Maranello, 2nd May 2013 – The Ferrari Tribute to Mille Miglia, a re-enactment for Prancing Horse owners of the world’s most famous endurance road race, gets underway once again this year on May 16th. Crews aboard post-1957 Ferraris will parade their cars down Brescia’s Viale Venezia to open the 2013 edition of the historic event. The competitors then continue along some of Italy’s most beautiful roads, following the traditional route to Rome and back, and cross the finish-line at Brescia on the night of Saturday, May 18th.
The Ferraris taking part come from more than 20 different nations worldwide and are divided into two separate categories: Classic for cars built between 1958 and 1984, and those built between 1984 and the present. The cars represent a marvellous compendium of Ferrari’s extraordinary production from every era and were selected by a special committee chaired by Ferrari’s Vice Chairman, Piero Ferrari.
The Ferrari Tribute to 1000 Miglia follows exactly the same 1500km route as the main race, starting from Brescia and with regularity trial stages in Desenzano del Garda, the Autodromo di Imola, Rome, Florence and the Fiorano Circuit before finishing back at Brescia once more.
The Ferrari Tribute to 1000 Miglia cars leave a few minutes ahead of their historic counterparts, providing the thousands of enthusiasts that throng the route, with an absolutely unmissable spectacle.
