1930 - Targa Florio - Luigi Arcangeli - DNF
The 1930 Targa Florio will always be remembered for the
titanic battle between Varzi and Chiron dueling for seven
hours -
Varzi the eventual winner with his Alfa defeating
Chiron in his Bugatti.

For the first time, the Maserati factory entered their new 185
hp 8C-2500 type 26M Grand Prix cars for team leader
Baconin Borzacchini and Luigi Arcangeli while Ernesto
Maserati and Luigi Fagioli had 2.0-liter 26B's.

The new cars were no match for the Alfa's and Bugatti's at
this race with Arcangeli crashing out on lap 2 and
Borzacchini finishing 11th. This Maserati did go on to be the
most successful car of the 1930 season though winning five
of the nine major races.
