Hoping to drive the 2017 Mille Miglia

We all have bucket list items that we tick off as life goes on. If we're lucky we get to do some, most or, if we're really lucky, all of them. Then there are those fantasy dreams that we fantasize we will do some day but are really so extravagantly beyond the realistic that we understand they are just that, fantasies. I hope I'm on the road to doing one of the fantasies. I've been a car nut since age ten, read all the early car magazines car and still have an original copy of the magazine in which appeared Denis Jenkinson's report of his drive as navigator with Stirling Moss in their Mercedes-Benz 300SLR win of the 1955 Mille Miglia.

So driving in today's Mille Miglia has been my car fantasy, a wild dream never to be done. Except that two weeks ago a friend and I bought an eligible Triumph TR2, the Standard Motor Car Company's 1954 press car that has been completely restored and fitted out for serious rallying. And filed our application to run it in the Mille Miglia this May. We've arranged with the English Company that restored the car to provide rally support. Some nights I can't sleep, thinking about driving the TR2 down the ramp in Brescia and doing the same thousand mile course that Stirling ran.

If I've managed it properly, here's a link to my TR2:
