“The World’s Most Beautiful Race,” and just try…
…finding fault with that statement.
That the Mille Miglia is called the World’s most beautiful race is something of an understatement. Any time you throw together beautiful people, museum-piece cars, and speed, it’s a show. Add a ton of histrionics and gorgeous Italian countryside and it’s, well, beautiful, as you can see in the clip below.
Millie Miglia (3:01)
After a very successful, albeit wet, introduction last year, the 2019 Millie Miglia Warm-Up USA is taking applications again.
The second year now, the new “Warm Up” project is aimed at all the enthusiasts and fans of that most beautiful race, and just after last year’s event, organizers were determined to continue this first formal competition race outside of Italy.
The event features one day of training, followed by three days of competitive racing Miglia style, and is a tune-up for piloti and vehicle, meant to prepare both for the real deal. Here one can learn or study how to participate in the Freccia Rossa race.
Entries are now being accepted for the 1000 Miglia warm up, being held from Wednesday October 23rd to Saturday October 26th, 2019.
A maximum of 40 cars, divided between pre and post Miglia era, further divided between novice and experienced drivers.
Pouring rain at last year’s MM Warm-up, but the event photos convey nothing but fun.
