Day 1 – Great Race Spring Rally presented by Stahls Automotive Collection

May 3, 2024

Last year, we started a new regional rally event with the support of our good friends at the Stahls Automotive Collection in Chesterfield, Michigan. The event’s original goal was to provide a three-day practice run for Great Race rookies and give the veterans another place to rally. Several thousand dollars in the prize fund took this from a simple practice rally to an intense competition. Last year, we had a surprisingly large turnout, and this year is even bigger! With more than 80 vehicles registered for competition, we kicked it off with a challenging day of rallying, which started with rain showers and cool temperatures. By lunch time, the showers had moved out and we enjoyed a scenic drive through rural Michigan on our way to the Packard Proving Grounds in Shelby Township, Michigan. We had a nice dinner in the event hall and got to check out the beautiful property and collection of Packard cars and engines. Tomorrow we head back out on the road with a stop at the Wills St. Claire Auto Museum and an evening gathering at Stahls Auto Museum, starting at 4pm. Check out our highlights from Day 1 of 3!
