Compared with the previous year most of the entrants resorted to smaller displacement engines for this years Mille Miglia. Maserati was there with four new 2-litre A6GCS sports cars for Ascari, Capelli, Tassara and Auriechio. Cistalia was there again with cars for Taruffi and Bonetto. Ferrari had cars for Biondetti, Cortese, Righetti and last minute addition Nuvolari.
The benefactor in all of this was Biondetti who held the lead for the rest of the race. A win, overlooked by the fans enraptured by the Flying Mantuan. Fiat had one of it’s most successful races scoring a second through fourth. At the awards dinner after the race Biondetti was the last to speak after having heard speaker after speaker extolling Nuvolari’s great performance. The old Tuscan began his speech, “Excuse me for having won”, and went on to explain how he had won his third Mille Miglia.
