Hot on the heels of its track-only version of the MC20, Maserati has announced it will build a true competition version of the car to compete in the Fanatec GT2 European Series Championship from 2023.
According to the company, its return to the track in GT competitions represents the ideal link between the brand’s new era and the wins achieved by the frequently victorious MC12 in the FIA GT Championships from 2004 to 2010.
Davide Grasso, Maserati CEO, explained, “We are driven by our passion, both on the road and on the track. We have a long history of world excellence in motorsport, and we are extremely proud to race with the extraordinary MC20. Racing has always been Maserati’s natural habitat and now, both in the Fanatec GT2 European Series Championship and in the Formula E Championship, this brand is making a new start from its roots to build the future.”
Jean-Marc Finot, SVP at Stellantis Motorsport (under whose remit Maserati falls), explained, “Maserati Corse is bringing the link between the Formula E factory program and our road cars with the MC20 GT2. This new step is completing the legacy and the legitimacy of Maserati in motorsport. The MC20 is a fantastic road-legal car. We are happy that our passionate customer will enjoy racing with it.”
