Mille Miglia 2018: North American Entries

The organizers of the 2018 Mille Miglia have published the list of accepted cars and crews for the 2018 running of this prestigious event.  There are 450 entries that have been accepted.  Of these 38 entries have at least one North American in the car.  It should be pointed out that getting accepted into the Mille Miglia is quite an achievement in itself.  This year 725 cars applied to enter the Mille Miglia, but only 450 were accepted.  Note that in recent years the organizers have increased the number of accepted entries.

The Famous Mille Miglia Arrow

The 2018 Mille Miglia car rally will take place from May 16 to May 19.  The Mille Miglia will begin and end in Brescia, Italy.  The 2018 route is shown below.


As I noted before, it is difficult to get accepted into this event.  Many of the applicants have very prestigious cars.  The number of applications for entry always far exceeds the number of available positions.  The number of applications for every year since 2013 is shown below.
