Description The Mille Miglia (Thousand Miles) road race took place in Italy from 1927 to 1957. In the Mille Miglia the smaller, slower displacement cars started first. From 1949, cars were assigned numbers according to their start time. For example, the 1955 Moss/Jenkinson car, #722, left Brescia at 07:22. In August 1953, Italian racing legend Tazio Nuvolari died. As a mark of respect, the 1954 route of this race, near it finish would pass through Mantova (Mantua), where he was a resident.The 24th race was held in 1957 and would become the last.
