The second day of the 1000 Miglia 2019 is coming to the end with the arrival in Rome. Right after a quick lunch break, the vintage cars departed from Fabriano. The lag than headed toward Rome going through Assisi, Perugia, Terni and Rieti. The cars entered the Italian capital at 8.30 p.m. for the traditional Time Control and a motorcade on Rome’s prestigious Via Veneto.
Today it was a long and demanding stage, between climbs and hairpin bends, but also suggestive historical and naturalistic glimpses. The heads-up is now consolidated among the three favorite crews: Moceri-Bonetti; Vesco-Guerini and Tonconogy-Ruffini, with the first two teams at a marginal detachment from each other.
At the end of the precision test 57 – Gualdo Tadino 10, the provisional ranking marked these positions: at the top of the ranking Andrea Vesco – Andrea Guerini (Team Villa Trasqua), with an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato of 1929; in second place the duo Giovanni Moceri and Daniele Bonetti (Alfa Romeo Team), in an Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS of 1928; and always in third position the Bugatti Type 40 of 1927 driven by Juan Tonconogy and Barbara Ruffini.
As for the Coppa delle Dame, Franca Boni and Monica Barziza in a 1949 Lancia Aprilia 1500, led the provisional ranking, with 10184 points and the 46th overall placement.
