Follow Us on the Great Race 2015

After enduring flash flood warnings on Friday, the rain let up and all Spirit of Stahls teams got off to a fantastic start on day 1 of the Great Race 2015. We departed Kirkwood, Missouri, where there were huge crowds to see us all off. We are always amazed at the number of classic car fans that come out to see the racers. It’s a high energy scene that all the racers really appreciate. After departing at 10am, we arrived in downtown Rolla, Missouri for lunch. From there we headed to Springfield, Missouri for our first overnight. We’re on the way! To follow our exact movement, you can click on the link on the left hand side of the blog that says “FOLLOW US ON THE GREAT RACE 2015“. You can follow along on the trip tracker. Here are some of our snapshots from Day 1.

Our first ace for the trophy run. Getting an ace means you received no deductions or no additions to the pre-determined "perfect" time for that particular segment of the rally.

Team GTO is ready to get on the road!
