13/05 - MILLEMIGLIA LAKE GARDA 2020
The 1000 Miglia is one of the most famous historical races in the world. The cities that will become the background and protagonists will obviously be Brescia, Desenzano sul Garda, Sirmione, Valeggio sul Mincio, starting from Brescia and crossing the suggestive Sigurtà Garden Park.
The last section of the 1000 Miglia on 16 May will see the return to Brescia for the traditional and triumphant walkway in Viale Venezia.
At the starting line there will be 400 cars this year, thirty fewer than last year, in order to guarantee greater safety and quality of services to the crews in the race. The cars will be selected by a special commission from those previously registered on the website www.registro1000miglia.it, by the closing date of the registrations for the 1000 Miglia 2020. The opening date of the registrations will be communicated shortly.
Here is the path:
Wednesday 13 May, from Brescia, the convoy of historic cars will cross the suggestive municipalities of Lake Garda, Desenzano and Sirmione, and will gradually pass from Villafranca of Verona, Mantua, Ferrara and Ravenna to conclude the first day of race in Cervia - Milan Marittima.
From Cesenatico, the next day we will descend to Urbino, Fabriano, Macerata, Fermo and Ascoli Piceno to then enter the areas that still bear the signs of the 2016 earthquake, passing through Macerata, Fermo, Ascoli Piceno and Amatrice. From Rieti, vintage cars will arrive in Rome where, after the usual parade through the streets of the Eternal City, they will conclude the second stage on the always exciting catwalk in via Veneto.
Going up from Lucca, the cars will leave Tuscany crossing the Passo della Cisa, and then make a stop in Parma, the Italian capital city of Culture 2020, which will welcome the crews for the last night of the race.
Saturday 16 May, the fourth and final day will see the passage from Salsomaggiore Terme, from the village of Castell'Arquato (Piacenza), from Cernusco sul Naviglio, the town in the province of Milan recently named European City of Sport 2020 and then from Bergamo, first to end the competition on the arrival platform of Viale Venezia in Brescia, where it all began 93 years earlier, in 1927, with the first 1000 Miglia Cup.
