Having already covered hundreds of miles in their 1955 AC Aceca-Bristol, Clive and navigator Sarah Porter set out on Saturday to embark on the 4th and final stage of this year’s Mille Miglia.
The day began with a series of trials at the Varano de Melegari circuit, following which drivers continued on the race route through Stradella and Pavia, before arriving in Monza.
Here, at the fabled Monza Grand Prix Circuit, competitors celebrated the centenary of the Italian Grand Prix by putting their abilities to the test against the clock, and tackling aspects of this formidable track such as the Ascari Chicane, Parabolica and the Curva Grande. On departing Monza, one final stint saw the cars travel via Bergamo to the finish line in Brescia; marking an end to the challenging 1000 mile odyssey, and to 4 days of racing.
Congratulations to both Clive and Sarah on their successful completion of this historic yet demanding open-road endurance race.
