Event title :Mille Miglia Brescia-Rome-Brescia, Italy
list date :12/31/1969
expiry date :12/31/1969
If you haven’t experienced it, you may wonder if the Mille Miglia is as mad as you’ve heard. It is. The Italians go wild for it, just as they did in its heyday between 1927 and 1957 – though back then the competitors raced the full 1000 miles non-stop. Nowadays it’s open to cars of a type that competed in the original, and it takes places over three days, but it’s still a challenge. Most of all, you won’t forget the experience of policemen waving you through red lights, police motorcycle riders urging you to go faster, and crowds cheering your way through every village, town and city. If you can’t take part, just book yourself into one of those locations and watch the historic automotive circus come to town.
