The Mille Miglia was one of the most important road races in the world and a national institution in Italy until it was stopped after the 1957 event. Dr. Simeone looked at four cars that ran in the Mille Miglia race and why they were successful. The four cars that were demonstrated were the following – Alfa Romeo Monza 8C 2300, Alfa Romeo 8C 2900A, Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B, Maserati 300S.
