Mille Miglia 2014

Thursday, May 15, 2014 to Sunday, May 18, 2014

mm logoOnce again, one of the biggest events of the year from a Heritage perspective will be the Mille Miglia taking place from May 15-18.  This will once again see a large team entry from Jaguar Heritage Racing that will comprise eight cars, four of them from the Jaguar Heritage collection.  All of these are veterans from previous years and will include two XK120s, the famous 1952 ‘7 days and 7 nights’ coupé LWK707 and the 1953 open two seater OOF 748, C-type NDU 289 also from 1953 and finally the 1956 D-type 393RW.  This D-type, one of two owned by Jaguar Heritage, is the original car that came 6th in the 1956 Le Mans 24 hour race.  The driver line-up is still being finalised but will once again include a number of celebrities from the worlds of sport and film – watch out for updates in future newsletters.
