Details of the 2012 Great Race Route Announced

The details of the route for the 2012 Great Race have been announced.  As noted in a previous post on this site, the 2012 Great Race route will start in Traverse City, MI, circle many of the Great Lakes, and then return to Dearborn, MI for the finish.  The almost circular route should make the logistics for this event a little easier for the 2012 Great Race participants.

This will be a challenging route and the 2012 Great Race oganizers have planned on some interesting stops.  Many of these roads are in areas that I am very familiar with and I’m sure that the 2012 Great Race participants will be pleased.

      I do not have the details of the actual route that the cars will travel.

      Hopefully you can get to see these cars and talk to the competitors at on of the stops. As a rally navigator, I would like to compete in a Great Race sometime.

      If you do catch up with the Great Race cars, please take some pictures and forward some to me. I would like to post them on my website.

      Regards,
      Steve McKelvie
