The Mille Miglia, like other similar races (the older Targa Florio and the later Carrera Panamericana), made Gran Turismo class cars popular and made car brands such as Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati and Porsche famous.

The Mille Miglia has always been run on public roads that were not even blocked during the race. Therefore, the organizers had to put up special signs throughout the entire route in order to orient the riders. Later, this arrow-shaped pointer became the official symbol of the Mille Miglia.

Mille Miglia was organized by two young people, Aymo Maggi and Franco Mazzotti, after their hometown of Brescia lost the Italian Grand Prix to Monza. Together with a company of wealthy supporters, they chose the route from Brescia to Rome and back. The length of the distance was equal to 1600 km (1000 miles), which gave the name to the race.
