The 2021 Hemmings Motor News Great Race will start in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday, June 19, and finish in Greenville, S.C., on Sunday, June 27 on N Main St.
The Great Race, which began 38 years ago, is not a speed race, but a time/speed/distance rally. The vehicles, each with a driver and navigator, are given precise instructions each day that detail every move down to the second. They are scored at secret check points along the way and are penalized one second for each second either early or late. As in golf, the lowest score wins.
Upon crossing the finish line, the classic cars will park on Main St and spectators will be able to walk around and view the cars.
