Mil Milhas Brasil


The Mil Milhas Brasil (also known as the Mil Milhas Brasileiras or 1000 Miles of Brazil in Portuguese) is a sports car endurance race held annually in Brazil since 1956.

The first Mil Milhas was organized by Eloy Gagliano and Wilson Fittipaldi Sr., the father of Wilson Fittipaldi Júnior and Emerson Fittipaldi. The two had been inspired by the 1949 Italian Mille Miglia. Wilson Fittipaldi Sr. was a journalist and brought media as well as sponsors such as auto parts companies to support the event. The first event was held on November 2425, 1956 with 31 sports cars competing at the Interlagos circuit.

The Mil Milhas has been held nearly every year since its inception and is one of the longest running motor racing events in Brazil. Nearly every running has used the Interlagos circuit, but the 1997 and 1999 events were held at Jacarapagua and Curitiba respectively.

In 2007, the race was held as a part of the Le Mans Series, the first time the race had been part of an international championship. The event had previously been supported as a non-championship event in the BPR Global GT Series as well as the FIA GT Championship. FIA GT planned to add the event to their calendar in 2007, but chose to hand the event instead to Le Mans Series organizers.
