The Great Race
The Great Race is the world’s premiere old car rally, a $150,000 prize event that this year will bring 120 of the world’s finest antique automobiles to historic Austin. Each stop on The Great Race is free to the public and spectators can visit with the participants and check out the cars for several hours. Kids will often climb right in the cars for a first-hand look. Over the decades, The Great Race has stopped in hundreds of cities big and small, from quaint Austin, Nevada to New York City. “When The Great Race pulls into a city it becomes an instant festival,” race director Jeff Stumb said. “Last year we had three overnight stops with more than 10,000 spectators on our way to a total of 250,000 people experiencing The Great Race.” For more information, call The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce at 775-964-2200 and visit greatrace.com
