“The final three races in the FIA GT Championship season proved one thing: The Maserati MC12 is a must-have for any team or driver with ambitions to win championships. Over those last three races, Maserati has clinched the Manufacturers’ Cup, for the second time in three years, and Vitaphone Racing has pulled off the unprecedented feat of a third consecutive Teams’ Championship. Thomas Biagi clinched the Drivers’ Championship, the second year in a row a Vitaphone driver has taken the title. For good measure Ben Aucott has clinched the inaugural Citation Cup, the trophy for ‘gentleman drivers’… While the Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins and Corvettes put up an admirable fight, at the season’s end it was Maserati alone that won every championship in the series, for drivers, teams, and manufacturers.”

Long story short, the MC12 was on every podium in 2007, except 1, and in three years of competition, the MC12 has won 2 Manufacturers Trophies, 3 Team Titles, 2 Drivers’ Crowns, and the 1st ever Citation Cup.

50 years after Fangio, Maserati is still proving they have what it takes to win.

“I’ve raced and won in cars of all marques but I always had a special relationship with Maserati: not only were the cars safe, reliable and always absolutely technically avant-garde, but there was a very special friendship and atmosphere between myself and the marque. I felt completely at home.”
