The 1st electric car race
The 2019 edition of the 1000 Miglia Green, the first 1000 Miglia style regularity race for alternative-fuel cars, took place from 27th to 29th September in three legs along a total distance of about 250 km.
The first leg started on Friday evening from Piazza Paolo VI in Brescia and proceeded for 4 km within the historic city centre.
