Cento Miglia III Charity Event.
The Mille Miglia III (Italian for Thousand Miles) was an open-road endurance race which took place in Italy 24 times from 1927 to 1957. It was generally run round-trip from Brescia to Rome over public roads with general traffic at high speeds. It was very dangerous which ultimately caused it to be discontinued. The race was immensely popular and over the years it brought out an estimated 5 million spectators.
The Mille was a showcase for European GT sports cars like Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes Benz and Porsche. Many Healey cars participated throughout the years including the Healey Elliott, Westland, and Silverstone, several Nash Healeys, and Austin Healey 100, 100M, 100S, and 100-6 models.
In the spirit of the Mille Miglia, we are hosting a 100 mile rally and scavenger hunt that we’re calling the Cento Miglia. Participants will be given instructions describing the route and a list of items and photographs to gather along the way. This is a competition but it is not a race. Each team can drive at their own pace through scenic North Georgia.
There will be a $20 entry fee and all net proceeds will be donated to the
American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.
There will be a 35 car limit with the following priorities:
1. Must register by April 13th.
2. Each vehicle can have as many passengers as they like (or fit!). A navigator is not required but is highly recommended as you will need to follow directions, figure out clues, and spot landmarks.
3. Bring some cash as you will need to buy something along the drive.
If you would like to attend but do not have a navigator, we will try to match you up. You might just make a new friend!
