Watch Chris Harris pilot a vintage Jaguar C-Type at the Mille Miglia
While Harris takes us on a tour of the route, he takes us on an even better tour of what the Mille Miglia is and what it takes to run it. It's a mess of memories, minutes, mementos and sleepless nights. The C-Type was first owned by Juan Manuel Fangio. Stages are timed and require one to drive at a set speed - once, when Buncombe and Harris arrive 90 minutes early they're forced to sit in the car for an hour. Then they sleep for four hours before getting back into a C-Type with an unsilenced exhaust. "There's no better way to get tinnitus."
You can watch the highlights of Harris' run from Brescia to Rome and back in the video below.
