What a fantastic event this was! In some respects there are many similarities to the 1000 Miglia in terms of beautiful Italian scenery; charming villages; driving tests and checkpoints, but the atmosphere is much more relaxed, with only around 300 historic vehicles competing. The route started and finished in Mantova and took in night stops in Bologna and Rimini. The roads were delightful to travel on and there was good organisation underpinning the event.
Representing Aston Martin were three pre-war Aston Martins; two Le Mans and a Speed Model. One of the Le Mans, driven by a Russian team, finished very well indeed with 25th position overall. The other two Astons finished mid-field and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. About 15% of the entrants did not finish, and we're proud to say that not only did all pre-war Astons finish, but our support team had almost nothing to do except keep up! This is a great testament to the good preparation work carried out on the vehicles before they left the UK.
This event is highly recommended. Our support team is available next year to look after you if you wish to enter.
