The new Maserati, codenamed the MCC, that will take part in the FIA GT Championships has made its track debut at the Fiorana circuit in Italy.

The new car, closely derived from the new Maserati MCS, was designed in a joint operation between the Maserati engineers and those of Modena company's racing department under the technical direction of engineer, Giorgio Ascanelli.

Driven by the Ferrari-Maserati group's test driver, Andrea Bertolini, the car completed a limited number of laps although no lap times were recorded. Most of the day was spent doing a general technical check on the car.

Gestione Sportiva Managing Director, Jean Todt, was pleased to see the car on the track.

"This is a very important programme for Maserati, which the Racing Department has tackled with great enthusiasm," he said. "Today, we have witnessed the MCC's track debut and as usual on these occasions, it was a really emotional moment."

Testing at Fiorano will continue today [Tuesday] ahead of the cars official launch at the International Geneva Motorshow.
