THAT MYSTERY EX-G.P. CAR
From the Hon. Patrick Lindsay Sir,
The photograph in the March issue is not Gavin Maxwell’s converted single-seater G.P. car nor is it the P3 Alfa Romeo; it is in fact my r93 r 2.3 Monza Alfa Romeo. It is an ex-Scuderia Ferrari which came to this country in 1933 when Brian Lewis won the Mannin Moar race.
Gavin Maxwell used to drive about in an ex-Grand Prix Maserati and it was certainly a most formidable road machine.
London, S.W.3. PATRICK LINDSAY. 11 should have spotted this, because I drove the converted ex-Shuttleworth monoposto P3 Alfa Romeo MPH 374 in roadtrim some twelve years ago. It is now somewhere in the North of England. Can anyone throw any light on which G.P. Maserati Gavin Maxwell owned ?—En.] •
