Maserati Tipo 60 and 61- Magnificent Front-Engined Birdcarge
In 1959, while Ferrari and Aston Martin battled for supremacy in the World Sports Car Championship, Maserati returned to the racing scene with an amazing sports racer, revolutionary in concept: the 2-liter Tipo 60. The car received the nickname ‘Birdcage' because of the design of its chassis and was immediately successful. The 3-liter version, the Tipo 61, appeared soon after, in response to demand from the many private owners and drivers determined to make the Ferraris eat dust. Twenty-two front-engined Birdcage Maseratis campaigned in a vast number of races during the nine-year period between 1959 and 1967. Light and fast, by 1967 they had accumulated almost 170 victories.
The new book is a complete history of the car during those years and, for the first time, includes the many Birdcage appearances in European events. The book also contains first-hand anecdotes by Bill Krause, Chuck Daigh, Jim Jeffords as well as great images taken by professional photographers such as Flip Schulke and Bob Tronolone, and photographs from the personal collections of the owners and drivers, many of them previously unpublished.
