Sometimes, knowing someone results is a surprise. I’ve known Mike Marsh for a number of years. He created the EuroFest car and motorcycle shows that have been very popular with Deep South enthusiasts for a number of years. A few months ago, I received an email inviting me to a send-off party for John and Julie Herlihy, who were about to fly to Italy to run their 1953 Jaguar XK120 OTS Roadster in the Mille Miglia. Herlihy – that name sounded familiar, so I looked at the article about the Mille Miglia WarmUP. Turns out they had won the WarmUp in 2019 in their Jaguar. I knew I needed to interview them when they returned to the U.S. Anyone who could win the WarmUp was likely to do well in the Mille Miglia. Little did I know that they had done the Mille Miglia before and had done quite well. The interview was scheduled for shortly after their return at their lake front home.
