2003 Mille Miglia won by Argentine Bugatti T23

The winners of this year’s Mille Miglia come from Argentina, the Sieleki and Hervas pairing, second the previous year behind Cané and Galliani. The number 14, suitably a 1923 T23 Brescia, eventually triumphed with a points tally of 13,902. Second was the all-Italian teaming of Vesco and Vesco, starting number 137, in their 1934 Fiat 508 S Coppa. This team also stood on the winner’s podium in 2002, however in third place. In 2003 this place was occupied by another Italian team; Aghem and Conti in a Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 MMS.
