The race offers classic, vintage and antique car and rally enthusiasts an opportunity to engage in a competitive rally while enjoying their cars. The participants enjoy the camaraderie of automobile enthusiasts, develop their navigation and driving skills and compete for significant prize money in four competition categories.
The Great Race is a timed, navigation, controlled speed endurance race. It is conducted on public roads with all specified speeds at or below the speed limits. The objective of the race is to match the precise time allowed for each section of the race by the rally master. The teams are issued Course Instructions each morning. The emphasis is on precise driving, speed control and accurate navigation. It is not difficult. However, excellent scores require skill on the part of both the driver and navigator.
The cars will arrive in Kingman starting at 11:45 a.m. at one-minute intervals for three hours. Spectator parking will be located in the Mohave Museum parking lot, 600 feet to the west of the Powerhouse.
