California Mille History

Mille Philosophy

2018 marks the 28th Anniversary of the California Mille. Over the past few years we have had a record number of entrants, and it is encouraging to see many first-time participants joining the Mille family. And quite a family it has become – one that celebrates and rejoices in the California Mille’s three most important aspects:
 “important cars, little roads, and wonderful friends”.

Martin Swig
Instigator of the California Mille

Martin sadly passed away in 2012.
His sons, David and Howard, proudly carry on the tradition of the California Mille.
