Hmm I thought that would be easy with those numbers.

Here is the mille miglia 2019 lista partecipanti.

However not so quick: there are no racing numbers, just the names of the drivers.

Which is sufficient if you can read those at full size. Still weird: a list with no numbers. Maybe it's somewhere else.

The list does include the year of construction though, which is very thoughtful.

Thanks, I had tried that, obviously not hard enough. I can read most of the driver names and most of the cars I can identify.

Perhaps you get your number when you turn up.

Thanks all, I'll put up any more really hard ones.

This may be a long shot, but it's an Italian Red Cross van. Probably not a Fiat if that helps.

The ambulance is a 1957 Fiat 1100 according to a couple of microstock sites, which all have the same image of your vehicle.

Thanks all.

Wim, that's marvellous, you seem to be able to find anything, anywhere, but pix of every entrant is quite something. Now I can identify them I may put up some more.

Incidentally the Osca appears to be worth north of €1,000,000.

Aww. What a car! It's basically a Maserati by another name.

 

I was still looking for an official race numbers list. My guess is that you have to do it in Italian.

This one is by a Dutch photographer. His website says there will be Flickr albums, but they're not active yet.

Somehow I cannot get the page to be translated into English. Both Chrome and Google Translate.

Which is a shame, because the site is huge and a true treasure trove for classic car enthusiasts. They have a magazine in Dutch: AutoFocus. 😉

They really should do an English version. Or at least put it together in a way that Google Translate can access the content.
