North American Entries In The 2015 Mille Miglia

The organizers of the 2015 Mille Miglia have announced the provisional starting list for this wonderful car rally.  There are still a large number of blank spaces in the provisional starting list so I expect that additional names will be revealed at a later date.  Many North Americans were fortunate enough to have been selected from the hundreds of entries to take part in this prestigious event.  This is quite an honor.

The following is an initial listing of the 2015 American and Canadian entrants, based on the provisional starting list.

If any of the North American entrants want to ensure that their car gets pictured along the route and that they can track down a photographer, then let me know and I can put you in touch with an Italian photographer.
