The 22st edition of the 1000 Millas Sport was held November 25-28, 2010 in the Patagonia region of Argentina’s Andes mountains. Argentina’s version of the Mille Miglia Storica consists of 150 participants driving pre-1980 automobiles over 1000 miles of some of the most breathtaking roads in the world.
The base of operations for the 1000 Millas Sport Argentina was the Llao Llao Hotel, which is located on one of the lower mountains within the Nahuel Huapi National Park – Argentine Patagonia – between the Nahuel Huapi and Moreno lakes, and framed by Mt. López, Mt. Capilla and Mt. Tronador. At the end of each day, the drivers and cars got much-needed rest at the hotel, in addition to enjoying big meals and parties.
The 1000 Millas Sport is part of the FIVA world calendar, featuring FIVA Sport vehicles, grouped as follows: Sport, Grand Touring and Touring – all approved under FIVA regulations. The Club de Automoviles Sport de la Argentina, organizer of the event and founded in 1948, has always been characterized in respecting and growing the culture of classic cars. The 1000 Millas Sport is an obvious demonstration of their values.
