To mark its centenary, Bentley entered two historic 1930 4½ Liter Blowers into the race, and I was privileged to serve as navigator for one of them.

The Mille Miglia covers over 1,000 miles of some of the most scenic countryside Italy has to offer.

Our car dwarfed some of the competitors roadsters out there, many of which spend the rest of the year locked up in museums.

But you needn't be in something incredibly exotic to compete. Many more attainable cars were right in the mix.
