On behalf of everyone who loves classic cars and their values, TCCT wishes to thank Franco Gussalli Beretta, President, Alberto Piantoni, CEO, main responsible for the Event and the entire 1000 Miglia Srl team as well as the Automobile Club of Brescia, for demonstrating the strength and ability to organize a complex event across half of Italy to absolute perfection, particularly in this difficult moment for all of us.

Who wouldn’t want to drive on a road like this? Italy hides many and on the 1000 Miglia, they are controlled and protected by the precious service of the Traffic Police

Their scrupulous attention to every safety detail, including technical checks during the race, at meal breaks and at the most delicate points of the course, gave participants the necessary peace of mind to magnificently re-enact the most beautiful race in the world in 2020. This organization is a shining example of how Italy knows how to be both rigorous and capable whenever called upon.

The 1000 Miglia crosses a thousand Italian villages over four days of competitive driving. In each of them, love and a warm welcome

A recognition that also came from the many competitors who, until the last moment, feared that the dreams of racing would transform into a rude and ugly awakening. Thank you Mille Miglia, thank you Italy and congratulations to the winners, Roberto and Andrea Vesco, father and son racing with number 46 who, after travelling over 1700 km across half of Italy, took home the victory honours driving a 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato.

Many, many hours of driving and healthy fatigue are the most impassioned ingredients for those who participate
