The magnificent historic cars of the 1000 Miglia have just passed the 2000 kilometers mark and, at the end of five stages that are as demanding as they are fascinating, the last Time Trials, four Passage Controls and two Time Controls remain to be tackled. Andrea Vesco and Fabio Salvinelli in their 1929 Alfa Romeo 6c 1750 Zagato will have to defend first place in the classification from Fontanella and Covelli in their 1927 Lancia Lambda Spider Type 221 and Belometti Bergomi in the same model but from 1929.
After the departure of the first car from Corso Sempione at 7.30 a.m., the convoy passed in front of the Automobile Club headquarters for a Passage Control. Before leaving the city, there was also space for the last act of the Air Force Centenary celebrations at the headquarters of the First Air Region. After 8 concatenated Time Trials in the Treviglio area, there will be a passage through Stezzano and the Kilometro Rosso innovation district, Europe’s leading private scientific and technological pole.
Unmissable is the stop in Bergamo, Capital of Culture 2023 together with Brescia, which will host the last Time Trials of the event within the walls of the Upper City, which, together with the first Trials in the Castle, will award the Trophy dedicated to “Bergamo Brescia Italian Capital of Culture 2023”. Passing by the southern coast of Lake Iseo, the crews will head towards Brescia via Provaglio, Ospitaletto, Rodengo Saiano and Gussago, where they will have the last Passage Control.
The cars will arrive in Brescia for the customary sea of people during the parade on the Viale Venezia platform.
