THE GREAT RACE IS HEADED TO DOWNTOWN!
Downtown Mooresville is playing host as a stop on the National 2021 Great Race Rally as it travels from an Antonio, TX to Greenville, SC, bringing 120 of the world’s finest antique automobiles straight into the heart of Mooresville!
The Great Race, which began 38 years ago, takes its name from the 1965 movie which starred Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. It is not a speed race, but a time/ speed/distance rally. The vehicles, each with a driver and navigator, are given precise instructions each day that detail every move down to the second. Only cars built in 1974 and earlier are eligible for the event, with most entries having been manufactured before World War II. Each stop on the Great Race is free to the public and spectators will be able to visit with the participants and get a first-hand look at the cars. Read full press release here.
The Great Race event will take place from 5pm – 9pm with participating cars beginning to arrive at approximately 5:30pm.
A local car show preceding the Great Race arrival will take place from 12pm – 4pm with a DJ, music, great restaurants, and beer gardens on the street. Event is free to attend; separate costs for food/drinks. The car show display is limited to 75 VIP parking spots and a $25 registration is required per car*; proceeds will benefit the Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center. Register your car HERE. *displayed cars must vacate spaces by 4pm
