Car enthusiasts get ready! Some of the nation’s most historic and unique automobiles will be at The Club at Creighton Farms (22050 Creighton Farms Dr., Aldie, Va. 20105) on Saturday, October 22 as part of Cars and Cappuccino, also the Official Time Trials of the 1000 Miglia Warm Up USA.
In the spirit of the 1000 Miglia, held each year in Italy—a dream event for millions of automotive enthusiasts around the world, the 1000 Miglia Warm Up USA is much more intimate, allowing for enthusiasts to interact with 1000 Miglia management and staff.
Each spring in Italy, more than 700 cars line up for a 1,000-mile road race that has been called “the most beautiful race in the world,” and is a 90+ year-old tradition. Because it is so popular, it is difficult to participate in the 1000 Miglia in Italy, but the 1000 Miglia Warm Up USA provides entry space in the 1000 Miglia for the top performers.
The Virginia event also includes training days and 1000 Miglia-style tests during which potential entrants can learn or study how to participate in the 1000 Miglia race.
The 1000 Miglia Warm Up USA event is reserved for up to 30 cars in two classes: the 1000 Miglia Era Class and the Post-1000 Miglia Era Class. The first is open to 1000 Miglia-eligible cars, built between 1927 and 1957, as well as significant sports and ground touring cars built during the same period; the second is open to select sports, grand touring, and supercars built from 1958 to present.
Cars and Cappuccino, which will take place from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on October 22, 2022 and will include a “Then & Now” auto showcase featuring spectacular vehicles from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Bentley, and others, also includes a full breakfast buffet for spectators.
Entries for drivers wishing to participate in the event close on Sept. 9 at 5:59 p.m. EDT. For details, updates and entry information, go to www.1000miglia.it/
