Great Race Sports has announced that the milestone event from New York to Paris has been rescheduled for April 25, 2009, after being postponed from its original starting date this May.
The Great Race 2008: New York to Paris and related events was postponed after the Chinese government revoked travel permits for foreigners traveling throughout the country following demonstrations in Tibet and surrounding the Olympic Torch Run.
The 2009 dates are part of a complete event schedule released by Great Race. In addition to the new dates for the New York-to-Paris Great Race, some new events have been added to schedule, including a driving tour through California this fall and an historic recreation of an off-road race that took place a century ago.
