Count Giannino Marzotto and Nearco Crosaro spur their Ferrari 340MM on ahead of Fangio’s Alfa Romeo 6C3000CM during the 1953 Mille Miglia…

The Italian duo won the race, held from 25-26 April by nearly 12 minutes over Fangio’s car navigated by Giulio Sala and Felice Bonetto/U Peruzzi Lancia D20.

The new Alfa’s, powered by a 3 litre DOHC 6 cylinder engine led 4/5ths of the race but Marzotto’s victory was emphatic, he broke  the average speed record set in 1938, leaving it at 142kmh.
