2016 Great Race to stop in Rawlins June 22

Rawlins, Wyo., will host a lunch stop on the 2016 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Wednesday, June 22, race organizers have announced.

The Great Race, the world’s premiere old car rally, will bring 120 of the world’s finest antique automobiles downtown to the historic depot for the $150,000 event.

The race will start June 18 in San Rafael, Calif., and finish June 26 in Moline, Ill., on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Along the 2,400-mile route, competitors will travel parts of the Lincoln Highway in six states – California, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Iowa and Illinois – in addition to a side trip to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore and the Badlands.

The Great Race, which began 33 years ago, is not a speed race, but a time/speed/distance rally. The vehicles, each with a driver and navigator, are given precise instructions each day that detail every move down to the second. They are scored at secret check points along the way and are penalized one second for each second either early or late. As in golf, the lowest score wins.

The cars will arrive in Rawlins starting at 11:50 a.m. at one-minute intervals for two hours. Each stop on the Great Race is free to the public and spectators will be able to visit with the participants and to look at the cars for several hours. It is common for kids to climb in the cars for a first-hand look. The Carbon County Visitor Council is helping with plans locally.
