Franco-Italian pre-war racers head to 75MM
An all-new race for French and Italian pre-war Grand Prix and Voiturette machines has joined the roster for the 75th Members’ Meeting (75MM).
Taking place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit on 18th and 19th March, the Varzi Trophy is named in honour of Italian superstar Achille Varzi, who switched from motorcycles to cars in the late 1920s and achieved great success for Alfa Romeo, Auto Union and Bugatti during the 1930s. The race will form part of the 12-race programme during the Springtime spectacular.
Catering for cars that competed up to 1939, the race will feature a line-up of racers from Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Delahaye, Maserati and Talbot-Lago.
Members and racegoers at the 75MM, the fourth of the Motor Circuit’s recreations of the 71 period BARC Members’ Meetings, will be able to ogle 8C 2300 and 2600 Monzas, and P3 Tipo Bs from Alfa Romeo.
Meanwhile, all the important racing Bugattis, Types 35, 35B, 51 and 59/50B, a Delahaye 135S and classic Maseratis in the form of 4CM, 4CS, 6CM, 8CL, 8CM and V8 RI and a T150C from Talbot-Lago, will also make an appearance.
