For 30 years, The Mille Miglia has been bringing together exceptional personalities to the world of sport. Today, the re-enactment of the Millie Miglia is an event in a class of its own.
Driving Jaguar forward was an easy “race" for duo Jodie Kidd and David Blakeley. The British TV Presenter and hero-turned author David Blakeley produced a memorable driving performance in their Mille Miglia, earning the highest final placing of any Jaguar Heritage racing.
In a field of 450 of the world's coveted classic sports and luxury cars from marques including Bugatti, Ferrari and Porsche, Jodie and David drove their stunning Jaguar XK 120- nicknamed 'Betsey' to a credible 130 th place in the final standings.
Jodie Kidd said, “David and I are absolutely exhausted but are taking away the most incredible memories from this special event. 'Betsey' was a joy to drive. She was fast, smooth and a brilliant way to experience the glorious Italian countryside. David and I feel privileged to have been at the wheel of one of the most beautiful cars in the entire event. We will be back next year!"
British musician and singer Elliot Gleave, known more famously as 'example', was left glowing by the Mille Miglia experience. Elliot said, “I am absolutely buzzing after the best four days of driving I have ever known. The response to live updates from Italy from followers on my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook profiles was overwhelming. My wife Erin and I are thankful to the Jaguar team for this opportunity, which is one we'll never forget."
