I hope that these competitors do well in the 2016 Mille Miglia.  However, for some reason, the North American entrants generally don’t seem to do very well in this event.

It would be great to hear from any of these entrants to find out more about their story of preparing for and participating in the 2016 Mille Miglia.

    I see there are many co-driver positions to be announced. I’m available as a co-driver. I have absolutely no qualifications other than a burning desire to participate in the Mille Miglia and a passport. Also – I fit into the passenger seat perfectly and know my left from my right. Just wanted to put that out there.

    I see Wayne Carini’s name, so I guess we can expect to eventually see coverage on Chasing Classic Cars.

    • Hi Jay,
      I hope that Wayne includes coverage of the Mille Miglia on Chasing Classic Cars. The Mille Miglia is a great venue for a Chasing Classic Cars show. Wayne & Ralph have done other rallies together before – the London to Brighton run comes to mind.

    steve

    do you have any insight about how one goes about entering the mille miglia ?
    the actual logistics and cost involved, acceptable cars …etc

    • Hi Kevin,
      You can get a lot of that information from the Mille Miglia website. Generally speaking, it is not easy to get an entry accepted due to the number of entries that they get and the restrictions on the cars that they will accept. Send me a private email at the following address: shanna12 at comcast dot net and I will provide a more complete explanation. It is not an inexpensive event.
