C-Series : British Belles on top!

The C-Series of the 14th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is the only one devoted to two-seater sports cars, provided they have a front engine and were built between 1952 and 1957.

There were 38 competitors at the start on Friday, and it was hard to make any predictions about pole position or the race, given the strength of the field: a dozen Maseratis, several Ferraris, Jaguars, Aston Martins and Lotuses, as well as Listers, Frazer-Nashes and Connaughts, a Kieft, an Osca and an Allard. Brands that have now disappeared, but that are still very much alive in the Principality, every two years. They are all in a perfect state of preservation, because their owners, mostly gentlemen drivers, are deeply in love with them, and ready to make any sacrifice to give them eternal youth.

There was a short break in the session, after 7 minutes, then the dance resumed and the match between Italy and Great Britain was won by the British Belles: Fréderic Wakeman’s Cooper-Jaguar T38, who broke the 2-minute per lap barrier (1:59.770), will be on pole position on Sunday, same as in 2022, with the superb Jaguar D-Type of Austrian Niklas Halusa on his side. Behind them, in the hunt for a podium or more, will be the Maserati 250S of Richard Wilson and the Lotus MKX of Max Smith-Hilliard.
