1958 Maserati 250F Kavanagh / Taramazzo

Italian Luigi Taramazzo raced in 1950s mainly in Italian sportscar racing. Probbaly his greatest success was the victory in the 1958 Mille Miglia sharing a Ferrari GT Berlinetta with Gerino Gerini.   His only attempt to enter Formula one was at 1958 Monaco Grand Prix. It was not the best option to start F1 career because only 16 drivers out of 31 entries would start the race. Taramazzo drove Maserati 250F entered by Australian Moto GP rider Ken Kavanagh, and was not able to set a lap time, being non-qualifier. Kavanagh in the same car was 18th in the qualifying, also outside of first 16. Later Taramazzo continued to race sporadically until the early 1970s. For instance, he had couple of starts in the World Championship of Makes in 1971-72. The model is conversion of Maserati 250F from Maserati Collection.
