Mille Miglia, one of the most famous historic car races in the world, took place on May 15th with departure from Brescia. 430 cars of extraordinary historical, technical and sporting value from all over the world passed through Desenzano and Sirmione, suggestive destinations of Lake Garda in Brescia; part of the transition took place in Via Brescia where Cofim has the office. Pause for the fourth consecutive year in the fascinating Sigurtà Garden Park. The race will continue to Rome passing through the most evocative places in Italy, returning after a journey of about 1700 km to Brescia, on May 18th.
In the history there have been two Mille Miglias: the original one, the famous long distance race on normal road, 24 times between 1927 and 1957 - interrupted during the war - and the current one that takes place every year towards the end of May; it is no longer a race of speed, but of regularity on the road, where precision is the most important thing, because you must complete the course in a predetermined time. The most precise participant wins and as a prize he obtains the prestigious cup of the most beautiful race in the world which is the faithful reproduction in solid silver of the original cup.
