197 MILLE MIGLIA PART II

A quarter of a century ago, The Castiron got the unique chance to participate in the Mille Miglia 1995 – as co-driver of a German aristocrat. The car originated from the late thirties – a collector’s piece belonging to a prestigious German vehicle manufacturer. 

Those days in Italy are simply indescribable. Anyway a few headings: support by the manufacturer, a good team spirit in general, especially between the aristocrat and The Castiron and many, many unforgettable impressions – men and machines, the route and the scenery, above all the enthusiastic crowd from the very young to the really old.

Just a few facts: though the two were novices in this multi-day regularity race, they achieved to win one stage, overall they finished into the first third of the classified cars. They brought the car back to Brescia as they received it a few days before – no accident, no damages, no technical defects, everything very well. For The Castiron, all this was a gift from the Lord the heavenly Father, too.

Less words, more pictures – please have a look at them. Again: a picture is worth a thousand words. Not even in thousands of words this adventure, this experience can be adequately described.

See you next Friday.   -   God bless you, all the best!   The Castiron
