Exhibitions, parades, a regularity race, a track test, a visit to the two Maserati factories and a concours d’elegance should see cars and collectors flocking to Modena on September 18th -20th to join the International Maserati Centennial Gathering.
There’s a visit planned to the Exhibition at the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari dedicated to the Maserati Centennial, and then to the historic Viale Ciro Menotti factory where Maserati GranTurismos and GranCabrios and the Alfa Romeo 4C roll off the production lines.
The tour also includes a stop at the San Martino del Lago Circuit near Cremona, which will host track sessions and pay homage to Baconin Borzacchini and his Maserati V4 ‘16 cylinder, in which the Italian driver set the world record over the Flying 10 Kilometres, and the tour convoy will parade Cremona before racing on to Turin.
The final day includes a visit to the Avv. Giovanni Agnelli Plant, where Maserati Ghiblis and Quattroportes are built, and the final leg of the regularity race. The Concours d’Elegance in Piazza San Carlo taking place in the afternoon will be the grand finale.
With an opportunity to have their cars photographed next to the famous Fountain of Neptune in the historic centre of Bologna – the inspiration for the Maserati trident logo – this event looks unmissable for owners of interesting Maserati exotica. You can apply to take part at www.maserati100.com
Of course we’re planning our own celebration of the Maserati Centenary at the Festival of Speed in just a few short weeks, so stay tuned to Goodwood Road & Racing for more info…
