Vesco and Guerini on the top of the rank
From Rome, the convoy passed through Ronciglione, Vico and Viterbo Lake, to the fortress at Radicofani, and then plunging into the heart of Tuscany. After the inspection in Piazzale Michelangelo in Firenze, Mille Miglia travelled through Futa Pass and Raticosa Pass, and onwards to Bologna, Modena, Anzola dell’Emilia, Reggio Emilia, and Parma, the end of the leg.
For the trip through Futa and Raticosa Passes, thousands of auto fans crowded together, along with those in Mugello for the Motorcycle Grand Prix, who warmly cheered on the procession of vintage cars.
Italians are still in the lead in Mille Miglia. In first place are Andrea Vesco and Andrea Guerini, with 42,920 points, driving an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato made in 1931, while in second place we have Luca Patron and Elena Scaramuzzi, at the wheel of an O.M. 665 Superba Sport 2000 CC from 1926, with 41,833 points. Ezio Martino Salviato and Maria Caterina Moglia are in third place in a Bugatti T 40 from 1928, with 40,624 points. Fourth place is taken by the crew of Alessandro Gamberini and Gaetano Derosa, in an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato from 1930, with 40,238 points. Finally, in fifth place are Giordano Mozzi and Stefania Biacca, in an Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 Gran Sport from 1933, with 40,053 points.
