A light rain greeted the cars of the 1000 Miglia 2019, departing at 7:00 am from Bologna towards Brescia. This is a decisive day, the one of the fourth and final leg.
At the moment, Giovanni Moceri and Daniele Bonetti (Team Alfa Romeo) are at the top of the rankings, in a 1928 Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS, with 67910 points. In second place the team of Andrea Vesco and Andrea Guerini (Team Villa Trasqua), with an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato of 1929, with 67296 points and a gap of 614 points. In third place, with 66525 points, Juan Tonconogy and Barbara Ruffini, in a Bugatti Type 40 of 1927.
Today’s first part of the leg is going through the city of Modena, which is also hosting the first edition of the Motor Valley Fest, to then proceed towards Reggio Emilia, Langhirano and Parma, where the last race lunch will take place in the charming setting of Palazzo Ducale.
Once the stop-over is finished, the cars will then head towards Busseto, to then leave Emilia Romagna, entering the heart of the Pianura Padana, passing through Cremona, Carpenedolo, Montichiari and Travagliato, before crossing the finish line in Brescia at around 4:00 pm.
In Brescia, the cars will then close the race, after the Time Check at the end of the leg, parading, as tradition, along Viale Venezia, after 1801 kilometres.
The programme will continue with the traditional awards ceremony, which will take place in Piazza Vittoria from 7:00 pm. To close this beautiful 37th re-enactment of the 1000 Miglia, there will be a closing party, “1000 Miglia The Night”.
