X-Cup refers to the student division of the Great Race, a cross-country vintage car rally, which was started in 1983 in part to pay tribute to the original 1908 “Great Race” from New York to Paris.
The Great Race, unlike the name implies, is a rally, not a high speed event.
It is a fierce competition of endurance, precision and accuracy. Following precise instructions that detail time, speed and navigation, teams work together to arrive at the finish line at an exact time each day.
Speeds are carefully regulated to 5 mph under the posted speed limit in most cases, and cars must be 1972 model year or older.
The X-Cup division is designed specifically for younger teams whose members are in high school and college. Drivers must be 22 or older and navigators must be 21 and under.
Often, faculty advisors will serve as drivers for teams.
It take patience, perseverance and, most importantly, teamwork to win the X-Cup division.
Competitors not only develop automotive and rally skills, they create friendships and build character as they prepare their cars and compete together as a team.
The X-Cup division provides an incredible opportunity for students as well as mentors and teachers to immerse themselves in team building, problem solving and collector cars, all on the tremendous stage of the Great Race.
