to its new owner in Brisbane, Australia. It underwent an extensive refreshment at the official Maserati dealer/workshop in Sydney, with over 100 hours having been spent and has been left as close to its original as possible. It has only run the car once at Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst, New South Wales in December 2007. In the past six months the gearbox was rebuilt, a dual exhaust system fabricated and the Bilstein shocks rebuilt etc. etc.

 July 2017 - According to the present owner:

"Based on information from the previous owner this very special white Maserati Ghibli Open Cup in full 1996 version was delivered from new to the private car collection of the South Korean "Samsung brothers" in Frankfurt (where they stored one part of their precious collection of sports cars).

 At the airport in Frankfurt the Ghibli was stored for the last twenty years and was well maintained and taken care of by the Samsung car specialists. This Open Cup is still in "as new" condition with less than 60 km on the odometer. It has never raced or been on any track. The car (ZAM336B00*00361627) was sold to its new owner with the original twenty year old Michelin racing slicks and the original set of racing tyres for wet conditions - both on immaculate Techno Magnesia wheels. The Ghibli Open Cup is not road-legal and was sold with the original "DMSB Wagenpass" (German Racing License) which of course is outdated today. The current plan is to carefully prepare this beauty in the years to come for future gentleman racing."


 Mario would be very grateful to receive any additional information on this Open Cup from enthusiasts around the world at viva-hate@web.de."
