very kindly made some time for me at the recent GPLive event at
Donington Park. Full
interview will appear here soon.
technical articles covering the hydraulic light switches on the Citroen
era cars and some interesting tips for anyone building a Merak/SM
engine (that may have application to other engine rebuilds as well)
have been added to the TechTips
library. Thanks to Rich Davis and John Spelic for
contributing these articles.
Don't get excited
- there's no pay on offer - just the glory(!) and fame of being a
regular contributor to the MRC.
The site is
becoming too large for one man (me!) to manage and as the
technology deployed here becomes more sophisticated finding the time to
both develop the site's infrastructure and update its content is
becoming more than I can spare.
So I'm looking for
some helpers to share the load. Maybe you'd like to spend an hour or
two each month updating the Events listings. Or perhaps you have a keen
ambition to edit the TechTips pages. The more sociable might like to
moderate one of the discussion areas in the Forum.
you can spare some time and could help I'd be delighted to hear from
you. Here's a (far from complete) list of the jobs that are up for
- Picture librarian
specialists (responsible for sections of the TechTips area
for Forum discussion areas
- Events editor
- Reporters/authors (to submit articles of interest to Maserati

very special treat was in store at GPLive when the one an only,
ex-Prince Bira OSCA V12 GP car made its public debut after a seven year
restoration by owner Peter Wuensch who was greatly enjoying himself!
full article on the restoration is planned. In the meantime you can
read a little more about the car (and see photos of the rest of it!)
a sight you won't see repeated too often - a full set of
Quattroportes from the latest, fifth incarnation back to the very
first. The opportunity arose at the Maserati Club's Spring meeting
earlier this year. It's the ultra-rare second series car that makes
this photo special. From Maserati's Citroen era, this car exists in
tiny numbers and was patiently tracked down by Edwin Faulkner who ist
trying to collect a full set of "QPs" for himself!
The happy owners (L-R) are: Drummond Bone, Yours Truly, Prag Mistry, Edwin Faulkner and John Bennett.
I have started
to update the Events listings
for this year - if you know of an event that other Maserati enthusiasts
should know about, please add it to the database using the on-line
form. If you are a club secretary or event organiser please
add details of your events on-line yourself. Event details will usually
appear on the site a day or two after details have been entered.
