Description

At twenty-three Marco Piccinini had  the honor of building the first  F3 car in Monaco. He did this with the assistance of an engineer called  Nosetto  who was “sporting director of Ferrari from 1977 to 1988.

In 1973 he founded,  together with banker and engineer,  Carlo Pesenti the Monegasque Société des Automobiles Costructions, which started designing and building the MP F3 between Rome and Monaco.  The components of the car,  thanks to the knowledge of Piccinini were made in France, Switzerland, Japan and  England, then subsequently  assembled in part in Rome and then in the Principality of Monaco.

In the beginning of 1974 it was  tested at Vallelunga by Charles George who  also participated in the  races Magione, Vallelunga and Monza in preparation for the Monaco Formula 3 Grand Prix, where the car had been submitted a few days before to Prince Rainier in the courtyard of his palace. Sadly, the car did not finish and hit the barrier.

After  decades of  neglect the car was  found in Rome Gigi Taverna of  Racing and Classic Cars who meticularly restored the car to its former glory. It then competed  in the Grand Prix of Monte Carlo in the Formula 3 class in 2014. The car comes with a Toyota Novamotor which is new and a revised FT 200 gearbox and is ready to race.
