    Re: Great American Race

    Any chance this new race route will swing by Philadelphia or Eastern Pennsylvania ?
    We have quite a few old car folks around here that would be thrilled to see it come our way !

    Re: Great American Race

    This sounds like our sort of event. Any chance of some assistance to bring our 1934 Lagonda Rapier from Australia. Sorry we do not need the services of a chase car or a trailer, no not even a crew of mechanics in white coveralls and baseball caps.

    Re: Great American Race

    I received this email today.

    Prospective Great Race Entrants:

    We would like to remind you that the discounted entry fee deadline is February 28. For those of you who have already entered, thank you for your entry. We will be assigning Car Numbers on March 7. Veteran Racers who would like to retain their Car Number should register by February 28; after that date Car Numbers will be assigned on an as-requested basis.

    The entry form is posted on The Hemming's Motor News Great Race presented by Coker Tire .

    We have added an optional pre-race Warm-up Rally for you on Friday, June 10. We recommend that you arrive in Chattanooga on Wednesday or Thursday so that you can Register and have your vehicle inspected on Thursday, to be ready for Rally School Friday morning and the Warm-up Rally Friday afternoon. Don Currie is returning to be Chief Technical Inspector.

    A preliminary Event Schedule is also posted on The Hemming's Motor News Great Race presented by Coker Tire .

    We have a great Great Race planned for you this year. Here are some of this year’s features:

    Relatively short days: The longest day is less than 270 miles, and the average day’s run is about 225 miles. No 450-mile days this year.

    Relatively late starts: The preliminary schedule has only one morning start earlier than 7:30, with the majority of start times at 8:00 or later. This applies to your Support Crew also.. No early starts for them either; they can depart each morning any time they want.

    Hosted lunch for racers every day, a Great Race tradition.

    Hosted dinners every evening: This is new. We have arranged a hosted dinner each evening for your entire team, including your Support Crew.. These dinners include a pre-race dinner at Coker Tire Headquarters Friday evening, and an Awards Banquet at a country club in Bennington, Vermont, hosted by Hemmings Motor News.

    Beautiful scenery: We follow the Appalachian Mountains from Tennessee to Vermont, finishing in…

    A new state: Great Race has never been to Vermont before. This will be the 45th state in our 26-year history. Vermont is the epitome of scenic New England, with its small-town charm, white-steepled churches, and covered bridges.

    Great roads: With relatively short days, there is no need for long stretches on Interstate Highways. Other than the Speedometer Calibration Run each morning, most of each day’s run is on local roads and County and State highways.

    Automobile Museums: Five of our hosted stops are at Automobile Museums.

    A hosted lunch in Cooperstown, New York: Racers will have extra time to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    A hosted lunch at Stratton Mountain, Vermont: Racers will have extra time to enjoy a gondola ride from the Base Lodge to the top of the famed ski resort, with a spectacular view of Vermont’s Green Mountains.

    Convenient hotels: In all cities, Racers are in either one or two hotels. In each city where we are in two hotels, they are within ˝ mile of each other. We have negotiated great reduced rates and all of the savings have been passed on to you. You can now register for your event hotels by using the on-line registration web site of our Travel Agent, ADTRAV: http://events.signup4.com/greatrace2011 .
    The Event Regulations are currently posted on The Hemming's Motor News Great Race presented by Coker Tire . If you have any questions, fell free to contact any of us.
