Wednesday, May 16, I participated for the first time at the start of the famous classic car race: Le Mille Miglia.

This year, more than 800 people took part and 420 cars including vintage car enthusiasts, drivers and former of Formula 1 including Giancarlo Fisichella, Jacky Ickx and Walter Röhrl.

Fisichella raced in Formula 1 from 1996 to 2009 with Minardi, Jordan, Benetton, Sauber, Renault, Force India and Ferrari disputing 231 grand prizes. He won the Brazilian Grand Prix 2003, the 2005 Australian Grand Prix and the 2006 Malaysian Grand Prix. He took pole position in the Austrian Grand Prix 1998 in the 2005 Australian Grand Prix in the 2006 Malaysian Grand Prix. and in the Belgian Grand Prix 2009 and the fastest lap in the Spanish Grand Prix 1997 and 2005. He was also a test driver for Minardi in 1995 and for Ferrari in 1996, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Jacques Bernard Ickx, called Jacky (Brussels, 1 January 1945), is a former Belgian racing driver. He trained in motorcycling, then pursued himself to race for cars and Formula 2 cars, with whom he made his debut in the Formula 1 World Championship at the German Grand Prix of 1966; in the top series races up to 1979 disputing 116 Grand Prix races, obtaining 8 wins, 13 pole positions, 14 fast laps and 4 hat trick. A world champion in 1969, on Brabham, and in 1970, with Ferrari, he is considered one of the best drivers ever to have won the world title.

Walter Röhrl is a former German rally driver. Considered one of the greatest rally drivers of all time. Specialist on all types of terrain, he was nicknamed “King of Monte Carlo” after his four victories in that rally. He won his first title in 1980 with the Fiat 131 Abarth; while the 2nd two years later on Opel Ascona. He was the first pilot who managed to win two world titles. He made his debut in the mid 70s with the Opel team. It was in fact a European Rally Champion in 1974 with an Opel Ascona and with the same car won the first international race: Rally Acropolis, 1975.

Not only pilots and former pilots, to participate this year there is also Guy Berrymann the bass player of Coldplay.

 

A world event with participants from all over the world, a large majority of Germans, followed by Italians in second place, but the Swiss are not far behind. Due Ticinesi, the brothers Carlo and Ferruccio Nessi who participated in the race since 2004. Friends and relatives, I could not fail to cheer for them.

The race ends tomorrow, Saturday 19 May after having spent the traditional Brescia-Rome-Brescia route.
We will find out who the winner will be tomorrow. In the fractmo I show you to the machines that have hit my attention in particular. If I have to be honest it is not easy to choose the favorite car because they were all unique in their kind.
