Join us for Mille Miglia in Tuscany in May 2018

Published 2018-01-06 by Administrator

As you already know, Mille Miglia is, without a shred of doubt, the most prestigious car rally in the world. It takes place every year, in May, in Italy. The first rally was held in 1927 as an alternative to Formula one, and attracts about five million(!) spectators each year.

The rally always starts and ends in Brescia in the north of Italy. It then goes south to Rome and back to Brescia. The route is different every year. It is held on normal roads and the distance is always 1000 miles. Hence the name Mille Miglia (thousand miles).

Join us for Mille Miglia in Tuscany 17-19 May

As in 2017, we are joining Mille Miglia with a Gran Turismo group. Not for the entire rally of 1600 km, but for the very best roads: the stages that go through Tuscany, Liguria and Emilia-Romagna on the 18th of May.

Now, here comes the best part: We have been able to source 21 super cars for this event for you. Ferraris, Lamborghinis, one Porsche, one Audi, two Morgans (ok, not super cars, but still cool) and one big black completely bad-ass Bentley convertible. (You can find all details about the cars below).

This means that you don’t need to bring your own car to Italy for this weekend. You can fly in to Tuscany, use one of our super cars, and enjoy Mille Miglia like a rock star.

Our most amazing and brilliant Mille Miglia plan

The event starts and ends in Tuscany, in the city of Pontedera which is close to Pisa. There is a big airport in Pisa. Arrival is on the 17th of May, a Thursday, where you check-in to the event and get your car. The same evening we have a drivers briefing and dinner in the famous restaurant “Divina Comedia di Gusto”.

The day after, on Friday the 18th of May, the real fun begins. We start in the morning and drive to Lucca, where we have lunch in a restaurant on the Mille Miglia route. After the passage of the first Ferrari group, it is our time to join the rally. We follow the route and drive to Sarzana and then Passo della Cisa.

Expect tens of thousands of spectators and hundreds of the most exotic cars in the world - both classic and modern - joining the rally. The roads are closed by the police, with cheering crowds demanding higher speeds and more “dynamic" driving. An unbelievable story to tell your friends back home.

The driving ends with a glass of prosecco in the city square of Parma. Later, we drive back to Pontedera, but now using the A15 and then A12 autostrada. Back in Pontedera we have aperitivo at 19 in the hotel, and then dinner at 20. You will be quite tired after a long day on the road with us and your supercar after this day.
