Dix Mille Tours of Navarra 2011 - Trofeo Nastro Rosso

2-3 April 2011
Dix Mille Tours di Navarra 2011 - Trofeo Nastro Rosso
05/04/2011 -

If the six cars, which entered to the category reserved for Italian jewel, have turned out certainly few, the presence among them of a Maserati model Type 61 Birdcage, exhibited on the track by Carlo Vogele, has permitted to have a close look at one of the six models designed by Giulio Alfieri and properly considered as the best result achieved for the competitive cars with front engine. It’s sufficient to go close to the fine Italian “barchetta” to understand how highly refined this project was, aimed at obtaining a product which could dominate at Le Mans. Unfortunately, the fragility often shown prevented the achievement of this impressive result, but it’s necessary to remember that the Birdcage has dominated a good twice at 1000 km of Nürburgring.Even in Navarra the Trident car has not had trouble to dominate in both races after its Pole Position. Since the first race a fine Maserati 250S with Davis has been out of the competition, the second place was prerogative of Bizzarrini 5300 with Erlich, while as for the podium low step, at least in race 1, we have been spectators at an exciting duel between two Ferraris 275 GTB with Noblet and Gijzen, ended at few laps to the finish by the first driver. In race 2, the absence of the two cars of the prancing horse, has allowed small Alfa Romeo TZ of Guitteny to win the third place.
