The final stage of the Ferrari Tribute to Mille Miglia ended in Brescia yesterday. The Prancing Horse cars left Parma in the early morning and headed for Busseto, the birthplace of Giuseppe Verdi. They then drove on to Cortemaggiore, the home of the famous Trofeo Supercortemaggiore, in which Ferrari was one of the protagonists in the 1950s. However, the sporting high point of the entire Tribute came when the cars did a lap of the Autodromo di Monza, the long-time home of the Italian Grand Prix and one of the world’s greatest circuits along with Silverstone, Le Mans, Monaco, Indianapolis and Spa-Francorchamps. They also drove past the legendary Parabolica, the raised oval that played host to the Formula 1 grands prix until 1961. Having left the circuit nestling in its ancient park and woodland, the Ferraris then powered on to the gem-like city of Bergamo before driving to Chiari and, finally, the finish at Brescia.
