The Maserati MC12s at Brno (Czech Republic) for the second round of the FIA GT Championship


The second round of the FIA GT International Championship got underway with today's (Friday 26 May) free practice session. The event is being held at Brno (Czech Republic) and will witness the involvement of two Maserati MC12s. The Trident cars will be fielded by Vitaphone Racing Team and driven by Michael Bartels/Andrea Bertolini and by Jamie Davies/Thomas Biagi. At the end of the 90 minute session, Davies/Biagi set the sixth fastest time of 1'59"320 secs. Bartels-Bertolini were eighth quickest in 1'59"931. Topping the timesheet was the Bert/Janis crew (Saleen) in 1'57"951.

Both Maseratis are taking to the track with 25kg of extra weight on board. This was assigned by the FIA following their showing in 2005. Bartels/Bertolini's MC12 has a further 40kg of ballast to contend with having won the season's opening race at Silverstone. The Maserati MC12s, in 2005, took third on the grid and second in the race with Bertolini/Wendlinger.

From Andy in Germany

"Hi Enrico,

me and my friends, all Maserati enthusiasts, were in Brescia to visit the Mille Miglia 2006 as we do this since 6 years. It's amazing to see all those high price vintage cars especially the Maserati and the OSCA. The greatest driving museum you have ever seen is on the road in this days and Italy around the Mille is in the state of emergency in this days because of all the Tiffosis and Fans on the racetrack. On Thursday after the technical homologation when they start at 20:00 we where sitting in a bar near the racetrack (normal street) drinking some wine and shooting good photos. After a while we started our Maseratis and followed the race drivers to Verona. It was absolut impressively for us to drive between those old race cars.

We lived in Gardone at the Garda Lake during those days. On Friday we made a Ladies Day and visited all nearly shoe shops and markets around the Garda Lake. In Dro near Trentino you can buy real good Grappa at the Grappa Destilleria Angeli. But you have to take care because you can taste alle the Grappas they have.

On Saturday we drove to the Passa de la Futta to met the race participants again. We discovered a good place to make photos and after about one hour we started our engines again and followed the race cars in a real high speed, the same speed all other vintage cars where driving and the police had nothing against it you could assume. So we drove the complete rest of the racetrack, about 250 kilometers, between those old high pricing race cars. Normally you can't explain what we feel. I hope once I will be able to attend this historic race with a historic racing car built by Maserati.

All days real good weather, I know we will do this journey again next year............. it will be a fixed date in my calendar.

Ciao Andy from Stuttgart (Germany)."

"Hi Andy,

Thank you so much for the photos. It looks as though you had a great time.

My wife and I stayed at Salo. I may have missed the Mille Miglia but I made sure my wife missed the shops, so it wasn't all bad!!

Best regards,


PS: Next year I will try to arrange a meeting place for Maserati enthusiasts in Brescia so we can all meet up for a meal or something!"

If anyone else is interested, please let me know! I promise to get the dates right next year!!

From the Panini Museum in Modena, Italy

A new Maserati has now been added to the Panini Collection, a Tipo 250F V12. The car has recently undergone a complete restoration by Steve Hart here in the UK.









On a more serious note, this 'war memorial' stands in the courtyard outside the Panini Farm Shop.

Whilst looking through my library of photographs, I came across these photos that I took at Donington last year.

Most of the photos I took have already been published, but here are a few that are a little bit different and I am sure you will enjoy them.

From Enrico in the UK


I am often asked by Maserati owners about possible ways of increasing the performance of their cars.

It is a well known fact in racing circles that the easiest and most economical way to improve performance is to reduce the weight of the car, but this is not always that easy to accomplish on a road car.

Following extensive research into the subject, I have discovered a far simpler method, and I am more than happy to share these results with you, and in the process you will probably save enough money to run your Maserati.

The cheapest and simplest method of increasing any Maserati's performance is to REDUCE THE WEIGHT OF THE DRIVER!

My research over the past 18 months, during which I lost almost 60 pounds (that's around 27 kilos), has not only made my Maserati go a lot faster but has also made me a lot quicker off the mark!

Below you will find photographs illustrating 'Enrico's Stage I Tuning' for the driver. And what's more, this is a conversion that you will enjoy!

Good luck,



The Ingredients


Three Salmon fillets ready for steaming.

Slice some Ginger into long thin (matchstick-sized) strips.

Slice some Spring Onions into long thin strips.

You will need a few drops of Dark Soya Sauce.

'Julienning' is a method of food preparation in which the food item is cut into long thin (matchstick-sized) strips.


The Preparation


Steam the Salmon or fish for four to five minutes

In a small pan, heat a tablespoon of Olive oil until it smokes.

Add a little of the 'Julienne' Ginger

Garnish with some strips of the Spring Onions

Drizzle on a tablespoon of the HOT Olive Oil!

Sprinkle a tablespoon of Dark Soya Sauce (Amoy is best!)

The Result: Reduced weight = increased performance!!!


Add a selection of steamed vegetables and you have a tasty low calorie meal for one!!

If you find that this is making your Maserati go too fast, finish off with a large Ice Cream Sundae!!
