If the Saturday morning on June 21 is anything like this morning (June 7), it will be glorious! As Great Race teams do their countdown to the start, MotorMouth goes through a similar routine with slightly different purpose. By now I have the names and backgrounds of all teams, their hometowns, their vehicles, and past experiences with Great Race…wow…like 39 rookie teams!. A big thing for me is to highlight the names of drivers, navigators and hometowns that might present a pronunciation challenge; it’s up to me to have the details correct by the time those teams role to the start line in Ogunquit. Sponsor tags, host city backgrounds, key players at local levels…all of the things that make the arrival and introduction of of the Great Race teams at every venue are the things most concerning to me, right now.
The anticipation grows with each preparatory step I make! Are you ready? Are there things you need me to know? A quick note to MotorMouth at firstname.lastname@example.org could really help us both!
Here’s to meeting you in Ogunquit!
