The Milan-San Remo Cup revs up its engines with a host of new features on the starting line at the XI Historical Revival
There are now just under three months to go to the launch of the XI Historical Revival of the Milan-San Remo Cup, due to take place on 28, 29 and 30 March 2019. In addition to the news already announced about the route – above all the exceptional epilogue that will take all the team from San Remo to Monte Carlo to celebrate the historical twinning between the two symbolic auto racing venues, the Monza Race Track and the Principality of Monaco – one of the most exciting is bound to be the starting line itself, which revives the tradition from the fifties and sixties, as it is planned to be located in Via Marina, in front of the Milan Automobile Club. This return to our roots also pays a worthy tribute to the capital city of Lombardy, where Italy’s most venerable car race was born, while also bearing witness to the increasingly active role played by the Milan Automobile Club and its top management. Large numbers have already registered in recent months, in part because of the introduction of the new Tourist class that has the potential to expand the pool of possible users and also involve the many fans who want to try their hand over the 600 km of the race route, keeping one eye on the chronometer and the other on more calmly enjoying the splendid landscapes through which it is scheduled to pass, as always. Another new feature this year is the Tribute reserved for a maximum of 60 cars of historical interest that will go through their paces in an exclusive celebratory parade on the opening day at the Monza Race Track, just before the traditional parade in Milan’s Via Monte Napoleone that precedes the actual start on Friday 29 March from 9.00 a.m. onwards. Registrations are due to close on Friday 1 March at midnight.
