1000 Miles from Brescia to Rome and Back
The historic race, Mille Miglia was born in 1927 as a brainchild of two young counts, Aymo Maggi and Franco Mazzotti, along with their sports manager Renzo Castagneto and Giovanni Canestrini a motoring journalist. Together with a group of friends, they decided on a race from Brescia to Rome and back that resembled the figure eight, covering roughly 1500 km — or
a thousand Roman miles, hence the name Mille Miglia (1000 Miles).
Until 1957, the race was an open road endurance test; then it was reborn in 1977 as a classic and vintage car race. The route stays true to the original path, but there are strict rules and regulations for today’s Mille Miglia. To be eligible for the competitive 450 or so slots, the car needs to be born before 1957 and be an automobile attended, or registered, to the original race.
