The Mille Miglia gets better and better every day—no matter if your car is broken and you're out of the race.

If you want to follow the Mille Miglia, there's no better place than from a vintage car. It's the perfect and, yes, challenging place for a journalist to be working on a 4 day coverage. I shouldn't complain for lack of inspiration to inspire my articles!

Most of the world’s more affluent nations have hosted epic road races, with often the most grueling contests formed in countries who housed pioneers of the auto industry. The Tour de France Automobile, first held in 1899, was reborn in 1992 as a long-distance classic car competition, similar to the Mille Miglia.
