Special Motorsports Event - Announcement For 2012 Mille Miglia Race Date


Rome, July 13, 2011: The ‘Most Beautiful Road Race in the World’ as Enzo Ferrari called it will take the Italian roads once again along the historic route from Brescia to Rome and back next 17 - 20 May 2012.

“We have an ambitious goal - said Alessandro Casali, President of the Mille Miglia Organising Committee – and that is to beat the record success of the 2011 edition. The organising machinery is already working to arrange every single detail, to look into any further improvement, and to provide the ideal setting for a memorable event. We wish to share with everyone the passion and thrill of this extraordinary Brescia show that belongs to all of us and that represents Italy to the world”.

These words are translated into figures that are true proof of the success of the 2011 Mille Miglia:

7 million spectators along the road
1,690 journalists registered with the Organisers from over 35 countries
22 foreign TV stations
1,200 printed media articles released in just 5 days
165 minutes of broadcast in news reports and prime viewing time

“It is a pleasure to announce the dates of the 2012 edition of the Mille Miglia – explained Sandro Binelli, Secretary General of the Mille Miglia Organising Committee – which as it is a tradition, will be held before the Grand Prix de Monaco according to the Formula 1 international calendar. To organise the event on the third week in May will mean better weather conditions- a key factor in view of the huge success of the last edition. As drivers explained, the 2011 edition of the Mille Miglia was particularly attractive as good weather encouraged enthusiasts as well as general public to follow the race along the whole route”.

So save the date- 17th May in Brescia- for a new thrilling adventure following the red arrow road signs, the 'Freccia Rossa'.
