Maserati V8 RI-Part Three

Maserati V8 RI Part Three At the end of part two of this story we had reached the point where the four Maserati V8 RI cars had reached the end of their useful life in open International racing, having had varied and chequered careers since they were built in 1935/36.

The numbers game

Unravelling the mystery of various Maserati 250Fs… The Maserati 250F is everyone's favourite '50s Grand Prix car.
