I have been following the ongoing results of the 1000 Millas Sport rally in Argentina. This is one of the top car rallies in the world. As I noted in a recent post, the rally is heavily modeled on the famous Mille Miglia rally.
The total aggregate results after Day 2 are shown in the attached file:
These results are very impressive when you consider that the scoring is based on 1 point for each 1/100 second of deviation from the perfect time.
The Argentinian IKA Torino Was Based On A Rambler American
I took a close look at the results after Day 1. These results are presented in a raw Excel data file below. The only thing that I did to this file was to highlight in yellow the results of the teams with American entrants.
On Day 1 there were a total of 29 controls that were timed to the 1/100 second. The Day 1 leading car had a total timing error of 0.94 seconds!!! Think about that! – a total of 0.94 seconds for 29 controls!! They had a perfect time to the 1/100 second at 4 controls and their worst timing error at a control was 13/100 seconds! If you want to do well in the 1000 Millas Sport, then the teams must bring their A-Game to the event. These top drivers certainly know how to control their cars.

As I noted previously, there are five cars with American competitors in them:
- Car 12: Patricio Waterhouse is the navigator in this 1927 Vauxhall
- Car 46: Milton Garcia is the navigator in a 1960 Maserati 3500GT
- Car 52: Tom Smith & Don Polak in a 1961 Volvo PV544
- Car 73: Sandra Kaski is the navigator in a 1967 Corvette
- Car 75: Keith Martin & Dean Koehler in a 1969 Jaguar E Type
The results for these teams at the 2014 Millas Sport rally after Day 2 are as follows:
