Maserati 250F

Maserati was the featured marque at the SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2005, and particularly the 250F Formula 1 car of the 1950s. Twelve examples of this model, together with a few pre-war cars, took part in a special Celebration Maserati Invitation Race and pictured below is one of the cars that took part.
The programme of the event records that, with the exception of the Bugatti Type 35, the Maserati 250F had the highest production of any other Grand Prix car with 28 built, plus twelve further replicas. This car is one of those replicas, one of the ten built by Cameron Miller, and is chassis CM8. The car was at that time owned by Georg Kaufmann and driven in the race (and also the Ron Flockhart Memorial Trophy race) by Hansruedi Portmann.
