With great champions and first-rate drivers who bring the most beautiful and rare cars back on track and who allow themselves without reserve and with smiling generosity to the admiration of the many fans present. And with a crowd of people coming from all over Europe, together with leading media of many nationalities.

The Zeromille organization, headed of course by the pair Piarulli-Valli, will still count on the patronage of the Secretary of State for Sport of the Republic of San Marino and the collaboration of FAMS Automobile Federation of San Marino and of CONS, the San Marino National Olympic Committee.
