Michela Cerruti, General Manager Romeo Ferraris
"In the wake of last year's victory, we decided to return to the Coppa Milano-Sanremo with as many as four cars, showcasing the best of the Morgan and Caterham range. For Morgan, it was the first participation in this event with three models , thanks also to our support, while for Caterham it was the debut of the 485 CSR in a regularity race with such great value. An appointment of this kind maintains the spirit of competition, but it is also a fashion show, a journey, and for this reason it fits perfectly with the spirit of our models, in which the car is lived as a 360-degree experience. We are happy to have given our contribution to the success of the event, which is registering a growth in interest and attendance" .
