As guests of Jaguar, Riddle found itself in the sunny climes of Brecia, Italy, yesterday for the start of the Mille Miglia – the heritage car rally which takes in 1,000 miles of road between this small city in the country’s north to Rome and back.

Among the guests mingling pre-race on a sun-kissed veranda overlooking the city were Jodie Kidd and David Gandy, who are co-driving a Jaguar XK120 despite David’s hair-raising (and soaking) experiences last time round;“For three solid days… I was sleep deprived, had stones embedded in my skin, was cold, soaked, hungry, lost my voice and at one point was hung virtually up side down,” he wrote in his Vogue blog.

As these pictures reflect, the pair got off to a flying start. More on how their race pans out later… riddle_stop 2
