Great Race To Make Stop In New Bern

About 100 vintage cars competing in an annual car race will make a stop at the Colonial Capital Wednesday.

The 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race began Saturday with its starting point in Maine and is heading to stopover in New Bern Wednesday.

The Great Race gives antique, vintage, and collector cars a chance to compete under controlled-speeds on public highways.

Drivers travel below or at the speed limit and are tested on their ability to follow assigned course instructions and how well they endure on a cross-country trip. Participating vintage cars must be 1972 or older.

About 109 vintage cars participating in the race will line Middle Street, arriving at one-minute intervals until all cars are seen.

Classic cars lining up on Middle Street for an overnight stay will arrive one-by-one around 5:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The nine-day journey spanning 11 states will end Sunday finishing at The Villages, Florida.
