The routes, the drivers and the cars: the protagonists of the first speed races
«Crazy, exhausting, non-stop racing, through countryside and cities, on the mountains and by the sea, day and night. Roads that wind under the roaring cars, eyes that do not close in sleep, faces that do not tremble, drivers with nerves of steel.»Giuseppe Tonelli, 1927
The description by the journalist Giuseppe Tonelli, published on “La Stampa” on March 27 1927, perfectly captures the essence of the first 24 editions of the race. Tales that one never tires of reading and telling.
