Starrabba's Lotus 8 Maserati still races!
Would that be an EIGHTEEN, rather than an EIGHT? And is it red, I hope?

Starrabba’s name was quite well-known in Italian sportscar events in the 1950s and 60s, especially in Sicily and the South, and usually in the 2-litre class. He competed with a Lancia Aurelia in 1953, at the age of 20, and later raced Ferrari, Maserati and Porsche. With Ferraris he twice won his class in the Targa Florio, in 1957 with Cortese in a 500TR and eight years later with Ravetto in a GTO. He also won the 1955 Trofeo Sardo (Maserati) and the 1957 Monte Pellegrino hillclimb (Ferrari) and was second at Caserta three times, in 1956 (Maserati), 1959 (Porsche) and 1960 (Porsche), winning his class of the Naples race in 1960 as well. Other placings in these years included third in the 1956 Circuito di Sassari and in the following year’s Shell Trophy race at Monza, plus second in class in the 1957 Berlin GP at the Avus on a rare sortie outside Italy.

Euhhmmm.... sure it's an 18, my fault. It is indeed red, with white wheels. The French guy who drove it was very careful and dabbled around at low revs and low speed. But it ran. He was, in fact, very surprised to meet anyone who had ever heard of Starrabba. I couldn't get to much details because my French isn't what it should be, I'm afraid
