This wonderful Maserati 250F is something of a Goodwood regular and returns to the Motor Circuit for 73MM this weekend, competing in the Hawthorne Trophy. It was one of the parade of 250Fs seen at last year’s Revival and raced in the Richmond Trophy at the same meeting. It was also part of a demonstration of cars running behind Sir Stirling Moss at the Silverstone Classic of 2014 – owner Niall Dyer having not been shy in campaigning the car in nine months of ownership.
The 2.5-litre straight six engine and transaxle originated from a one-off 2518 Streamliner that was destroyed in a factory fire. The new chassis was a tool-room copy built by Maserati in the ’60s and all the parts were 250F originals. Niall is still getting to grips with the car but, judging by his feedback after a recent shakedown, he’s having a great deal of fun learning.
