Alfa Romeo Wins Mille Miglia

Here’s a rather belated race report, because this year is the 80th anniversary of the 1932 Mille Miglia. It was one lap of northern Italy: a thousand miles on public roads, without rest halts or stages, a race, not a rally. The course started from Brescia and ran via Bologna over two mountain passes to Rome, then back up the other side of the country.

You may not recognise every driver listed, but it’s worth looking at the results to see the pattern in the manufacturer column. The winner took 14hrs 55mins 19.4secs.

Pos Drivers Make cc

1 Borzacchini/Bignami Alfa Romeo 2366
2 Trossi/Brivio Alfa Romeo 2366
3 Scarfiotti/D’Ippolito Alfa Romeo 1750
4 Minoia/Balestrieri Alfa Romeo 1750
5 Carraroli/Ghersi Alfa Romeo 2366
6 Giulay/Venturi Alfa Romeo 1500
7 Santinelli/Berti Alfa Romeo 2366
8 Strazza/Gismondi Lancia 4000
9 Lurani/Canavesi Alfa Romeo 1500
10 Gazzabini/Dias Alfa Romeo 1750


Caracciola’s Alfa “collapsed” while leading, Nuvolari crashed his, and Campari’s co-driver Sozzi damaged theirs, resulting in Campari chasing him down the road with a wheel changing hammer. Had these three cars finished, that Lancia might have disappeared from the top ten.

I won’t post any pictures in case of copyright problems, but here’s a link to some.

The pics are at the bottom of their report; the fourth one looks like a Talbot but the rest are Alfas.
