Maserati’s spirits were high at the glamorous Goodwood Revival as the iconic marque celebrated 70 years of the Maserati GT and 60 years since Maserati’s Formula 1 World Championship win with the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio.
Maserati celebrated 70 years of the GT together with its contemporary range in Goodwood’s art deco Earls Court Motor Show exhibition hall. Maserati’s future and past appeared in perfect harmony, as Maserati showcased the new Levante S, the marque’s first SUV, and the Ghibli executive saloon alongside a 1960 3500 GT Vignale Spyder. In keeping with the Revival theme, the 3500 GT display in the Earls Court hall was inspired by Maserati’s stand at the Geneva Motor Show in 1957, when it was first launched to the public.
Elsewhere, outside the Jackie Stewart Pavilion, the pits were transformed into those from the 1957 German Grand Prix, creating a unique tribute to the Nurburgring race. The iconic Maserati 250F, which was driven to a legendary victory by Fangio before the formidable pairing later won the 1957 Formula 1 World Championship, took to the track again over the weekend with avid fans witnessing the roar of the V12 engine once more. On Sunday, Formula One great and three-time Formula One World Drivers’ Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart, experienced the power of the 250F, taking to the circuit in a rare exclusive for the attending public.
Weekend racing continued, as a number of legendary Maserati cars also took to the circuit competing in the Goodwood Trophy, Sussex Trophy, Freddie March Memorial Trophy and Richmond Trophy. Highlights from the weekend races include the Maserati 6CM, which crossed the line third in the Goodwood Trophy, as well as the iconic 250F which came seventh in the Richmond Trophy.
