Alfa at Mille Miglia

Hot off the Alfa Romeo presses.

33 ALFA ROMEOS AT THE 22ND COMMEMORATIVE RUN OF THE 1000 MIGLIA

Eight cars from the Alfa Romeo Historical Museum will take part in the 22nd commemorative run of the 1000 Miglia, which will be held from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 May, starting and terminating in Brescia.

A large group of superb cars which will underline Alfa Romeo's record number of wins (no fewer than 12) in the race, twenty-four editions of which were disputed between 1937 and 1957. Fabrizio Giugiaro and Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy will be driving an Alfa 1900 Super Sprint of 1955, the European Touring champion Gabriele Tarquini and his team manager Monica Sipsz will be driving the Alfa 3000 CM of 1953 with bodywork by Colli which Juan Manuel Fangio competed with, and Renato Pozzetto and Renato Della Valle will compete in a 1900 Sport Spider of 1954. The remainder of the exceptional group of cars from the Alfa Romeo Museum are an Alfa Romeo 750 Competizione driven by Sylvia Oberti from California, a 1750 Super Sport of 1929 driven by the team Viaro-Mair, a 1500 Super Sport of 1928 for Claromont-Pecoroff, a 1900 C 52 Coupé of 1953 for Marx-Marx and a 2000 Sportiva for Magro-Magnalbò.

Although it is a commemorative run, the 1000 Miglia does draw up a leader board, based on the reliability trials dotted along the demanding 1600 km route, which is divided into three legs. The first starts from Brescia tomorrow (Thursday May 6) at 8.15 p.m. and concludes at midnight in Ferrara, from where the second leg will start at 7 a.m. on Friday May 7, concluding in Rome at 9.40 p.m. the same day. The last leg takes the teams from the capital (leaving at 6.30 a.m.) back to Brescia, arriving at 9.50 p.m. A difficult test for cars and drivers, but also a spectacular one, because the road crosses some of the loveliest parts of Italy.

Towns like Verona, Ferrara, Ravenna, the Republic of San Marino, Siena, Florence, Bologna, Modena, Cremona, Urbino and Rome, and areas of outstanding natural beauty like the Gole del Furlo, the Sibillini mountains and lake Vico.

It is a fascinating event that attracts huge crowds who will be able to admire the 375 competing cars, all built before 1957, the year the last 1000 Miglia was run. And no fewer than 33 of them will be Alfa Romeos.


VITTORIO EMANUELE DI SAVOIA, FABRIZIO GIUGIARO, GABRIELE TARQUINI, RENATO POZZETTO AND DIEGO DELLA VALLE IN THE 2004 'MILLE MIGLIA' WITH ALFA ROMEO

Alfa Romeo will participate in the 22nd edition of the 'Mille Miglia' with the official Alfa Romeo Vintage Car Team comprising 8 cars made available by the Alfa Romeo Vintage Car Museum. Among the team members, famous personalities such as Fabrizio Giugiaro and Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia with a 1900 Super Sprint dating back to 1955. Then, Gabriele Tarquini, the current European Touring Car Champion teamed up with Monica Sipsz, the Autodelta racing team manager, who will drive the 1953 3000 CM with bodywork designed by Colli, a car that Juan Manuel Fangio raced in. Another entry will see actor Renato Pozzetto and industrialist Diego Della Valle at the wheel of a sporty, yet at the same time elegant 1900 Sport Spider from 1954.

The team will also be able to count on other outstanding cars and drivers, with the 1750 Super Sport from 1929 (Viaro-Mair), the 1500 Super Sport from 1928 (Claromont-Pecoroff) and the 1900 C 52 Coupé from 1953 (Marx-Marx). Also in the line-up will be the 2000 Sportiva from 1954 (Magro-Magnalbò); an Alfa Romeo 750 Competizione model driven by Californian Sylvia Oberti, a car with a Giulietta chassis - this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Giulietta, which Alfa Romeo will celebrate with several events, activities and international rallies scheduled to be held in Milan from May 15 to June 20.

Sylvia Oberti, together with Alfa Romeo, is also a leading promoter of the Angelo dei Bimbi & Angelino charity project, the aim of which is to bring a smile to hospitalized children all over the world. In fact Alfa Romeo is more than happy to cooperate with Sylvia in this project, a driver who for eleven years now has participated in the world's most important races and rallies to raise funds for various charitable aims. From Italy to Japan, Argentina, Chile, the UK and United States: there's not a country that hasn't admired the determination of this girl, who was the first and only woman to complete the 'Mille Miglia' unaccompanied.

During the days of the 2004 'Mille Miglia' the public will be able to purchase the Angelino soft toy and children's book (in English and in Italian) 'The magic little red boat's journey' - 'Il viaggio della piccola magica barchetta rossa', about Angelino and the 'Driveress', written by Sylvia and illustrated by Jorge Ferrerya-Basso. Fans will also be able to buy a reproduction of the Angelo dei Bimbi aeroplane. The entire amount of offers and takings from sales of Angelo dei Bimbi & Angelino gadgets will be donated to a number of specialized Italian children's hospitals.

So there are many reasons to follow this 22nd edition of the 'Mille Miglia', which many people consider, and rightly so, 'the world's most prestigious itinerant museum'. In fact, participating in the historic sports event are cars of inestimable value that have written some of the most glorious pages in international motoring. At the start, 375 teams selected by the Organizing Committee from among 810 applications from 29 countries and representing 55 different car manufacturers. A difficult decision reached by applying rigorous qualitative criteria combined with frequency of participation that will see a considerable number of Alfa Romeo models in the line-up: 33 cars in all, including the official team and private entries.

Again this year there will be some route changes for the 'Mille Miglia', although these will still be based on routes used in the 24 editions of the race run between 1927 and 1957 (the record for number of victories is held by Alfa Romeo that won 12 trophies). In fact this endurance race will cover 1600 km, going through some of Italy's most attractive cities, for instance, Brescia, Verona, Ferrara, Ravenna, San Marino, Siena, Florence, Bologna, Modena, Cremona, Urbino and Rome. This 'prestigious caravan' will also pass through nature parks and uncontaminated countryside, such as the Furlo Gorge (after Urbino), the magnificent Sibillini Mountains and the Lake Vico nature reserve. In essence the itinerary will comprise three legs: from Brescia to Ferrara (May 6); from Ferrara to Rome (May 7); and lastly, from Rome to Brescia (May 8). The prize award ceremony for the 2004 'Mille Miglia' will take place on May 9.

So every edition of the 'Mille Miglia' is part race, part adventure, but certainly never the same as the previous one. This is the secret of an event that every year wins the admiration and warm support of a vast public: it's a clear sign that these cars still stir up strong emotions, even among the young fans crowding Italy's piazzas

Re: Alfa at Mille Miglia

It might be a long post, but it's not a real post. I don't count cut-and-paste jobs as real posts. That said, I knew there would be an audience for the post and the picture.

There are bigger versions/better resolution versions of the photo, but I didn't bother to download them since I knew the posting limits here.

Count me in.

But I might get a bit scared with you driving on the wrong side of the road!

A road trip with Hoygs, Sérgio and Toronto!

Wouldn't be quiet that's for sure.


Can I pick who I share a double bed with?

I immediately recognized this as copy paste work because Toronto's posts are usually a lot longer

Shouldn't we have left already?

Actually taking this virtual trip with you guys has been a blast. We're going to have to make it an annual event.

Re: Alfa at Mille Miglia

Hopefully, next year, one of us is able to afford a nifty piece of automotive history that'll qualify us for a spot in the range of competing vehicles. Now: that would be something.

Re: Alfa at Mille Miglia

As always, you're absolutely right Hoygs. That would be a nice way to go -- to watch an AO compete.

And on the off chance it happens, I'm calling shot-gun for the whole weekend right now.
