We’ve been waiting on this day all year! This morning, we dropped the Green Flag at beautiful Rocky Point State Park in Warwick, Rhode Island. Actually, the green flag duties were handled by Rhode Island Governor Daniel McKee and Warwick Mayor Frank Picozzi. An estimated crowd of 10,000 people swarmed the park and lined the streets throughout Warwick to wave farewell to the racers. It was an epic way to start the 2022 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Drivers Club! From Warwick, we headed into Connecticut, on a scenic route through small towns, rolling hills and beautiful historic homes. As the afternoon wore on, the racers were faced with a challenging set of instructions, but were able to come off the clock and enjoy a fun afternoon with a Pit Stop at Wayne Carini’s F40 Motorsports in Portland, Connecticut, and then a great evening stop at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. The temperatures dropped and so did some precipitation as the cars made their way in to the Parc Ferme. We were able to check out the museum and eat a great dinner inside. Congratulations to Eric Frankenberger and Aaron Read for winning the day with an astonishing 2 second score! They got 4 aces with only 5 checkpoints!
