2013 Mille Miglia (Day 2)

The second day of Mile Miglia started at 7:45am when the cars left Ferrara to the Mighty Apennines reaching the Republic of San Marino around 11:45am. Between control points, David Gandy and Yasmin Le Bon, at the wheel of a Jaguar XK120 suffered a mild accident on the road between Ravenna and Gambettola. We are very glad that neither one were hurt. 

We are reminded again that the Mille Miglia, one of the most legendary races in automotive history, holds an adventure in every turn, straight away, moment or unforeseen event. All together it is part of a single goal: to complete the 1000 miles.

Fortunately they were able to hit the road again towards the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome. The arrival is just taking place live as we write (22h00 Italy local time). Now, we look forward to tomorrow, when they will cross the finish line.
