12th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique
23 - 25 April 2021
Race C : Fierro-Eleta makes it two wins out of two races
Driving two different Maseratis, a 250 F in Race B, then a 300 S in Race C, Guillermo Fierro-Eleta won two races on Sunday at Grand Prix Historique de Monaco, but the second win was slightly more difficult to take, because of a handful of very quick English cars. In this race reserved to front-engine sport cars having raced between 1952 and 1957, Fierro-Eleta first benefited from an excess of optimism by David Hart, who had started in pole aboard another Maserati 300 S and lead the first two laps… until he arrived a bit too fast at la Rascasse and hit the wall, damaging his front left suspension in the process and choosing to get back to the pits right away.
Behind the 60-year-old entrepreneur, the podium was completed by two Jaguars, Niklas Halusa’s Type D, with its shark wing, and Belgian Nicolas Bert’s Type C. Last but not least, the one and only female driver in that race, Germany’s Katarina Kyvalova, started in 4th position and finished an excellent 5th, at the wheel of her Cooper-Jaguar T33. The Trophies were handed, on the podium, by Christophe Allgeyer, the Vice-Commissioner General of Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM).
