1940 Mille Miglia event poster – 1st Grand Prix of Brescia.
The Mille Miglia was briefly stopped by Mussolini after an accident in 1938 killed a number of spectators. When it resumed in 1940, it was dubbed the Grand Prix of Brescia, and held on a 100 km (62 mi) short course in the plains of northern Italy that was lapped nine times. This race saw Fritz Huschke Von Hanstein and Walter Baumer take the overall win in the ‘Kamm’ Coupe based on BMW 328 touring s/n 85368. BMW had achieved the greatest result in its history – overall victory, team victory, and third, fifth and sixth place in the rankings. Second and fourth places went to Alfa 6C 2500 SS ‘s.
This large museum quality original poster is a fantastic piece of BMW & Mille Miglia history! It is in good condition, linen mounted and measures over 3 feet tall (27.5×39.5″)
