|Our 1951 Ermini. More info on Ermini here.|
This car took part in the original Speed version of MM, in 1952 and 1953
and so has automatic entry to today's time trial version of the MM
Ok, so here we are. I can't find anywhere else to put photos and posts about our first outing at the Mille Miglia, to start next week in Brescia (16-19 May), so I'm going to put it here, as at the least this is a blog about a car trip.
And how about that? It's seven years, no less, since we did our cross Africa trip.
As Groucho said:
Time flies like an arrow
Fruit flies like a banana
[PS: this is a "pinned post" meaning it will always be on top; until June 4]
LATER (22 May): Quick description of the Mille Miglia, below the fold. (more on the MM website here).
LATERER (28 May): Well it seems that I've allowed this to morph into an Italian Road trip. Oh well, so be it... As the Italians would say perche non?
EVEN LATERER STILL (6 June): Back in Hong Kong and jet-lagged. Explanation to why this is called "Cape to Cairo" is that I've just piggy-backed on this earlier blog I did in 2011 for our road trip across Africa. And great trip that was too! So, this time it's May/June 2018 starting with Gordie and my go at the Mille Miglia, which took place 16-19 May. The first posts are 12 May 2018.
You can either click on the Label "Mille Miglia 2018" on the above right, which will filter all the MM posts, or just start at 12 May, which you can get to via the "Blog Archive". Basically, it's all the posts in 2018.
Then I ended up adding photos of the road trip we did from Brescia/Milan down to Sicily and back to Milan, with John and Jing joining in that.
And, reminder, below the fold is a quick description of the Mille Miglia, and how it works.
