Historic poker for the driver who, along with Fabio Salvinelli, triumphed ahead of Fontanella-Covelli and Belometti-Bergomi
BRESCIA, Italy, June 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The longest edition in the history of the 1000 Miglia has come to an end as the crews crossed Italy covering 2,200 kilometers during the five days of the race. Going from the insistent rain before the arrival in Rome to the scorching sun in Alessandria, the participants completed a tour de force that saw them stop at Cervia-Milano Marittima before the turn in the capital, to drive to Parma and finish in Milan, with a Passage Control in Piazza Duomo and arrival at City Life, for the last night of the race before the arrival in Brescia.
In the end, the defending champions succeeded: after overcoming some setbacks on the first afternoon of the race, from the start of the second stage they confirmed themselves as the crew to beat, leaving the fight for the second and third steps of the podium to their rivals. Andrea Vesco thus claimed his fourth consecutive title (out of a total of six), while Fabio Salvinelli matched Giuliano Canè with a three-win streak. "At first there were challenges," Vesco declared with the engines cut off. "Then we had a consistent performance with a low number of penalties. Only when I participated with dad I had achieved such a good result, I am very proud to have achieved this historic result."
Behind the winners' 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato, two Lancia Lambda Spider Type 221s are also on the podium: Gianmario Fontanella and Annamaria Covelli preceded Andrea Belometti and Gianluca Bergomi. The best women's crew was made up of Silvia Marini and Irene Dei Tos in a 1929 Bugatti T 40, who took the Women's Cup by finishing 27th overall.
The 1000 Miglia Verde was won by Paolo Piva and Matteo Ferraglio in Tesla Model Y ahead of Mirco Magni and Laura Confalonieri in Polestar 2 and Antonino Azzarello and Stefano Orlandini in Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Lastly, Andrea Milesi and Giordano Mozzi won the Ferrari Tribute 1000 Miglia with an F8 Spider, followed by Fabrizio Macario and Giovanna Di Costanzo with a 488 Pista 2019. Third was Celestino and Antonio Sangiovanni with a Ferrari Roma de 2021.
