All Tuscan stages of the 1000 Miglia on 16, 17 and 18 June 2021
This year the most beautiful race in the world pays homage to our region, crossing it in three days: from Versilia along the Tyrrhenian coast, but also Arezzo, the Chianti and the Mugello regions
The 'most beautiful race in the world' as Enzo Ferrari defined it, born as a real competition along the most beautiful Italian roads in 1927 with start and arrival in Brescia, this year will give Tuscany great, great emotions. From 16 to 19 June, these are the dates of the 39th edition.
THE DATES AND THE TUSCAN ROUTE
Wednesday 16 June Forte dei Marmi - Viareggio
For the first time in the history of the 1000 Miglia, the direction of travel of the race will be reversed: the 900 crews from Brescia will head towards the Tyrrhenian coast, tackling the Cisa Pass on the first day, passing through Forte dei Marmi and Versilia, concluding the first stage in the evening in Viareggio.
Thursday 17 June Pisa - Castiglione della Pescaia - Grosseto
The start of the second day of the race, on Thursday 18 June, will see the cars set off from Viareggio to continue towards Pisa as far as Castiglione della Pescaia and continue into the heart of the Maremma. Then from Grosseto the race will leave our region.
Friday 18 June Arezzo - Chianti - Prato - Barberino di Mugello
This day will see the cars heading up north: starting in Rome, after passing through Orvieto and Cortona, the cars will stop in Arezzo and transit through Chianti. After passing through Prato, the cars in the race will stop for the first time in Barberino di Mugello and then cross the Futa and Raticosa Passes to reach Bologna and conclude the third stage. The race will end on Saturday 19 June with the return to Brescia.
THE SUPERSTAR CARS
375 historic cars are admitted to the race, some of which have a truly glorious past, such as the three Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Zagato, identical to those that triumphed in 1929 with Giuseppe Campari and in 1930 with Tazio Nuvolari, the Ferrari 340 America Spider Vignale, which was driven at the 1952 1000 Miglia by Pietro Taruffi, and the 275/340 America Scaglietti.
THIS EDITION'S THEME
This year's edition is characterised by the theme "Crossing the Future", a real look at the future and sustainable mobility. The historic 1000 Miglia, which at the time was a showcase for the most technological and innovative cars, will be flanked by the electric cars of the 1000 Miglia Green, which will drive along the 1000 Miglia route in naturally electric mode. In fact, the challenge will be unique for the participants: to drive along the race route in an electric car, maintaining times consistent with the different power supply, respecting the scheduled time control points in order to finish the stage within the indicated time and enjoy the arrival catwalk and the stage of the 1000 Miglia.
