Maserati finished the 24 Hours of Spa with four cars in the top seven places.
It was another solid display of the Modenese cars’ reliability and performance in a race where the outcome was affected by wet weather.
The Vitaphone Racing Team can feel a little regret at the second place taken Bartels/Biagi/Van de Poele/Lamy as the crew was leading by a lap just 58 minutes from the end. However, the expert Belgian spun on the slippery surface during an especially heavy downpour. He finished up in the sand and lost the lead and a lap because of the time it took to fish him out. The car, long in second, had moved into first place as the eighteenth hour struck.
