Saturday May 18th the participants of the 2013 Mille Miglia returned to Brescia. Well, most of them did. The 1,600 kilometers are not only challenging the drivers and co-drivers but also the vintage and classic cars, built between 1927 and 1957 so it won’t surprise anybody that some of them broke down and had to retire.
There was a second place for the Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 Gran Sport (1933), see first video below, driven by Mark Gessler and his co-driver Giordano Mozzi, ending only 576 penalty points after the winning 1927 Bugatti T40 from equipe Tonconogy/Berisso from Argentina. 576 penalty points seems to be an awful lot, but the last equipe on the list had a gap of 87,417 points…
Photos and videos start spreading all over the internet now. Here’s a selection of some fine videos.
