- The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team drivers later greeted the cars on arrival in Brescia

In second place, just eight penalty points behind the victor, the stunning 6C 1500 Super Sport dating from 1928 with coachwork by Stabilimenti Farina, an official car from the FCA Heritage collection, which is normally on display at the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo. The car carried the race number 30, also worn by its sister that won the first Alfa Romeo victory in the Mille Miglia with Giuseppe Campari and Giulio Ramponi in 1928. It was driven in the event by Giovanni Moceri, with navigator Daniele Bonetti. Giovanni Moceri is current holder of the Italian Grandi Eventi ACI Sport Champion title and already has victories in Italy's biggest historic regularity competitions to his name, from the Mille Miglia to the Targa Florio and the Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti.
In third place, the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato driven by Vesco-Guerini.
The Alfa Romeo cars entered by FCA Heritage finished in very creditable positions, and all concluded the 36th historic re-evocation of the Mille Miglia by completing the traditional Brescia-Rome-Brescia course.
So this 2018 edition has definitely earned a place in Alfa Romeo's history, and the “Alfa Romeo: the Mille Miglia in 90 places” project has just been launched to trace the most significant stages of the brand's history at the Mille Miglia.
