1000 Miglia: A Race with the most Incredible Cars of the Automotive History

In partnership with DriversHall

On May 15th, I had my first experience at the 1000 Miglia – and it was amazing! There were some of the most incredible cars of the automotive history on the road today and I think 1000 Miglia is an ode to the golden times of the automobile.

For this opportunity, I was invited by the team of DriversHall to take photos and join them for the Ferrari Tribute. DriversHall is a community of people who are connected by a passion for supercars, as well as an exclusive members club for car aficionados that own and know how to drive a supercar and want to connect and pursue their hobby with like-minded awesome people.

Starting on the streets of Desenzano the race took two days and featured an exquisite selection of some classic and contemporary Ferraris. The DriversHall team participated with a stunning red F40, and we were lucky to follow them until Milano Maritima capturing the race with the camera.

Following the strict standards of the 1000 Miglia, every car that is being part of it must have an impeccable provenance. You will get to see some of the finest, most exclusive and rare classic cars that exist.

On the second day of the race, I woke up very early at around 5 am to have the chance to see all the cars on the streets in front of the hotels just sitting there for your enjoyment. It also gave me the chance to see all the other cars that were part of the main 1000 Miglia race, besides the Ferrari Tribute.

It was an amazing sensation to be surrounded by all these beautiful masterpieces when the race took off – and to hear all the engines roaring is quite an unforgettable impression.

Here is my selection of photos that capture the magical moments of the race. Enjoy!

 

 

Thanks a lot to the DriversHall team!

In Berlin, it’s really rare to find many cool locations in one specific district. The government district is the big exception. I remember that I saw Nico one day at a red light in this district. Immediately I wrote to him to finally meet and do a shooting. When I saw the 1600-2 with all these buildings in the background I thought that it’s the perfect location. It really matches with the car!
