Mille Miglia Race 2010 in Italy: the Historic Motor Racing

The 83rd edition of the most beautiful and striking race in the world is ready to start once again: the Mille Miglia!

Dear cars and engine world addicted, this time you will lose your head! So let’s see some of the race numbers: this year we find 375 cars in the race preceded by 130 vintage Ferraris built since 1958 ‘til nowadays, which will run on the road from May 6th to 9th 2010.

There will certainly be the presence of the Ministers Franco Frattini and Stefania Prestigiacomo and many famous personages among the competitors such as racing car drivers, Olympic athletes, actors, entrepreneurs and…obviously fabulous cars: 51 different models from 34 different countries.

The wonderful vintage cars will be driven by famous people such as the singer Jay Kay of the group Jamiroquai, a renowned cars addicted and collector, Nick Mason, the great drummer of Pink Floyd, the skier Kristian Ghedina, the actress Anna Kanakis, the royal Leopoldo of Baviera and the Prince Bernhard Lucas Emmanuel…and many others!

As usual, the arrival is scheduled in Rome for Friday May 7th 2010, a very spectacular event! The first Ferrari probably will arrive in Rome at 6.40 pm, and after a long parade at Castel Sant’Angelo, the cars will be hedged in Villa Borghese until the following morning, when they will leave again towards the city of Brescia (near Milan, Region of Lombardy) for the arrival scheduled for the evening, on Saturday May 8th.

The symbols of historic motor racing will go across all the Italian peninsula, but this time the path will undergo some variations, and the stop of Bologna will substitute Ferrara, in order to make all the cities crossed by historical Mille Miglia be protagonists in turn.

In addition, the new itinerary will reach Casal Maggiore, Manerbio, Urbino and Buonconvento, passing by the wonderful and striking city of Spoleto.

So, dear vintage cars addicted, see you soon on the Italian roads between Brescia and Rome!
