Patterned after Italy’s famed Mille Miglia open-road endurance race, Central Pennsylvania's Mille for MS (October 19-20, 2012) revived the nostalgia and pageantry of the original event in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The fundraiser showcased more than 60 of the world’s finest classic and modern sports cars with a 100-mile tour through Central PA. The result? Nearly $25,000 was raised to help fight a disease that affects millions worldwide.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, including our title sponsors — Sun Motor Cars/Porsche North America — for helping to make the inaugural Mille for MS a success. For information about sponsorship opportunities or to participate in the 2013 Mille for MS, email Kelsy See at ksee@MilleforMS.com
After the Italian Grand Prix was moved from the Italian city of Brescia to a circuit in Monza in 1922, many of the people of Brescia were left feeling insulted. In 1927, as a response to their hometown’s loss, Aymo Maggi and Franco Mazzotti established what became known as the Mille Miglia. The race, which grew to be wildly popular, ran from Brescia to Rome and back – a course spanning 1600 km – and featured some of the most unique sports cars ever produced, including the BMW, Ferrari, and Porsche. The event took place 24 times until it was banned in 1957.
