Here’s great event to get your Father’s Day weekend kicked off in style. Corvettes in the D will take place in the shadow of GM’s world headquarters in downtown Detroit. The second-year Corvette show runs 10am – 4pm on Saturday June 14th.
Corvettes in the D is once again being coordinated by Larry Courtney who also organizes the annual Corvettes on Woodward food drive each year in August. In addition to hosting hundreds of the best Corvettes in the area, you’ll be able to view the Corvette Racing Trailer and a C7.R Corvette. Also making an appearance will be the Atlantic and Pacific Corvettes which were unveiled by Chevrolet at SEMA last November. GM recently announced that these option packages will be available on the 2015 Corvette. Plans also include an autograph session as well as poster giveaways. The first 300 registrants will receive an event dash plaque.
The dynamic diagnostic duo of Paul Koerner and Brittany George will be presenting their popular seminar on how to repair and maintain your Corvette. Their session alone is well worth the price of admission.
Since the event will occur while the Corvette Racing team is competing in France, you’ll have plenty of fans around to help you cheer on our boys while they pursue another win in Lemans. Even though Pratt and Miller will be at Lemans there will still be a C7.R on display.
Food will be available courtesy of Andiamo Pizza Pie, a Detroit staple for many, many years. Those wishing to wander the Mother Ship can catch a shuttle provided by Matick Chevrolet from the show grounds over to GM’s World Headquarters in the nearby Renaissance Center.
Cost for Corvettes in the D is $10. Proceeds will be donated to the National Corvette Museum and the 2014 Michigan/Indiana/Western Kentucky Caravan. Click here to download the official event flyer.
