Huge crowd greets the title-winning Maserati MC12

Crowds filled the streets and squares of Modena to greet World Champion Andrea Bertolini and his Maserati MC12.

The Sassuolo driver received the Modena Terra di Motori 2011 award from Mayor Giorgio Pighi and Councillor Daniele Sitta.

Bertolini, once he had made his acceptance speech, got behind the wheel of the MC12 and drove a route through the city cheered on by the watching public.

It was a fitting tribute for the Maserati MC12, a car that has collected 22 wins in the FIA GT and FIA GT1 World Championship since 2004. This run of form makes it the most successful Maserati of all time and Andrea Bertolini, the driver who has been able to get the best out of this thoroughbred racer, has picked up four championship titles along the way.
