Bug’s mega Mille Miglia

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The Bri­tish-pre­pared Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle en­tered into this year’s Mille Miglia com­pleted the Ital­ian 1000-mile race with­out fault, com­ing in at a re­spectable 223rd out of 460 en­trants. The 1956 oval win­dow Bee­tle was driven from Bres­cia to Rome and back over four days, 18-21 May, by fa­ther and son team Mark and Josh Reynolds of Hamp­shire-based VW spe­cial­ists Just Kam­pers. ’When we first en­tered the Mille Miglia we were aim­ing just to fin­ish the rally in one piece,’ says Josh. ‘ Then we wanted to climb ten places, then 50, but we never ex­pected to fin­ish in the top 50 per cent!’


UK Bee­tle at­tracted a lot of at­ten­tion.
