SALVINELLI AND CECCARDI WIN THE 2018 MILAN-SAN REMO CUP IN A 1939 LANCIA APRILIA
Salvinelli and Ceccardi have won the 10ª Tenth historical revival of the Milan-San Remo Cup with 314.14 penalty points, driving a First Series 1939 Lancia Aprilia. Although Italy’s oldest road competition had been off the road for seven years, it fielded 70 teams who registered to cover the distance from Milan to San Remo, despite the challenging weather, which included snow on the Faiallo Pass that obliged the organisers to cancel some of the trials prove scheduled for the second, decisive day that ended this evening with the award ceremony in San Remo. Coming in second place, with only 14.18 points of difference was the Salviato-Moglia duo in a 1971 Fiat 128 Rally 1300, while the third step on the podium went to Dell’Acqua and Vicari in a 1970 Fiat 850 Sport Coupé, who marked up 37.7 points behind the winners.
The winners of the reliability trials were Büchl and Büchl in a 1957 Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster, followed just three points behind by Zegna and Gatto in a Porsche 356 Speedster Carrera, and five points behind by Dell’Acqua and Vicari in the Fiat 850 Sport Coupé.
The outright winners Salvinelli and Ceccardi won two prestigious tabletop clocks offered by IWC, while many prizes were also offered by the sponsors: Ermenegildo Zegna conferred the “Elegance Award” on the Basilico-Cappella team in its 1951 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d’Este, Bosch presented the “Safe Car” Award for safe driving to the Sardi-Bambini team in its 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1300 Ti and Alcar presented the prize to the winners of the Reliability Trials, the Büchl-Büchl team in its 1957 Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster.
