Detroit Grand Prix & Chevy Volt

Postby trb » Tue Jun 05, 2012 3:25 am

This past weekend I read a piece in the Detroit Free Press regarding the Detroit Grand Prix. Chevrolet was the sponsor and it appears that a group of Volt owners were invited to the Hamtramck Assy. Plant (Where the Volt is Built) and then were allowed to run a "silent" :ugeek: lap on the Grand Prix course with their Volt. I'm not sure if this took place on May 31st or June 1st but was curious if anyone attended. I was disappointed to read about this in the paper, after the fact, and would loved to have been invited as I purchased my Volt in a suburb of Detroit. If anyone attended how did you hear about this event???

I knew about the tour of the Hamtramck plant and the silent lap before the fact... but it was by invitation only.... And I have no idea how one got an invitation. I am hoping that having just purchased our Volt in april.... that was not enough time for my paperwork to have made it through the system! Maybe we will have better luck next year.

By the way there is an electric vehicle show at Schoolcraft College in Livonia on Saturday June 8 from 9 am to 4pm

I didn't realize the event was by invite only. From what I read the 50 Volts had a police escort from the assy. plant to the Grand Prix track. Like you said, maybe next year!
Thanks for the link to the Livonia event, it looks interesting too.
