From the SRO Media Centre

Back to the roots …
the Blancpain Endurance Series is Unveiled

Three-hour races, with all the excitement of pit stops, driver changes, multiple classes and non-stop overtaking. The magical formula that made the FIA GT Championship such a success with teams, drivers and the media alike is coming back… 2011 will see the rebirth of the endurance format for GT cars with the brand-new Blancpain Endurance Series.

The SRO-promoted FIA GT1 World Championship has proved to be a great success in its inaugural season. With growing audiences, and a round in China in 2011, its focus will be increasingly global in future years. As for the FIA GT3 European Championship, it will be entering its sixth season in 2011. With new cars from major manufacturers such as Ferrari and Mercedes, the Championship is growing in professionalism year after year, and will make an extra step in its European reach with an event in Russia in 2011.

“Although we are convinced that the one-hour sprint format is ideal for the growing mediatisation of our professional series, we are aware that we have left some of our most staunch supporters behind,” Stephane Ratel commented. “Some of the gentlemen drivers, and a number of smaller teams, are looking for a new challenge. We believe that the Blancpain Endurance Series will provide them with exactly the right environment.”

Reserved for GT3 and GT4 cars, which have already made their mark in long-distance races, without having a specific arena to test their skills, the new series will be centred around GT racing’s showcase event, the Total 24 Hours of Spa. The remaining three-hour events will take place at high-powered Monza, in Italy, Spain’s newest circuit of Navarra, France’s popular and classic Magny Cours, and the home of British racing, Silverstone.

With the three-driver line-up so popular with teams and gentlemen drivers, no driver classification in the top class, and a three-step qualifying system inspired from Formula One, the new series aims to give teams drivers everything they want in a friendly yet professional atmosphere. With live TV production and the excitement guaranteed from large grids in long races on beautiful circuits, the public and media should also be spoiled !

Promoted by SRO Motorsports Group, the company which was behind the rebirth of GT racing and without whom the GT3 and GT4 categories would not exist, the Blancpain Endurance Series will be an international GT series run under the aegis of the Royal Automobile Club of Belgium, and recognised by the FIA. It takes its name from a much-valued partnership with the prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer Blancpain.

Stephane Ratel said: “After just a year away from the long-distance format, we are returning to our roots. This three-hour format was the backbone of our racing for a decade, and has proved its popularity and worth. With some of the most beautiful, powerful and challenging circuits in Europe on the calendar, no clashes with national or European GT3 Championships, and categories to suit all drivers and teams, I am certain that this new series has a real chance of success. We are aiming at grids of thirty or so cars, and are certain that many teams competing with us in either the FIA GT3 European Championship or the GT4 European Cup will appreciate the opportunity to stretch their legs on longer races, amortising their costs and pleasing their drivers.”

2011 Blancpain Endurance Series

17th April: Monza - Italy

22nd May: Navarra - Spain

30th July: Total 24 Hours of Spa - Belgium

27th August: Magny Cours - France

9th October: Silverstone - Great Britain

The Blancpain Endurance Series

Weekend format for the three-hour races:

Two free practice sessions of one hour each

Three qualifying sessions of 15 minutes each, one for each of the three drivers. The grid will be determined by the fastest time set by each car but there is freedom of choice for the starting driver

A three-hour race

For the 24 Hours of Spa, the format similar to that in 2010 will remain in place

The three hour events will include two mandatory pit stops with tyre and driver change in order to avoid issues of fuel consumption.

Mandatory participation of three drivers per car in all categories for the three-hour races, except for the Pro-Am and Citation Cup, in which the organiser will be allowed to accept two driver teams on condition that the professional driver (in Pro-Am) or Silver (in Citation Cup) does not run more than 80 minutes.

The changing of the four tyres is mandatory at each of the two pit stops so as not to disadvantage heavier or front-engined cars which generally wear out more rubber.

The technical regulations will be those from the FIA GT3 European Championship and from the GT4 European Cup. For the older models with national homologations, the files will be studied on a case by case basis.

FIA-style points scale 25 – 18 – 15 – 12 – 10 - 8 – 6 – 4 – 2 – 1 will be used for all categories. Points will be doubled for the 24 Hours of Spa, with one quarter at six hours, one quarter at 12 hours and half after 24 hours.

The series is open to teams of one, two or three cars. Only the points scored by the team’s best placed car will count in the team’s points standings.

The choice of manufacturer will be free, but development tyres will not be permitted. Only customer tyres, regularly sold and registered by the RACB/SRO before the first race of the season will be accepted.

Three categories in GT3 will be accepted, each of them with their own podium:

1)- GT3 Pro Cup

Drivers: Three drivers (3) at all races, including the 24 Hours of Spa. No driver categorisation.

Cars: GT3 cars in the latest FIA Homologation Specs and FIA Balance of Performance.

2)- GT3 Pro-Am Cup

Drivers: Three drivers (3) at the three-hour races (3H), and four (4) at the 24 Hours of Spa.

Cars: GT3 cars in the latest FIA Homologation Specs and FIA Balance of Performance.

3)- GT3 Citation Cup

GT1 World Champions Honoured at FIA Gala - 10/12/2010

The FIA honoured the 2010 FIA GT1 World Champions during the FIA Gala, held in the prestigious Salle des Etoiles of the Montecarlo Sporting d'Ete, surrounded by the other champions from world motorsport. After thirteen successful seasons, 2010 saw the FIA GT Championship become the FIA’s newest World Championship, run exclusively for GT1 cars.

Vitaphone Racing Team secured the Teams title with its Maserati MC 12 cars, adding the FIA GT1 World crown to the five successive FIA GT titles the team won from 2005 to 2009 and finishing ahead of Hexis AMR, who moved into the Vice Champions position at the last round by becoming the only team to have both their cars on the podium in a Championship Race in 2010. Three race wins helped secure third place in the Teams Championship for Reiter.

Eight different teams, representing all six manufacturers entered in the championship, claimed either a Qualifying or Championship Race victory this year, with the Drivers’ title going down to the final event at San Luis in Argentina, where Andrea Bertolini and Michael Bartels added the World Championship to the three FIA GT titles they won together in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Thomas Mutsch, driving a Matech Competition Ford GT, claimed the Vice Champions position with the assistance of Romain Grosjean in the first five races and then 2009 FIA GT2 Champion Richard Westbrook for the second half of 2010. Third place in the championship was claimed by Frederic Makowiecki with a double win in a Hexis AMR Aston Martin DB9 in the last round in Argentina with fellow Frenchman Yann Clairay.

Michael Bartels said:

“This championship is not comparable with the last few championships. Last year we had one or two teams we were up against but this year we had a top level of drivers and teams pushing us all the time. We had new rules to adapt to, and we had to redevelop the car for the 2010 regulations. In Abu Dhabi and Silverstone we were not so competitive but we kept our minds focused and concentrated and we took our chances when they came. One of the advantages we had as drivers was that Andrea and I know each other so well, we know when to push and when to take it easy and bring the car home. We have a blind understanding between us. No one is jealous of the other when one is quickest and the other way around. We do our job in a very disciplined style and we get the rewards.”

Andrea Bertolini agreed:

“It was really long season with two races each weekend. The team was very focused, they check every detail, they are very professional about what they do and this makes the job for Michael and me that little bit easier because we know when we get in the car everything will work the best it can. It’s a really exciting format. It’s one of the nicest championships I have been involved with; it is a really top-class show. To win this championship with the new format is very satisfying. Even when we had weight like 40 kilos we scored points and kept our challenge going. For me, working with Maserati is like being with a family. They give me the motivation just like I had with my time with Ferrari.

"It has been a pleasure again to work with the Vitaphone team. They are a great group every member of the team is very motivated to do the best job they can. They deserve this championship for being professional for the whole season and doing a great job to have the car well prepared and for their great work in the pit stops.”

A 1965 Maserati 3500 GT - Offered Without Reserve

Consignment # 9125

1965 Maserati 3500 GT
Chassis No: AM101*2476*

The Maserati Company was established in 1914 by brothers Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ettore, Ernesto and Mario. All were involved with automobiles from the dawn of the 20th century. One of their first customers was Diatto, for whom Alfieri, Bindo and Ernesto built Grand Prix cars. In 1926, Diatto suspended the production of race cars, leading to the creation of the first car to wear the Maserati name and the founding of the Maserati marque; one of these, driven by Alfieri, went on to win the 1926 Targa Florio.

Maserati soon became well-known as a builder of racing cars powered by engines that ranged from 4 to 16 cylinders. Mario, an artist, is believed to have devised the company's trident emblem. Alfieri Maserati died in 1932 but his brothers, Bindo, Ernesto and Ettore, kept the firm going, building cars that continued to win races that brought fame to the marque. In 1937, the remaining Maserati brothers sold their shares in the company to Commendatore Adolfo Orsi, who in 1940 relocated the company headquarters to his hometown of Modena. Maserati continued to be successful despite the destruction of war; in fact, during 1940 and 1941, a Maserati won the Indianapolis 500.

The Maserati 3500 GT was produced from 1955 through 1966 with over 2,000 examples of all types having been built. Styled by Carrozzeria Touring, who gathered many styling cues from the legendary Maserati A6G54 coupe, the 3500 GT remains regarded as Maserati's savior. Prior to its production, the company produced less than 140 cars in a ten-year timespan. Racing and competition nearly exhausted their precious funds - the company clearly needed help. The widely-accepted 3500 GT would save the company and allowed for Maserati to continue its racing efforts with the development of the famous 'Birdcage' racers of the early-1960s. Other coachbuilders also had a hand in later models, including Vignale, who constructed both open and closed examples from 1959 to 1966.

This rare and exclusive 1965 Maserati 3500 GT is a seldom-seen and late-production specimen of the breed, especially with the operable side windows. Finished in the correct factory shade of blue, it was recently professionally refinished, color-sanded and buffed following a comprehensive exterior dis-assembly for a high-quality finish.

Christmas could come early for someone ??

Oh Santa !!

All I want for Christmas is ... Maserati MC12 #ZAMDF44B000012099

Santa, are you still listening ??


Extremely rare Maserati MC12. One of only seven U.S. federalized cars.

Chassis No: *ZAMDF44B000012099*

Only 158 miles (254 Kms).

Maserati designed and built the car on the chassis of the Enzo Ferrari but the final car has much larger size and a lower drag coefficient. The MC12 is longer, wider and taller and has a sharper nose and smoother curves than the Enzo Ferrari.

Unveiled at the 2004 Geneva motor show, it was a very exclusive mid-engine model originally intended to be hand-built in just 25 units, all of which sold-out before its launch. Due to the MC12’s considerable success, immediately followed up with numerous victories in the FIA’s GT1 class, a second batch of 25 cars was built in 2005.

Designed for high level road use, the MC12 exceeded 330 kmh at full throttle, sprinting from 0 to 100 kmh in just 3.8 seconds. The MC12 benefited from the Ferrari-Maserati Group’s most advanced technologies and competition experience. Its naturally aspirated 6 litre V12 punched out 465 kW at 7500 rpm, yet offered absolutely excellent drivability, remaining exceptionally lively and fluid even at low engine speeds. An aluminium crankcase, titanium con-rods and extremely efficient fourvalve cylinder heads were all part of its design. Four gear-driven overhead camshafts provided perfect timing control. The unit was mated to Maserati’s proven six-speed Cambiocorsa transmission, offering computerised gear selection. In Race mode, the system was mapped to deliver much faster gear changes and to activate the ASR.

The MC12’s independent wishbone front and rear suspension with anti-dive and anti-squat geometries and push-rod set-up offered an extremely progressive suspension response for exceptionally precise handling in all conditions. The stress-bearing chassis was made from a carbon fibre and Nomex honeycomb sandwich, while the two-seater coupé/spyder bodywork was constructed entirely from carbon fibre, and featured a removable hard top. The car’s styling was developed in the wind tunnel from an idealoriginally from Giugiaro by Maserati’s own technicians with the invaluable contribution of Frank Stephenson, then in charge of the Ferrari Maserati Group’s Concept Design and Development department. Intensive wind tunnel testing and advanced mathematical computations, combined with work on the track and on the road resulted in an extraordinarily efficient shape that exudes power and personality. All air intakes, vents and other aerodynamic components had been designed to optimise the car’s internal fluid dynamics and air flows to ensure optimal downforce (vertical load) and aerodynamic efficiency values. The whole underside of the car had been faired in and sealed with the fitting of two generous diffusers for maximum ground effect.

The MC12 was Maserati’s first mid-engine road-legal GT since 1982. In June 2004, Maserati’s CEO Martin Leach personally demonstrated the car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

For further details please call Rayda Sinni with any questions you may have: 001 705 726 7399

Vehicle located in Dallas / Texas.

Have a nice Christmas !!

From Newspress in the UK



Modena, December 7 2010. Fifth Drivers’ title and sixth Team’s title in six seasons for the Maserati MC12 in the international FIA GT Championship - World Championship. Leading actors in Maserati’s 2010 success were, for the fourth time, the Bertolini-Bartels crew and the German Vitaphone Racing Team: they won six titles in six years.

Maserati’s success story in the FIA GT Championship started in 2004 when the MC12 competed in four races, outside the Championship ranking. Success came early as Maserati achieved its first victory in the second race it entered with Bertolini-Salo. From the following season Maserati joined forces with the Vitaphone Racing Team, flanked in 2005 by JMB and in 2007 by PlayTeam.

From 2005 to date, Maserati has struck with the MC12 both its targets, the Drivers’ and Teams’ titles, on every occasion with the single exception of the first time around, when Bertolini-Wendlinger, fielded by the JMB team and heading up the ranking until then, saw their championship victory slip through their fingers in the last race due to a transmission problem which was unprecedented on the car and has since failed to reoccur.

Reliability and competitiveness are the two key factors in Maserati’s prolonged series of successes. If the MC12 has been able to stay at the top for many years, despite significant changes in the technical regulations, this is due to the fact that the car comes without innate flaws, with a highly rigid carbon fibre monocoque chassis, excellent weight distribution between front and rear, equally excellent aerodynamic balance and a very low centre of gravity. For these reasons even when its aspirated 6-litre V12 engine, originally 750 HP, was first reduced to 630 HP according to 2005 FIA regulations, then to the current 560 HP to comply with the current regulations, the car still stood out from the competition in terms of overall balance, speed on curves and lower tyre wear. This is the explanation of the MC12 triumphs.

Maserati's participation in the FIA GT Championship since 2005 produced fourteen titles (and 22 victories): two Constructors' Cups (2005 and 2007), five Drivers' Titles (Bartels-Bertolini in 2006, Thomas Biagi in 2007, and Bartels-Bertolini in 2008, 2009 and 2010); six Teams' Titles (consecutively since 2005, by the Vitaphone Racing Team); one Citation Cup in 2007 by gentleman driver Ben Aucott, JMB Racing, in addition to three absolute victories in Spa's 24 Hours (2005, 2006 and 2008).

Races have always been Maserati's favorite testing ground. The GranTurismo MC Stradale that was introduced at the recent Paris Motor Show is the most recent example of the connection existing between Maserati's racing activity and its road-going production. The new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale will be the fastest, lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range when it goes on sale in the first quarter of 2011.

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale uses advanced electronics to cut gear-shift times from the upgraded MC Race Shift electro-actuated transaxle gearbox to just 60 milliseconds. This all helps to slash the 0-100km/h sprint time, which the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale covers in just 4.6 seconds. The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is also the first Maserati in history to have a dedicated Race mode alongside the upgraded Auto and Sport modes in its simplified dash layout.
