MCJ Midi Touring
 

"Dear Enrico,

I hope everything going well.

The Maserati Club of Japan is located in Tokyo and one branch exists in Osaka (MCJ West).

Even though Japan is not as wide as the whole of Europe or the United states, but it is sometimes difficult to join events every time from both sides of the country.

The MCJ has now established the Maserati Club of Japan "Midi" as a branch of MCJ to enable more activities to enjoy Maseratis in each area. "Midi" means the central area of Japan, located at Nagoya.

We had a "Touring" as the first official event of MCJ "Midi" on 25th and 26th June.

17 Maseratis came together for this event from near Nagoya, Tokyo and Kyusyu (South area of Japan !?).

Actually a Quattoroporte III was coming to join the us from Aomori (Noth area of Japan), unfortunately he had trouble on the way and could not join us.

Many of "old" Biturbos participated to this touring and it lead us to imagine the event in 90's.

The participants are listed below:

Spyder; 5 vehicles
Biturbo 2.5; 1 vehicle
Karif; 1 vehicle
Quatroporte III; 1 vehicle
Ghibli II; 1 vehicle
Ghibli Cup; 1 vehicle
3200 GT; 3 vechiles
Coupe; 1 vehicle
GranSport; 1 vehicle
GranTurismo; 1 vehicle
Ghibli III; 1 vehicle

A total of 17 vehicles.

It is the rainy season in Japan and all particitants worried about the weather, actually the rain had passed by early morning, and it was good day for driving Maseratis, especially nice weather for Spyders with no rain qand not too hot.

We met at a parking lot near Hamamatsu in Shizuoka and on to lunch at the restaurant "Yu no Kaze HAZU" in Aichi.

This resutaurant is located in the good hot spring area surrounded by beautiful nature. We enjoyed a good Japanese lunch and relaxed at the hot springs.

We then drove the winding roads, highway and country roads around the Hamana lake with taking a video. After we arrived the Irago view hotel, everyone enjoyed the nice ocean view from the hot springs.

MCJ Midi was officially announced in MCJ at the dinner party. Mr. Sugiura, Mr, Hayakawa and myself will lead the activity of MCJ Midi.

There are nice Italian meal, nice ocean view and nice video from the last Maserati Day in Japan and the 'Centennial' gathering in Italy.

Mr. Ekko gave us the presentation of the latest Maserati in Italy, and three Mille Miglia participants gave us a talk about their experiences from this year's race. This enjoyable time continued till midnight...

The plan for the second day was just to take a picture with all participants and leave the hotel early to avoid any traffic jams on the way back to Tokyo. Actually after taking the picture, all participants chatted for more than two hours at the parking lot.

It was very nice time and my trips to Japan will incerase more frequently....

Best regards,

Hisato."

Playing in the UK match at the iconic ground was a very special guest; HRH The Duke of Cambridge who played on the Maserati team.

His Royal Highness took part in the game in aid of the Princes’ chosen charities England and Wales Mountain Rescue, Household Cavalry Foundation and Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust. Since 2007 the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry have been playing polo in support of their charities. This summer’s matches will see the total they have raised pass the £10 million mark.

Joining the Princes in the action were England Internationals and La Martina ambassadors, Malcolm Borwick, and George Meyrick.

2016 is the third year Maserati and its historic partner La Martina have hosted a world polo tour, with the UK match being the third of six matches on the calendar. The 2016 season spans nine months, covering three continents and six time zones.

La Martina, the prestigious supplier of technical polo equipment and luxury lifestyle clothing and official supplier of the Maserati Team, has partnered with the luxury car manufacturer to further strengthen the relationship of the two brands. To mark this leg of the tour, La Martina released a limited edition polo shirt – the Anatomic Sport, of which only 300 will be available.

Enrico Roselli, La Martina CEO, said: “It is a fantastic opportunity to host a third prestigious world polo tour match in the UK alongside Maserati, and at the same time continue to further grow our relationship with another like-minded brand that also contains such magnificent heritage.”

"Dear Enrico,

I am an amateur photographer with a love of 1950's Italian cars, the pictures may be used or published as you wish, I use the name 'Tripos Media' when photos are published, so it would be nice if that is used.

I have other pictures of Maseratis in my files, and I could sort through if there was something you wanted. I first saw Maseratis racing in 1951, and have always loved them. Great cars with a great history.

Thank you for running your site, it is amazing.

Kind regards,

Bob."
