IndyCar to tie its Detroit races in with Detroit Auto Show
Will IndyCar adjust it's schedule so the Detroit Races can kickoff or end the Detroit Auto Show - they can both help each other with fantastic co-events.....or will they be asleep at the wheel again and miss a golden opportunity?
The Detroit Auto Dealers Association, which organizes the North American International Auto Show in downtown Detroit, is preparing to shift the annual show to June, The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News reported Monday.
After months of deliberations, show organizers are finalizing a plan to move the annual show from its longtime January date to June in 2020, with an announcement expected July 24, the News said, citing industry sources close to the situation.
The June date would be "the cornerstone of an outdoor automotive celebration around Cobo Center and other downtown landmarks," the News said.
Downtown Detroit has seen a revival in recent years, with new stores, hotels, galleries, and restaurants and sports venues.
The Free Press reported show organizers are eager to offer outdoor events that include vehicle test drives and demos of technologies on the rooftop parking lot of Cobo Center, where the show has been staged for years, as well as nearby public streets.
A major goal of the new date "is to provide a vibrant new stage to demonstrate new vehicles and technologies like self-driving cars," the Free Press said.
A promotional video from organizers shows vehicles being driven around a track on the roof of Cobo Center and an off-road course for SUVs in front of the city's convention center.
