As part of JD’s sponsorship and commitment to the Mille Miglia as a key event partner, we were delighted to host the ‘JD Classics Welcome Lounge’ at the Competitor base in Brescia, serving Champagne, refreshments and canapés to drivers and co-pilots to the 450 historic entrant cars. Our 25 strong team of competition support technicians, engineers and event staff shared the exciting pre-race atmosphere with our clients and the many competitors we got to know for the first time over the three preparation and scrutineering days.
For JD, the Mille Miglia is all about ensuring our clients experience of ‘The Most Beautiful Race in the World’ is one of pure - uninterrupted - enjoyment. The JD event team’s commitment and dedication is extraordinary – a level of total support unmatched at the event.
But our job all begins at our restoration facility in Maldon in the UK, where we start preparing Mille Miglia team cars (both JD vehicles and those of our customers) many months in advance – in fact we have already begun on our 2016 entrant cars. Many thousands of hours will be spent on these vehicles in the pristine JD Race Shop, on-track and on-road testing to deliver uncompromising reliably and performance in Italy over the four all important May competition days.
