The rookie mentoring program that we began last year will be enhanced for 2012. Our goal is for new participants in this event to have a great experience and join this great sport in future years.
This year we intend to assign a veteran team to each rookie team before the race to assist with questions about car preparation, car calibration, how to rally, etc. Mentors will attend the rally school with their rookies and be available for assistance during the race.
Bill and Carolyn Croker (1936 Packard #70) will be the coordinators for this program.
If you are a Great Race veteran and would like to mentor a rookie team, please contact Bill and Carolyn at [email protected] or 530-432-0505.
If you are new to the Great Race and have questions about car preparation, rally equipment, car calibration or how to rally, contact Bill and Carolyn.

I am entered in the 2019 great race with two cars 1919 Mitchell and a 1958 corvette. I am in the need of 2 timewise speedometer hopefully used.
I also need of the need of 2 sawtooth rally clocks if they are available used.
I would like to acquire them sooner then later so I can practice and get started on my time charts done and verified.
We are also looking for a mentor to give us some guidance.
Thank you for your time.
Jeremy: Your mentor will contact you after this year’s race is finished. You can order new Timewise speedometers by contacting Jack Christensen at 847-550-5052 or at [email protected].
