A2-Series: Claudia Hürtgen (Ferrari) untouchable!

The first win of the 14th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Sunday morning in the A2-Series, went to Claudia Hürtgen, who had already won in 2022. In addition to a laurel wreath and an original “Antoine le Pilote” figurine representing Juan Manuel Fangio, the highly experienced German driver was welcome on the podium by Ruben Fangio, son of the five-time Argentine world champion.

It was a race for front-engined Grand Prix cars built before 1961, and at the wheel of her 1960 Ferrari 246 Dino, entered by Methusalem Racing, the former F3 and GT driver gave no chance or hope to the big guys following her. “I got off to a very good start and then focused on not making any mistake”, she explained. After nine laps, Claudia Hürtgen finished 20 seconds ahead of Marino Franchitti (brother of three-time Indy 500 winner Dario), in a Maserati 250F, and Anthony Wood (Tec-Mec). Belgian actor Stéphane de Groodt took an excellent 6th place and the other female driver in the race, Niamh Wood, finished mid-table in 14th place.
