Next appointment tomorrow in Scarperia and San Piero (FI)

The first race day of the second edition of the Mugello Road Circuit closed a few hours ago. The competitors started at 9:00 a.m. from Piazzale Michelangelo, in Florence, and then made their way through the Chianti hills, heading to Piazza della Libertà in Arezzo and picking up altitude again towards the Consuma Pass, not before passing through the charming towns of Casentino, Poppi and Bibbiena. The day, minus a few rain showers, was marked by good weather and, above all, good cheer. Of the competitors, certainly, but even more so of the tourists who reached the natural overlook on Florence (Piazzale Michelangelo, precisely) and found themselves in front of the spectacle, visual and sound, of some of the most prestigious cars in the world. 

Among these, obligatory mention must be made of four Lancia Lambdas (1925, 1927, 1928 and 1929), a 1927 Bugatti 37A, a 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS, a 1930 FIAT 514 MM and no less than two Lancia Aurelia B20 GTs (1952 and 1953). Not forgetting nor underestimating more modern cars, GT road cars produced from 1991 onward, belonging to the Tribute category of the Mugello Road Circuit. These include Porsche 911 993 Turbo, Ferrari 458 Spider, Ferrari F12 and Ferrai 296 GTB. 

Last night, after scrutineering, the gala dinner was held in the splendid setting of the Stibbert Museum. Testifying to the importance of the event was the presence of ACI’s highest executives: Angelo Sticchi Damiani (President of ACI); Vincenzo Leanza (Head – Directorate for Road Education, Mobility and Tourism); Massimo Ruffilli (President of AC Florence); dtt.ssa Alessandra Rosa (Director of AC Florence) and Marco Rogano (General Manager of ACI Sport S.p.A.). 

Tomorrow’s program includes a 9:45 a.m. start from Piazza dei Vicari in Scarperia and San Piero (FI). The race route includes switchbacks on the Futa and Giogo Passes, and the event will end at the Mugello Circuit, where the awards ceremony will also take place.
