Congratulations from all of us at CCHMSC. They are home in Brescia. Both D Types, C Types and the XK's make it to the finish. As Ben Cussons in his C Type reported "Nothing beats a tunnel and a Jaguar engine on full chat! Glorious!" I guess they are all exhausted but ready to have a refreshing beer after that mamoth journey. The Mille Miglia 2015

Jaguar Heritage teams delighted to have arrived back at Brescia

Martin and Boorman D Type heads over finish ramp

Jodie Kidd hooray with David Gandy on arrival in XK120 back at Brescia

Beers in Brescia for Elliot Gleave, David Gandy and Jodie Kidd. 1000 miles well done.

The final leg from Parma to Brescia, with a visit to the F1 race track at Monza, just north of Milan. About 290Km today, 175 miles, with a hero's welcome for all the finishers I guess. Nice sunny start for the teams as they wake up in Parma.

Elliot Gleave and father Michael do some bonding as they press the loud pedal on the Monza banking in XK140

Saturday 16 May
Third and possibly the longest stage today. 15 hours drive from Rome to Parma, via Siena and Pisa.  Some 620km,  nearly 380 miles. I bet that was hard going in a D Type, especially when they start to climb into the northern hills.

Beecham / Callum and Martin / Boorman arrive in  Parma

Do James Martin and Charley Boorman look happy to have reached Parma or what !

Both D Types make it to Parma

Second stage of the event from Rimini on the east coast to Rome, around 400km (250 miles). A long drive today.

Good to see they have trip meters fitted this time

Charley Boorman and James Martin got to Ascoli Piceno early. 220k in and  well on the way to Rome

Charley Boorman has got the hang of the road book. We taught him well on the Mini Miglia in Scotland

Ian Callum and Clive Beecham in Ecurie Ecosse D Type arrive in Sangallia. Only 300Km to go to reach Rome.

Here are a few  of the twitter pics from the crews.

Not all Jaguar's on the event

Download the Entry List to see where they all were scheduled to start, now out of date.

We followed their progress as they headed out on the open road. It was good luck to all the Jaguar crews.  Hope they remembered what we taught them only 2 weeks ago in Scotland.
