Referred to by Enzo Ferrari as the "the most beautiful race in the world", the 2024 edition of the 1000 Miglia is under way. The event features historic cars produced between 1927 and 1957, when the 1000 Miglia was not a regular race but a speed race, with a route between Brescia and Rome.

The route, which has never changed over the years, will see more than 300 teams competing in 2024, ready to cross some of Italy's most beautiful regions.
