24th Annual California Mille Celebrates 24 Years of Legendary Mille Miglia Race
The 24th running of the California Mille, a motoring tribute to Italy’s most-famousopen road race,
the Mille Miglia (thousand mile), will begin with a free car show atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill
on April 27 followed by a four-day, thousand-mile back roads adventure.
Some 77 entrants from four foreign countries and 14 U.S. states will assemble on Mason Street
in front of the Fairmont Hotel where Italian Consul General Mauro Battocchi will arrive
in a vintage Italian car, greet the crowd and invite any or all to join him in singing
“Ill Canto degli Italiani”, the Italian National Anthem.
“This year’s Mille may be the most signiﬁcant compendium of classic cars we’ve ever had,”
revealed co-director David Swig. “Along with some 13 Alfa Romeos, 11 Porsches,
6 Jaguars and half a dozen Ferraris -- largely vintage ‘50s and ‘60s --
we have a ’52 Tojeiro Roadster, a ’28 Bentley, ’57 Kurtis Kraft 500KK, and a ’38 Lancia Aprilia.”
