Make a dream come true - join the Red Arrow on Italy’s roads this May for the 33rd re-enactment of the legendary Mille Miglia! Lead the way and enjoy more than 1.600 km on the same route as the Mille Miglia, preceding the contenders as a tribute to the historic ties between the “most beautiful road race in the world” (to quote Enzo Ferrari) and Mercedes-Benz, whose founders invented the automobile in 1886.
Sixty-nine years later, Stirling Moss raced from Brescia to Rome and back again in an incredible 10:07:48 hours – averaging 157.65 km/h and establishing the all-time record. A glorious cornerstone of Mercedes-Benz’s unparalleled 120 year-long racing history.
This year, Mercedes-Benz - Automotive Presenting Sponsor of the Mille Miglia - is proud to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of this magnificent feat. Sir Stirling Moss will once again steer his Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR (W 196 S) with the legendary starting-number 722 to the delight of countless spectators, accompanied by two more famous Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR as well as many other jewels from the Mercedes-Benz Classic and a throng of privately-owned beauties rarely seen on the road.
As a tribute to this historic achievement, sixty Mercedes-Benz cars may act as guard of honour for the Mille Miglia and take part in an exclusive regularity race event which will largely share the logistical and organizational arrangements put in place for the Mille Miglia classic rally. The event rules comply with the International Sporting Code for Regularity Events, meaning that the Mercedes-Benz Tribute features the same speed / time / distance trials as the main Mille Miglia event.
Eligible models are those built between 1958 and 1981 (as well as pre-1958 cars not eligible to participate in the Mille Miglia, e.g. the 300 SL Roadster) as well as post-1981 Mercedes-Benz SL, SLR, SLS and all AMG models.
The entry fee of € 7.000 excl. VAT / € 8.540 incl. VAT per team includes shared 4-star hotel accommodation and all meals for two persons (4 nights). Also included are a welcome pack, roadbook, numbered stickers, passes, secure overnight parking and traffic police escort. Applications may be submitted by May 8th on www.mercedesbenztribute.1000miglia.it.
