Alfa Romeo will be Automotive Sponsor of the 2020 “1000 Miglia”

The 38th re-evocation of what Enzo Ferrari liked to call the “most beautiful race in the world” will be held from 13 to 16 May 2020 on the traditional Brescia-Rome-Brescia course.

An unmissable event, which will once again enjoy the partaking and support of Alfa Romeo as Automotive Sponsor. Renewed in 2019 to run until 2021, the three-year sponsorship contract sets the seal on the deep bond that has united the “Freccia Rossa” and the Italian brand ever since 1928.

As always, numerous fine Alfa Romeo models from the collection of FCA Heritage, the Group’s department dedicated to protecting and promoting the historic heritage of the Italian FCA brands, will be present at the 2020 edition of the Brescia event.

And these heritage gems will be joined in the parade by a fleet of thirty current vehicles; Stelvio and Giulia models that embody the new Alfa Romeo paradigm. In their role as official cars of the 2020 “1000 Miglia”, Giulia and Stelvio are sure to delight the many enthusiasts who watch them travelling the legendary course: there could be no better introduction to the Alfa Romeo values, steeped in history and competition.

One of the most famous events in Alfa Romeo’s racing history took place in 1928, during the second edition of the “1000 Miglia”, when the constructor won both the individual and the team titles, with all eight of its cars successfully finishing the course.

In the years between then and 1957, Alfa Romeo triumph the event an amazing eleven times, a record which will now never be beaten, and which confirms the unbreakable bond between two brands which shine with a special glory on the world motoring scene.

And it was with the same, undimmed passion as in the past that on 18 May last year enthusiasts welcomed the arrival in Brescia of Giovanni Moceri and Daniele Bonetti, winners of the 2019 “1000 Miglia” in the 1928 6C 1500 SS from the FCA Heritage collection, normally on show in the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo at Arese.

Second place went to the 1929 6C 1750 SS Zagato of Vesco-Guerini, while the other Alfa Romeo cars entered by FCA Heritage all completed the race with very respectable placings. What’s more, Alfa Romeo also received the Sponsor Team Trophy, thanks to Moceri’s victory and the fifth-place finish of the 1929 6C 1750 SS Young driven by Cavalli-Gamberini.
