Zwycięstwo (Moss/ Gurney) w 1000km Nürburgring (D).


Tipo 61 „Bird-cage” entered into Le Mans by Camoradi.
AFTER ITS WIN in the Nurburgring 1,000km race when driven by Moss, the Camoradi-entered 2,890 c.c. " bird-cage " Maserati, of which three are entered, must rank as one of the pre-race favourites. Also, driven by Moss, this car, it will be recalled, built up a 30-mile lead after eight hours' racing at Sebring, before it was eliminated by gearbox trouble. It is quite one of the ugliest sports cars ever produced, but it has several intriguing features. The space frame is built up of a multitude of small diameter tubes, and a low bonnet height is achieved by installing the engine at an angle of 45deg. This has enabled the regulation height of windscreen to be obtained with a comparatively low overall height. The rear end with the five-speed, transversely mounted gearbox in unit with the final drive and de Dion rear axle is derived from the Maserati 250F Grand Prix car.
