Are you ready for the 2023 1000 Miglia? The most prestigious classic car race in the world is back with a bang! The organizers have just announced the 405 cars that will take part in this edition, and they are all amazing. Let me tell you some of the highlights.
First of all, Alfa Romeo fans will be delighted to see 47 of their favorite cars on the road, including some rare and beautiful models from the 1940s. But they are not the only ones: there will also be some gems from other Italian brands, such as O.S.F.A., Ermini, Stanguellini, Moretti, Paganelli, Gilco and Bandini. And how about a 1929 Itala, one of the oldest cars in the race?
Of course, there will also be plenty of speed and power from the likes of Bugatti, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz and O.S.C.A. But don’t underestimate the small cars: Goliath, Fiat and Renault will also show their charm and character.
The competition will be fierce, as always. The reigning champions Vesco-Salvinelli will try to make history by winning their third 1000 Miglia in a row. But they will have to face some tough opponents, such as Belometti-Bergomi, Turelli-Turelli, Patron, Aliverti-Valente, Fontanella-Covelli and Sisti-Gualandi. And let’s not forget Matteo Belotti, who won the Coppa delle Alpi 2023. There will also be some famous names among the drivers, such as Franco Gussalli Beretta, President of Confindustria Brescia, and Roberto Rollino, who won the 1000 Miglia in 1988.
The race will be longer than ever this year: five days and over 2000 km across Italy. The route will include some new destinations, such as Piedmont and Milan. The start will be on June 13th from Brescia, and the finish will be on June 17th in Milan. In between, there will be stops in Cervia-Milano Marittima, Rome and Parma.
If you love classic cars and adventure, you won’t want to miss this event. The 2023 1000 Miglia will be a celebration of history, beauty and passion. We’ll share updates as they become available!
