There is a growing anticipation at Alfa Romeo’s headquarters for the 36th edition of the Mille Miglia race.
This year, in addition to being at the forefront as an Automotive Sponsor, the brand will celebrate the 90th anniversary of its first victory in this legendary competition, won by Giuseppe Campari and Giulio Ramponi with the 6C 1500 Super Sport, an absolute masterpiece of mechanical design.
Described as the “most beautiful race in the world", the race will follow the traditional route from 16th to 19th May, starting from Brescia, stopping in Cervia-Milano Marittima, Roma and Parma.
Competing in this year's race will be several wonderful classic Alfa Romeo cars from the FCA Heritage collection: from the 6C 1500 SS to the 6C 1750 GS, and from the 1900 SS to the 1900 Sport Spider.
Alongside these rarities, a fleet of 30 Giulia and Stelvio cars will be available, the finest expression of the new Alfa Romeo generation, to experience in an original way the race and at the same time discover the Alfa Romeo racing legend.
To re-create the atmosphere of a such an emotional competition, the Alfa Romeo History Musuem in Arese (Milan) will host the “11 volte campione” [11 times champion] exhibition, from 19th May until December.
Also on 19th May, for the first time its history, the Arese site will be welcoming a stage of the Mille Miglia, enabling the cars taking part, to compete in time trials on the museum's internal track (more info on www.museoalfaromeo.com).
Drivers Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc from the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, currently taking part in the 2018 Formula 1 championship, will also be present. Their participation is a tangible sign of how vigorous the racing world is engraved in the Alfa Romeo DNA.
