Postat av Johan Meissner kl 23:14

Three days of adventures in Mille Miglia 2011 for Jan ”Flash” Nilsson and Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte are over.
”We have completed 1500 kilometers in 30 degree heat, in rain, in darkness, over mountains, in valleys, on motorways and big cities. I had not realized the shear size of the event,” said ”Flash”.

The two Flash Engineering drivers took turns in driving the Porsche 550 Spyder during the event that was held on the roads between Bologna and Rome.
”It was a great race. Exciting, fun and challenging,” said Prince Carl Philip.

The stages were held on open roads where it was all about hitting a pre-set time.
”It was challenging, putting it mildly, to get through rush hour of Rome and at the same time chasing the ideal time,” said ”Flash”.

The interest of the race is immense with large number of spectators and a proper interest from manufacturers all over the world.
”The car industry and politicians of Sweden should send representatives to the race to learn about how to take proper care and create emotions for a brand. I am really impressed over how the race and all the events alongside the race was done,” said ”Flash”.

With Mille Miglia 2011 over the focus for ”Flash” and Prince Carl Philip is set on the coming STCC and Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia weekend at Mantorp Park.
”We are ready for the rest of the season, we are testing on thursday ahead of the weekend and it is time to step it all up now,” said ”Flash”.

”Flash” and Prince Carl Philip raced for Team State of Art alongside the two dutch Princes Maurits and Bernhard van Oranje-Nassau, seen to the right of ”Flash” and Prince Carl Philip in the picture above, and former F1 driver Gijs Van Lennep and the previous Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Jan Peter Balkenende, seen to the left in the picture.
