In 1908 the "horseless carriage" was a novelty which many considered a frail toy, certainly not suited for long distance travel. That would all change when the 1908 Great Race from New York to Paris was run with six teams form Italy, France, Germany, and the United States (at the suggestion of then President Teddy Roosevelt). After 22,000 miles and 169 days the American Thomas Flyer and it's driver George Schuster* won the historic event, changing forever the course of the automobile. *Inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame
Early planning has begun to make this event both historic and memorable. You will be making your own history for generations to come!
Want to enjoy the scenic and cultural wonders we will encounter? Special efforts will be made to accommodate the particular interests of the participants, as we circle the globe in this "bucket list" lifetime experience.
On the 110th Anniversary of the legendary 1908 test of men and machines, we will begin our journey June 2018 in Times Square heading west to San Francisco. The vehicles will board a ship bound for Yokohama, Japan then enter the continent of Asia at the port of Vladivostok, Russia. Paralleling the Trans-Siberian Railroad we head for Moscow, on to Berlin and achieve our own personal victories when we reach the Eiffel Tower, Paris in October 2018.
