On May 16, the 36th edition of the re-enactment of the Mille Miglia kicks off, the classic route to Rome and return with departure and arrival in Brescia will also stop in Emilia-Romagna in the towns of Cervia-Milano Marittima and Parma.
The date of the event - as per usual, one week ahead of the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix - this year will begin on Wedneaday instead of Thursday, taking off and ending in Brescia, crossing half of Italy, with a turning point in Rome. Every year, the route changes, to provide new scenery for the race.
As in 2016, the Mille Miglia will be held in four stages over four days and will pass through some of the most beautiful and evocative roads in Italy. The first stage, starting in the early afternoon of Wednesday, May 16, will end in Cervia-Milano Marittima, while the third stage on Friday 18 will be concluded again in Parma, which in recent years has always reserved a fantastic welcome to Freccia Rossa. From here, on Saturday morning, the cars will return to Brescia.
There is no change in terms of race regulations, which remain unchanged in the sport section with 440 cars admitted to the race, selected by a special commission.
