The Great Race has announced the 2018 Event Regulations are posted and available for viewing on the website. There are no major changes again this year to the rules, but each contestant is responsible for reading and understanding the regulations. Obvious changes are the dates of the event and the promoted city stops, beginning with the start in Buffalo, New York on Saturday, June 23, and ending with the finish in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Sunday, July 1.
There are two regulations highlighted, and they are both in Section II. H. Equipment with numbers 2 and 4. They are:
(2) Wristwatches: In addition, the driver and navigator may each wear one approved analog wristwatch without stopwatch function. A digital wristwatch is prohibited.
(4) Any clock or watch that is self-correcting or self-synchronizing by using radio, cellular, or satellite/GPS technology is prohibited.

Thank you for your information i will keep reading.
BMW M-3 2003 can it be involved? I don’t see the types or yrs autos where made as being restricted anywhere or am I missing something?
in the rules under eligibility :VEHICLES
1. [GREAT RACE only] Vehicle entries must have been manufactured in 1972 or earlier.
I think each year the cut off is raised one year, so the age of the vehicles is 45 years, or greater.
1972 has been the cut-off year for several years. I don’t think it changes.
Nope. 1972 and older vehicles
There are other Rally Races for 2003 BMWs, like the Gumball Rally.
Where can I find the 2018 route with dates and city stops?
I would like to sign up for the great race in Agoura ca. Please help me!
How much is the entry fee ?
where do I find the 2019 route for the great race
My understanding is that the entry fee is still $5,000.00and has been for some time. QUERRY; Is it correct that the 2020 race is going to be somewhere in the South? Does anyone know for sure or can even scuttlebutt/gossip be provided by anyone about this upcoming race? My sincere thanks to even educated guesses because my intention is to participate in 2020 with my daughter, and that requires much planning.
Michael: The Private entry fee is $6,500 for 2019. The 2020 Great Race route will be announced in April of 2019, but no location has been determined. Please get on the waiting list at http://www.greatrace.com/waitinglist to get priority for the 2020 event.
