Close your eyes and imagine a red, sport car, running by the curves of a hill. It seems to be taken out of a futuristic painting: it is a convertible car with the driver behind the wheel wearing the typical pilot’s cap, a scarf around his neck and sunglasses to protect him from the wind. No odometer or digital tachometers, the dashboard is full of old clocks with needles! This is a race for vintage car lovers, certainly not for those who obtained a driver’s license to drive a car with automatic transmission.
The eighth edition of the Milan-Sanremo Cup will be held between March 12 and 14, 2010 and will count with the best vintage cars. The old glory marques like Ferrari, Alfa Romeo Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche and Fiat will show us what they can do! Only cars built before 1973 can participate in the competition and in each car there can only be two participants, the driver and the navigator. In the previous editions the viewers could enjoy models like the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GTC 1932 Cesare Sala or the Ferrari 166 Inter Coupé Touring.
The opening parade and presentation to the public will be held on Friday March 12, 2010 in Piazza Duomo in Milan. The output will be held the next day and cross the Pavese, the Lomellina city and then direct to Sanremo, where all the participants should arrive about ten o’clock at night.
Are you passionate about cars, but you are also concerned about the harm they may cause to the environment? You may change your mind: the Milan-Sanremo Cup organizers are also sensitive to this issue.
Last year they did the flyers with recycled paper and the same for this 2010 edition. They will also calculate the amount of CO2 they’ll emit into the atmosphere with the cars and then it will be compensated by a forestation project in an area whose wealth is at risk plant.
You have no excuses: go now to Milan and admire these past glories that still capture strong emotions. You can also take advantage of its vast cultural and gastronomic offer. Rent the best Apartments in Milan and have a nice stay!
