Bug’s mega Mille Miglia
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!’
