The 1000 Miglia in Rome

The vintage cars arrived in Rome. There will be then the parade in Via Veneto among the fascinating Roman monuments. The regularity race is taking place at best, although the rain characterized some stages, from the heart of Tuscany, but without affecting the competition and the constant presence of thousands of women, men and children along the route.

Up to now, the ranking sees a tight battle for taking the lead among some of the favorite crews: the champions of 2016 and 2017 edition, Andrea Vesco and Andrea Guerini from Brescia driving the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato of 1929; Giovanni Moceri and Daniele Bonetti with the Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS of 1928; Andrea Belometti and Doriano Vavassori with the Lancia Lambda VIII Casaro series of 1929; Gianmario Fontanella and Anna Maria Covelli with the Lancia Lambda VII Casaro series of 1927; Juan Tonconogy and Barbara Ruffini with the Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 GS “Testa Fissa” of 1933.

The ranking of the female crews, participants in the Ladies’ Cup, sees among the favorites Silvia Marini and Francesca Ruggeridriving the Aston Martin 2 Liter Speed Model of 1936 and Franca Boni with Monica Barziza in a Lancia Aprilia 1500 of 1949.

At 6:30 tomorrow the third stage will start: from Rome to Parma.
