Taruffi at Last
1957 Mille Miglia, July 19th: Piero Taruffi on his way to victory in the last Mille Miglia ever run. This was his 14th attempt! The race was banned after a fatal crash took the lives of driver Alfonso de Portago, his co-driver/navigator, and eleven spectators, at the village of Guidizzolo.

Taruffi was born in Rome, Italy on October 10th, 1906. Like many great drivers before him, Taruffi drove both cars and motorcycles and won his first race on two wheels in 1925, when he was 19 years old. In forty-one races he scored twenty-two wins, twenty of them outright. In addition to his racing activities he broke thirty-eight World Records including those of the Flying Kilometer at 274 Kph., the Standing Kilometer, The Standing Mile and the One Hour record. On four wheels his record is even more impressive and in 136 races he scored forty-four wins. In 1957 he set the seal upon his brilliant career by winning the final Mille Miglia.
