The route for the 2018 Great Race (Rally) was recently announced. Start point will be Buffalo NY in late June and the finish point is in Halifax NS. This route will be exposed to a few thousand Studebaker afficionados as it goes through New York State, Quebec, New England and the Maritime Provinces.

Usually a few Studebakers enter this event. Hopefully many members will chime in with regular news about Studebaker entries and hopefully close-at-hand chapters will organize viewing events at the stopovers. The Buffalo start point will be really close at hand to SDC chapters in Ontario, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The finish will attract members from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and New England.

Hi Peter, the Hamilton Chapter is hoping to also. What a neat event. A few years back they came through Grimsby Ontario and it was neat to see them.

Before the kick-off, those in the area of Niagara on the Lake, are welcome to start with breakfast at my brothers house!

Is Dr. Fate going to run his Hannibal 8 in it? "Push the button, Max...."
