2018 Mille Miglia – Final Standings Of North American Entries

The 2018 Mille Miglia has come to an end.  It is a very prestigious and challenging car rally covering a little more than 1000 miles in 4 days.  Some say that it is the most beautiful car rally in the world.  That claim is difficult to challenge.

The teams that finished at the top of the score sheet are highly skilled at these types of events.  Their minuscule timing errors are very impressive.  The winning team was Juan Tonconogy and Barbara Ruffini from Argentina in their 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C.

It is no surprise to me that an Argentina-based team won the Mille Miglia.  Practice is important and there is an event in Argentina, the 1000 Millas, which is very much based on the Mille Miglia and thus great practice for Argentine competitors for the Mille Miglia.

The Wine At The Mille Miglia Finish Line Looks Good

I have been following the North American teams that competed at the 2018 Mille Miglia.  The top finishing America was Shawn Till, who was navigating in a 1929 Chrysler 75 driven by Oriol Vilanova of Spain.  They finished in 31st position overall.  The top all-American team was Gessler/Gessler in a 1927 Bugatti Type 40 who finished 47th Overall.

The following table lists the North American teams that finished in the top half of the 450 car field.
