Racing

On 10 August 1907 the crowd in Paris formed two lines to celebrate the triumph of the motor race from Peking. It was won by Prince Scipione Borghese, the great journalist Luigi Barzini of the “Corriere della Sera”, and the mechanic Ettore Guizzardi.

The winner was the Itala, and the tyres were Pirelli, which raced for about 17,000 kilometres in an adventure that was told in the pages of the book “Peking to Paris: A Journey Across Two Continents” in 1907 by the famous reporter.

The race was a victory for Pirelli and its products and brought it huge international acclaim. Pirelli never stopped after that, going on to win the 1925 Grand Prix World Championship at Monza with Brilli-Peri’s Alfa Romeo, racking up victories on two and four wheels, from the Giro d’Italia to the 6 Days of Sanremo. Then came the 1950s and a thousand miles from Brescia to Brescia, with the Mille Miglia, passing through Rome. This was Alberto Ascari’s moment: two Formula 1 World Championships with Pirelli and Ferrari. And Pirelli is still racing and winning today: in Formula 1 and rallying, Superbike, motocross and cycling. Always looking to the future.
