La Maserati du Colonel 2nd edition
€39,95  
New, expanded edition
The fifth volume in the "Archives D'un Passionné" series in which Michel Bollée narrates the fascinating story of a Frenchman's quest for a Maserati victory at the 24 Heures Du Mans.

The Frenchman in question is Colonel Johnny Simone, a hero of World War II, motor racing enthusiast, and Maserati Concessionaire, who entered motor racing in the early Fifties, before giving up racing for the love of film actress Junie Astor. He became a flagship for Maserati, and never ceased in his attempts to revive the sporting past of the "Casa del Tridente" by racing one of its great cars: the unforgettable monster, the Tipo 151-002.

A man with boundless enthusiasm, he struggled alone in the hope of beating Ferrari. But the struggle was too unfair. Yet it was a beautiful page in the book of motor racing history.

Bollée tells us of Simone's quest in detail with an understandable fondness and affection, aided by a collection of stunning photographs, some of which are full page. I was delighted to add this book to my collection and no Maserati enthusiast should be without it.

_______

Héros de la seconde guerre mondiale, passionné de sport mécanique, Le Colonel John Horace Simone débuta dans la course automobile à l’aube des années cinquante, y renonçant quelques années plus tard par amour pour la comédienne Junie Astor. Devenu porte-drapeau de Maserati, il fit courir la tonitruante Tipo 151-002 en espérant ressusciter le passé sportif glorieux de la firme au Trident. Enthousiaste et tenace, Le Colonel Simone lutta seul, quatre années durant, avec l’espoir de battre Ferrari puis Ford. L’aventure de La Maserati du Colonel évoque une époque charnière des courses d’endurance, celle qui vit s’installer la suprématie des Ferrari à moteur arrière puis Ford engager d’énormes moyens pour s’imposer. Le temps des artisans était compté...
