C-Series: Lotus beats Maserati

The insatiable British marque, founded by Colin Chapman, continued its raid on Sunday at the 14th Grand Prix Historique de Monaco by winning the C-Series after the D and E Series earlier in the day. This C-Series, again this year, bore the name of Vittorio Marzotto and dedicated to front-engined sports cars from 1952 to 1957. Surprised at the start, Max Smith-Hilliard led a superb comeback at the wheel of his Lotus MK X, which was at the top of the timesheets on Friday afternoon. His daring driving was marked by two very aggressive manoeuvres which were studied at length by the race directors: the first on Richard Wilson’s Maserati 250 S at the Casino turn, the second at the Portier bend, when he dived on the apex. With his rivals out of the way, the Briton in the Graham Hill tribute helmet was on course for victory, far ahead of Claudia Hürtgen, who started from 4th on the grid. She was very attentive in her Maserati 300 S and finished in 2nd place, taking her second podium finish of the day after her win in the A2-Series. The podium was completed by Niklas Halusa in a 1954 Jaguar D-Type.
