A birdcage Maserati runs in anger at Virginia International Raceway. Called a birdcage because of it's frame style, cars like this ran at VIR during the late 50's and early 60's. They run again at various vintage events at the track. For more info on VIR, located in southern Virginia near Danville, go to http://virclub.com.
Below is a Maserati 450S. Carroll Shelby won the very first race at VIR in August 1957 in a similar car.
