You wait all year for the next Great Race…one month from today it all begins in Traverse City, Michigan! For the announcer, it’s time to learn those names, research the cars, review the past events, recall past special events, recall former champions, learn about sponsors and their messages; in other words the excitement and preparation is heating up. Not through part of Canada since 1996, I’m particularly thrilled that Great Race 2012 will pass through a large part of Ontario. The rally teams will see the rocks, trees and lakes of our country, with stops at Elliott Lake, Greater Sudbury, Parry Sound (Bobby Orr’s hometown), Barrie, Barry’s Bay, Kanata/Ottawa (MotorMouth’s hometown) and Kingston, prior to re-entering the USA!
Are you ready?
