25 - 30 April 2009
THE CALIFORNIA MILLE - 19th California Mille
1000 miles throughout Northern California over 4 days, 26-30 April 2009.
For 19 years, the California Mille – under written and binding authorization from the previous Mille Miglia committee – has celebrated the best of Italian culture, history and motoring.
Preceding the Mille’s departure there will be a two-day festa Italiana in front of the Fairmont Hotel, with a Dolce Vita day of Italian food, wine and culture on Saturday afternoon and evening, 25 April, and our annual open display of California Mille cars and Palo Alto Concours classics on Sunday afternoon, 26 April.
The $5,800 entry fee includes all meals and lodging (double occupancy) for 26 - 30 April 2009 for both driver and co-driver.
2008 California Mille: Allowed Car Entires: When the first Mille Miglia revival was held in 1982, cars were only 25 years old. Now, they’re 51! So we’ve decided to allow a very few post ’57 cars each year, as long as they’re fundamentally the same design as a ‘57 or earlier predecessor. For example, this will make all 356’s and Alfa Guilia’s eligible for consideration. But it won’t help Jaguar XK-E’s – they’re so obviously a next-generation car. Last Night of the 2008 Mille: A surprise is in store on the last night of the 2008 Mille. On that day, May 1, 2008, a fine new lodge, in a spectacular location, is opening near Sausalito. It’s Cavallopoint – the Lodge at the Golden Gate.
