Classic Ferraris And Maserati In Full Attack!

Classic Ferraris And Maserati In Full Attack!

The Jim Clark Revival meeting took place at the weekend (28-30 April 2006) attracting some of the most historically significant Ferrari and Maserati race cars to the German Hockenheim race track to be seen as God intended – flat out and in full attack!

Testing themselves against the German circuit were drivers in the European Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, a championship which, since 1999, has also been open to Maseratis. The event also featured a display of 10 Ferrari single-seaters from the past, which was coordinated by Maranello's F1 Clienti department.

This was the season curtain-raiser for the European series and it saw wins in grids A+B (single-seaters, sports-prototypes and GT cars fitted with drum brakes) for local driver Max Werner in race-1 in his 1955 Maserati 300 S and for another 300 S (1954,) out on track in the hands of British driver, David Franklin, in the second race.

As for group C (cars with disc brakes,) wins in the two races were split between the 1981 Ferrari 512 BB LM of Dutchman, John Bosch and the 1970 Ferrari 512 M of France's Michel Fertè.

The European series of the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge will be back on track over the weekend of 4 June in Valencia, Spain.
