Updated And Revised 2018 Great Race Route

I have been advised that the 2018 route of the Great Race has been revised and updated.  The locations of the overnight stops and the lunch stops have been provided  The new route is shown below.

Updated And Revised 2018 Great Race Route

I think that the revised portions of the route through Maine and New Brunswick are better and I like the idea of spending more time in Nova Scotia.  I will miss not going over into Prince Edward Island, but I understand the scheduling issues.

It is good to see that the route will visit Mount Washington, where there have been many hill climb events held there since the 1930s.

Brock Yates 1933 – 2016


Brock Yates was one of my favourite automotive authors. Sad to hear of his passing after a long illness.

Read about Brock’s life and times including his famous involvement with the Cannonball Run.
