Skelton vs Skelton: The Ultimate Point to Point Race

Skelton vs Skelton: The Ultimate Point to Point RaceIn the build up to the Grand National Festival, Maserati GB decided to go back to the roots of the festival and set up the ultimate Point to Point horse racing challenge, pitting Maserati’s first ever SUV – the Levante -- against a horse. The challenge provided another competitive twist as it was a race between two brothers; National Hunt Trainer and Maserati ambassador Dan Skelton got behind the wheel of the new Maserati Levante 3.0 diesel while National Hunt Jockey Harry Skelton took the reins of former Point-to-Pointer Dinnie O.
 
Following the rules of historical point-to-point racing, Dan and Harry were tasked with travelling between two set points on the grounds of Chavenage House Estate, in the Cotswolds, as fast as possible. The nature of the race and the course allowed the Levante to showcase its 4x4 capabilities, having to navigate through rough terrain that was unsuitable for horseback.
