1987: The 1000 Miglia returns every year

A new chapter, the same legendary spirit

After the success of the biennial editions, there could only be one answer: since 1987 the “Spring Race” would be back every year. The rebirth of the Red Arrow was now complete.

1987: a new start

On the day of the sealing ceremony, Piazza della Vittoria turned into a living room. Here Bruno Boni, the Mayor of the 1000 Miglia and later President of the Chamber of Commerce, received illustrious guests, just as in all the post-war editions. At the start, Lorella Cuccarini led the many stars that walked on the platform, stealing the flashes of photographers from the Prince of Kent.

After the Brescia-Rome-Brescia race, victory went to a Formula 1 driver: Alessandro Nannini, that until today, is the only professional driver to have won the 1000 Miglia.

1988: the rise of the Red Arrow

1988 was a turning point: from the biennial organization, supported by a voluntary service, it became necessary to set up a permanent structure with permanent employees, able to guarantee the annual scheduling of the event.

Good results soon arrive: the new 1000 Miglia began an ascent that led it to be recognized as “the most beautiful race in the world”. While the legendary events of the speed race editions remained unique and Brescia became known worldwide as “the city of the 1000 Miglia”.

A long-lasting success

Between Automobile Club Brescia and Marva Srl, the company set up by the organizers, a contract was signed that provided for the entrusting of the 1000 Miglia for four-year periods.

After the 1989 edition, known as the year of uninterrupted rainfall and with the President of the Italian Republic Francesco Cossiga attending the sealing ceremony, the Nineties began under the sign of communication.

One only needs to think of the 1.500 information workers that arrive in Brescia from all over the world.

1000 Miglia in the world

Thanks to its fame, the Red Arrow attracts fans from all over the world, extending well beyond Brescia. It is such a great success that, during the Nineties, the phenomenon led to the creation of many independent international events, appointments and initiatives inspired by the 1000 Miglia.

  • 1991: the “American Friends of the Mille Miglia” club is founded and, since the 1990s, it has organized a motoring event called “California Mille”. 
  • 1992: a race called “La Festa Mille Miglia” continues to be held in Japan.
  • 1996: the “Mil Millas Sport de la República Argentina” started again, an Italian-Argentine co-production of organizers and fans, who resumed the traditional race that was held in Argentina in the Forties.

Museo della Mille Miglia

In 2004, in the ancient Monastery of S. Eufemia della Fonte in Brescia, the Mille Miglia museum was inaugurated thanks to a group of enthusiasts who financed the restoration of the monastery and the setting-up of the museum.

The Automobile Club of Brescia, in addition to taking an active part as a member of the Association that runs the Museum, made available the Historical Archive of the 1000 Miglia, which it owns.

The management and the organization of the Red Arrow

The management of the Miglia by Marva Srl ended in 2007: the Automobile Club of Brescia announced a tender for the 5 year assignment of the management of all operations marked by the Red Arrow.

ATI (Associazione Temporanea d’Imprese) made up of MAC Group Srl, Meet Communication Srl and Sanremorally Srl won the tender and management ended in 2012 with the holding of the 30th edition of the Race.

Since 2013, the organization of the race and the management of the brand and licenses have been handled directly by the Automobile Club of Brescia, through its subsidiary 1000 Miglia Srl, an in-house company wholly owned by the organization.

The route of the “traveling museum”

If the number of entry applications increases year after year, the route, except for a few variations, is always the same. An itinerary that, respecting the original roads, the journey continues to represent one of the best promotions of Italy and its excellences.

The Red Arrow: a symbol rich in history

In designing the “red arrow” with white writing, in order to indicate the race path, Renzo Castagneto could not have thought that, at the beginning of the third millennium, his symbol would have continued to indicate what is still the “most beautiful race in the world”.

An event with very different characteristics from the original speed race, which continues to be a prestigious, internationally known and loved brand.

All the organizers of the 1000 Miglia

From the 1000 Miglia speed race to the re-enactment of the vintage car Race, there have been many organizers and promoters over the years. Personalities who have been able to enrich each edition with a pioneering spirit and a passion for excellence.

1927 – 1940 (except 1939): Royal Automobile Club of Brescia.

1947 – 1957: Automobile Club of Brescia.

1958 – 1961 (Editions with Rally formula, except 1960): Automobile Club of Brescia.

1967 (“10 Miglia” Re-enactment): Musical Watch Veteran Car Club Brescia.

1968 (Historical Re-enactment for the launch of the Alfa Romeo 1750): Alfa Romeo S.p.A.

1977 (Historical Re-enactment): M. W. V. C. Club and ACI Brescia.

1982 2007 (except 1983 e 1985, Historical Commemoration): Marva Srl under licence from ACI Brescia.

2008 2012 (Historical Re-enactment): A.T.I. under licence from ACI Brescia.

Since 2013 (Historical Re-enactment): 1000 Miglia Srl, in-house company of Automobile Club of Brescia.
