1000 Miglia 2020

Taking a different route each year in order to delight aficionados from around the world, the 1000 Miglia runs through more than 200 towns and villages in northern and central Italy. In keeping with a tradition established in 1927, the 2020 1000 Miglia itinerary featured a loop starting in the town of Brescia. The first stage departed on the afternoon of Thursday October 22nd and ended in Cervia - Milano Marittima.

The second took competitors to Rome where they enjoyed a chance to rediscover the city of seven hills at nightfall. On Saturday October 24th, it was off to the enchanting landscapes of Tuscany, en route to Parma in the Emilia-Romagna region. Finally, on Sunday morning, pilots began their return to Brescia, where an ever-enthusiastic public awaited them.

Vintage Vibe and contrasts

The Mille Miglia 2020 Race Edition revisited the full-black theme with a beadblasted, Diamond-like Carbon (DLC)-treated case, matt black varnished dial and contrasting 'vintage yellow' markings. An essential feature in the heat of the action, when driving requires full attention in case of bad weather or night-time arrivals.

A unique race for an exceptional year

Memorabilia

For the 32nd consecutive year, Chopard served as main partner and official timekeeper to the 2020 edition of the 1000 Miglia rally. Traditionally organised in May, the car race regarded as "the world’s most beautiful" was held from October 22nd to 25th, in compliance with the prevailing public health regulations. This calendar upheaval did not dampen the enthusiasm of the 354 crews who set out to conquer the 1,618 kilometres of the course – all under the protective, encouraging and watchful gaze of Friend of the Maison, Jacky Ickx, who presided over the festivities organised by Chopard.

The competition was won by the team composed of Roberto Vesco (already a winner in 1993) and his son Andrea Vesco (who finished third in the 2018 edition and second in 2019) at the wheel of a 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Zagato.

In addition, the Chopard Sponsor Team was proud to announce a great performance by of one of its own crews, led by Stefano Valente and Alberto Aliverti, who finished fifth, also aboard a 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato.  

Finally, more than 45 hours of driving through 245 Italian municipalities saw Silvia Marini and Francesca Ruggeri end by winning the "Coppa delle Dame", the first all-female crew to finish the 1000 Miglia with an excellent 24th place at the wheel of a 1929 Bugatti T40.
