Maserati GB was proud to support the Celebrity Ryder Cup Golf Day which took place on the wonderful Goodwood course last week to raise funds for the Jodie Kidd Foundation.

The Foundation, created in 2006 by Maserati ambassador, super model and TV presenter Jodie Kidd, supports charities such as Greatwood, the NSPCC and the Monsoon and Accessorize Trust which mainly focus on helping disadvantaged children, both in England and abroad.

Many celebrities answered Jodie’s call and took part in the event: amongst them fellow Strictly Come Dancing contestant (and winner) actor Tom Chambers, comedian Rob Brydon, Jamie Redknapp, Jodie’s brother and professional polo player Jack Kidd and also Jonny Gould, MC for the evening.

At night the Charity auction, which also included a chauffeured Maserati for a luxurious day of Christmas Shopping and a ride sitting next to Jodie up Goodwood Hill during the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the brand new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale raised over £50,000 in aid of the Jodie Kidd Foundation.

MASERATI TIPO 61 - #7 Red or Yellow ??

I have two 1:43 scale models of the Maserati Tipo 61, which driven by Sir Stirling Moss won the Cuban Grand Prix in 1960, in my Maserati model collection.

You will notice from the images that both cars are in the livery of the CAMORADI race team, but one has the number seven inset in red, and the other inset in yellow. Which one is correct ??

It was my understanding the Lloyd "Lucky" Casner, founder and boss of the CAMORADI race team, was fiercely patriotic and demonstrated this by always introducing the colours of the American flag on his cars.

The only photograph I have ever seen of this car at the Cuban GP of 1960 was in Joel E Finn's great book "Maserati Birdcage: The marvellous Tipo 60 and 61 sports racing cars", and that photograph was in black and white.

Can anyone out there shed some new light on this subject ?

Thanking you in anticipation.

London, 24 September 2010 - The latest Maserati models ‘strut their stuff’ on the catwalks at London and Paris Fashion Week, which showcase the Spring/Summer 2011 collections.

Maserati is proud to support some of the world’s most famous designers by chauffeuring them and their guests to the shows and the various Fashion Week parties, which spark up the nightlife of these two capitals.

In London and in Paris a fleet of Maserati Quattroportes, GranTurismos and GranCabrios provide a luxurious getaway from the crowd and the paparazzi for, amongst others, Dame Vivienne Westwood, actress Pamela Anderson, TV presenter Cat Deeley, style icon Becka Diamond, dancer Felicity Todd, designers Matthew Williamson and Joseph Velosa.

Maserati also supplied chauffeur-driven cars to an exclusive group of lady clients who attended in style the fashion shows in town.

These two ultra glamorous weeks in London and Paris are the perfect backdrop for the debut on the fashion scene of the Maserati GranCabrio - the latest model from the Trident marque. The luxurious four-seater convertible, recently voted by GQ Best Open Top Car under £100K, is perfectly at ease whizzing through the streets of London and Paris, as well as stretching its legs whilst doing an airport run to yet another capital of fashion.

"Hello Enrico,

I ran into your Maserati page on the net. I own a few Biturbos....and I'm a Maserati enthusiast.

I have bought myself a Maserati 50cc T2/U motorcycle last week, but the engine fails. Do you know someone in the UK (or outside the UK) who has such a engine for sale? It's a 3 gear manual. Pictures attached.

I have already spoken to Giovanni Salmi of the Registro Storico Moto Maserati Italia .... but he doesn't have such an engine I'm looking for.

I will place a advert on eBay Italia and probably go to Germany's Mannheim Veterama.

I want to restore the bike...but need the engine. It's such a loss if I can't find the engine...then restoration of the bike is no fun.

Thanks for the help.

"Ciao Maseratisti,

The other day whilst watching an episode of "Bergerac", a TV series about a Detective Bergerac of the "Bureau des étrangers" based in Jersey, that I had recorded early that morning on the Alibi channel, when I thought I'd caught a glimpse of a Maserati Biturbo leaving the Ferry.

A quick rewind and there it was following Charlie Hungerford's white Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III, a car I bet he wished he'd been driving instead, a Jersey-registered Maserati 430 !!

Bartels/Bertolini: a Maserati Triumphs in Algarve

19/09/2010 - Algarve (P), 19 September 2010 - It was a splendid victory, that of Vitaphone Racing Team's Maserati MC12 no. 1 driven by Bartels/Bertolini, in the seventh round of the FIA GT1 World Championship in the Algarve, Portugal, circuit. After the second place won yesterday in the Qualifying Race, today the Italian/German duo won the Championship Race thanks to a perfect racing strategy and the outstanding work of the entire team. Bertolini started off from first row in the grid and was able to maintain his second position in close contact with Dumbreck/Krumm's Nissan GT-R no. 23, building the foundation for a splendid Vitaphone Racing Team pit stop. The masterful work performed at the pit enabled Maserati MC 12 no. 1 to reach top position. Bartels, with a new set of tires, was able to cruise along, keeping in check the recovery attempts of Mutsch/Westbrook's Ford GT Matech no. 5 until the end.

Thanks to this victorious weekend in Algarve, Bartels/Bertolini widen the gap between them and their closest follower in the drivers' classification, Thomas Mutsch's Ford GT Matech, now left 27 points behind. Three races from the end, the competition is still keen and furious. The next round in Navarra will be a new circuit for everyone.

The same race ended at the first curve for Vitaphone Racing Team's Maserati MC12 no. 2 driven by Bernoldi/Ramos. Bernoldi was unable to avoid crashing against Pastorelli/Schwager's Lamborghini Murcielago no. 38, which had fishtailed after going into the artificial grass.

Triple H Team Hegersport's Maserati MC12 no. 33, driven by Heger/Mueller went off-track at the second lap and ended the race in ninth place. The performance of Triple H Team Hegersport's second Maserati MC12, driven by Pier Guidi/Mayr-Melnhof, was heavily conditioned by a flat to the left back tire in the race's initial stages. To confirm the Maserati's competitiveness, Pier Guidi's fast laps after the pit stop got him the best overall time of the day with 1:43.275.

Next race, 24 October, in Navarra, Spain.

Andrea Bertolini - Maserati MC12 no.1 - Vitaphone Racing Team - "This is the weekend we were hoping for. We got a great overall performance from the entire team: Maserati, engineers and team. I started out well and I was able to keep our second position close to Peter Dumbreck and could do no more than that. Then at the pit stop the team performed a masterpiece and Michael was able to remain at the lead until the end. It is an important victory for the classification; the championship is still up for grabs because our adversaries are competitive, but today we met the goal we set. We are overjoyed and confident about the end of the season".

Maserati GB was once again present as sponsor of the 12th edition of the Goodwood Revival meeting, which welcomed over 100,000 spectators over the course of the weekend.

As ever, some of the most exotic classic Maseratis raced on the circuit during the 3 days and a Maserati 250F driven by Frank Stippler, also came third in the Richmond Trophy.

Away from the thrilling on-track action, Maserati exhibited in the Earls Court Motorshow, recreating the glamour of an authentic 1960s show. A stunning Maserati Mistral Spyder alongside a Quattroporte Mk I wowed the spectators, whilst they were offered a tantalising glimpse of Maserati’s “cars of the future” in the form of the new Maserati GranCabrio and the stunning Quattroporte Sport GTS, beautiful evolutions of the 1960s models.

On Sunday 140 Maserati clients were treated to sumptuous hospitality at Goodwood House, where Maserati GB hosted its annual Goodwood Revival lunch. The spectacular display on the lawn in front of Goodwood House featured the various Spyders which marked the history of Maserati’s open top vehicles: Mistral Spyder, Ghibli Spyder, 3500GT Vignale Spyder, GranSport Spyder and finally the latest Maserati GranCabrio.

The prize for the Best Dressed Maserati Lady went this year to Mrs Jayne Dawson who received from Mr Thomas Hajek and Ms Katherine Watters from Jemma Kidd a goodie bag and a beautiful book about make up, both kindly donated by the Jemma Kidd Make up School.

Modena, September 20, 2010. 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.

Inspired by the Trofeo GranTurismo MC and the race-winning GT4 motorsport models, the two-seater Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale that will debut at the Paris Auto Show will feature razor-sharp handling and will break the 300km/h barrier.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale responds to demands for a GranTurismo which can balance on-road driving needs with race-driving desires, incorporating the handling and aerodynamic lessons from Maserati’s three racing programs.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale produces more aerodynamic down force without producing more aerodynamic drag, it produces more power – 336kw, 450 hp – without using more fuel and it is more agile without sacrificing the GranTurismo S’s highly praised ride quality.

copyright Maserati Club SwedenInternational Maserati Meeting  -  2/5 September 2010

The first weekend of September weekend saw the staging of the 2010 International Maserati Meeting.

For 2010, the Maserati Club Sweden had the honour of hosting this annual Maserati gathering, an event exclusive to Maserati Club members.

Over 70 members of Maserati Clubs from all over Europe assembled at Skåne in the southernmost part of Sweden.

This event, hosted by a different Maserati club each year, typifies all that is best in the Maserati tradition; fast classic and modern cars, mouth-watering gourmet food complemented with vintage wines, top class accomodation and friendship built on mutual respect.

Maurizio, AKA Bigfoot, has very kindly sent me this link to a selection of photos by Tobias Lewandovski (many and beautiful) of the International Maserati Meeting in Sweden, enjoy:

Maserati Club members will be delighted to know that for 2011, the Maserati Club Austria will be hosting the International Meeting.

The idea of holding a Maserati International Rally as such, was inspired by members of the British and French Maserati Clubs back in 1978, when following a series of correspondence between the relative members, an "inugural" rally, aptly named the "Seine Valley Serenade", was held in Normandy, France.

During the early years an annual get-together was organised resulting in the Rally of 19??, generally considered to be the first Maserati International Rally.

If you ever get the chance to visit the Louwman Museum, I am sure you will agree that it was well worth while - a fine collection !!
