The final stage of the 2010 Mille Miglia saw participants travel from the Italian capital of Roma back the starting city of Brescia. The day started at 7:00 AM to rainy conditions, but as the group progressed north through Siena and Firenze, rain soon gave way to beautiful sunny weather. Rich cultural heritage, gorgeous Tuscan landscapes and scenic mountain passes greeted drivers along their journey, and after roughly 660 miles and 15 hours, entrants began making their way across the finish line back in Brescia. In total, drivers travelled roughly 1,400 kilometers with times of about 35 hours, and all 15 of the Mercedes team vehicles successfully completed the race. One participant, Uschi Glas, who made the journey with her husband in a 300 SL Gullwing, said she was blown away by the atmosphere in Italy during the Mille Miglia, and the entire Mercedes team looks forward to competing again next year in the 2011 Mille Miglia.
