This year the popular Italian regularity race for classic and vintage cars will be crossing Tuscany on May 20th. The route as always is the Brescia-Rome round trip starting on May 18th and concluding on the 21st. Four legs in all with Tuscany included in the third: Rome-Parma.
The race will be crossing our beautiful territory through Radicofani, Siena, Montecatini Terme and Pistoia and leaving via the Passo dell’Abetone.
A re-enactment of the original Mille Miglia, held from 1927 to 1957, in the last 30 and more years the event has combined tradition with innovation and been bringing to public attention the typical Italian elegance, breathtaking sceneries and enviable way of life.
To be eligible to take part in the race, the car models must have had at least one specimen participate in the original speed races from 1927 to 1957, or at least complete the registration formalities. A mathematical formula is then used to carefully consider year of design together with the technical, sporting and historical features of each individual model, added to partial coefficients such as period, class and category. Not an easy application.
So if you are anywhere near the abovementioned Tuscan locations on May 20th don’t lose a lifetime opportunity to sit outside an osteria and enjoy the passage of those daredevils in their magnificent vintage cars while enjoying a glass of Tuscan wine.
