Final Results From The 2015 1000 Millas Sport Rally

The 1000 Millas Sport Rally is over for another year.  It appears to have been another success.  This rally continues to grow in stature and has helped to develop some top Argentine rally teams who can challenge for top positions and win the prestigious Mille Miglia in Italy.

While similar to the Mile Miglia in distance and scoring, it differs in one major way as the teams return to the same hotel every evening rather than staying in a different hotel each night as in the case of the Mille Miglia.  The base hotel for the rally is in Llao llao, Argentina.

On this third day of the rally, the teams traveled south to Lago Epuyen area, then turned around and returned to Llao Llao.  This third day was noticeably shorter than the first two days with a length of 360 kilometres.  The Day 3 route is shown below.

The final results were quite close – one of the closest finishes in the rally’s history.  The overall winners were the team of Claudio Scalise/Daniel Claramunt in their 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS who finished only about 9/100 of a second better than Daniel Erejomovich/Gustavo Llamos in their 1938 AC 16/80 Competition Sport!  Nine hundreds of a second – that’s likely faster than the blink of an eye.
