In brief, September 2008

The ex-Whitney Straight/Prince Bira Maserati 8CM chassis 3011 will race in Britain for the first time in over 20 years at the Goodwood Revival Meeting in September. Chris Jaques, who is related by marriage to the Chakrabongse family, recently brought the car back from the USA and is preparing it for Rob Newall to race at Goodwood. “Over the winter we’re planning to put it back to the White Mouse Racing colours it ran before and after the war,” said Jaques.
