Jeremy Irons will drive a Jaguar XK120 Coupe on the Mille Miglia this May. He will drive the ex-Jim Swift racing XK120 roadster, in the legendary Mille Miglia classic car endurance event, from 15-18 May with a line-up of top-name drivers, which will be traversed over 1,000 gruelling miles from Brescia-Rome-Brescia in ten of the most revered and sought-after historic Jaguar cars ever produced.
Only the cars selected from the models which took part in the original race can participate to Mille Miglia, with teams coming from all over the world. Thursday afternoon the cars leave Brescia, heart of the Mille Miglia, and arrive in Padova for the first overnight stay. The next morning they leave for Rome, passing San Marino and L’Aquila on the way. On Saturday they depart for Bologna, where they stay overnight before embarking on the last stretch to Brescia on Sunday morning, where they will be enthusiastically welcomed home for the prizegiving celebrations. The Mille Miglia will take place from 15th to 18th May 2014.
