2016 Great Race Entry List

For 2016, the Great Race will be held June 18 to June 26 and will extend from San Rafael, California to Moline, Illinois.  Once again this will be a spectacular event attracting hundreds of spectators at stops all along the rally route.  This rally attracts a wide range of vintage cars.  As was the case last year, there are a large number of entries from Japan.  In general the rally is very well received and the available entry spaces seem to fill up quickly.

The Great Race is a time-speed rally where the competitors are given a speed to travel over a given route or time, but are not permitted to use odometers of any kind.  The timing errors, if any, are factored according to the vehicle age.  Older vehicles get a more favorable factor so the entries tend to come from older cars, but the speeds are modern-day speeds over the competitive stages.  There are substantial cash prizes in this event which raises the competitive nature of this event among the top teams.  Others enter the Great Race mainly to enjoy the scenery and festive events along the route and for the pleasure of being around car people throughout the rally.
