In the history of motorsports, there are very few races as historically fit-inducing as Italy's Mille Miglia. Blah, blah, blah, ack, ack, ack, ran from '27 to '57, minus the war years, spectators died, Stirling Moss drove that one Mercedes, it's a historic rally now etc. You know the drill. Regardless, it does not take away from the sheer stupendosity of the machinery that participates in today's event, nor does it dim the beauty of the Italian countryside one iota. Check out the flickr pool and spend a few minutes being astonished.
