BMW Italy in the Mille Miglia 2016 – Day 1 Brescia Rimini

The BMW Group takes six of the legendary roadsters to the starting line in the competition for historic automobiles driving through the North of Italy. The Mille Miglia was the toughest endurance race in the world for three decades. Since 1988, it has been held as a reliability and regularity race for historic automobiles. It is a veritable feast for classic fans who line the 1000 mile route through Northern Italy in large numbers. Around 450 historic sports cars will take part in this year’s event, driving from Brescia to Rome and back from 19 to 22 May 2016. The regulations state that only vehicles of the type that were registered at least once for the Mille Miglia between 1927 and 1957 are permitted to take part. They include the BMW 328. This year, BMW Group Classic is sending six automobiles from its collection to line up at the start to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the legendary roadster.
