Presentation of the 1000 Miglia Warm Up USA 2019

The presentation of the second edition of 1000 Miglia Warm Up USA was held today at the Italian Embassy in Washington DC. It will take place from the 23rd to 26th October 2019, in partnership with the Italian Embassy in Washington, Alfa Romeo and Chopard.

The event is only open to a maximum of 40 vintage cars that meet 1000 Miglia’s eligibility requirements and a limited number of Supercars.

The programme includes four days of driving and time-trials with the aim to involve the participants in a compelling sporting experience in the “Spirit of 1000 Miglia”.

Regularity race competitors will also be offered the opportunity of adding a full day dedicated to a real “Warm Up”: Tuesday, 22nd October will be a training day for those who, never having taken part before in the 1000 Miglia, will have an overview of the rules and activities that characterize the participation in the most beautiful race in the world.

During the four days, the participating cars will travel over 800 miles through some of the most evocative and iconic areas of Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland to then reach the heart of Washington DC: thanks to the hospitality of the Italian Ambassador to the United States, Armando Varricchio, the event will end on Italian soil with the prize giving ceremony hosted in the prestigious Residenza Villa Firenze in Rock Creek Park.
