The 2018 edition of the Hemmings Great Race, sponsored by Hagerty Insurance, will start in Buffalo, New York on June 23rd. Will there be any Studebakers participating in this years event?

There is a guy for the LA chapter that has been in the Great Race for many years. Recently he has been running his 1964 hardtop, red with white top. I would assume he is running this one as well, but have not heard for sure. Howard Brown chapter president of the LA Chapter might know for sure.

The entire race will be held in the Northeast Zone I would like to rally the troops along the race route to support our favorite brand of automobile.

Do you just have to be able to get from point A to point B, or are there other things to consider when entering a car?

I'm hoping that Atlantic Canada Chapter members will be on hand for their stops in Moncton and Halifax.

Eddie,

I know a number of people who have competed, in the past. There are those contestants for whom the event is a ride in the county side, and fail to properly prepare. Then there are those who choose to compete, for whom it is a completely different event.

It's quite expensive just to enter the race, isn't it?

From what I understand it s expensive and your u are not allowed to use your speedometer, but another device that is installed. I am sure the race web page has the details on both.

Check the Hemmings website and it has extensive information on the Great Race. It lists stops along the way as overnight or luncheon etc and the rules. There are about 15 pages of information.
