Although the annual Woodward Dream Cruise doesn’t officially start until Saturday, that hasn’t stopped Corvette fans from hitting the historic avenue a bit early.
Detroit’s Fox 2 reporter Amy Andrews interviewed Indy car driver and this year’s winner of the Detroit Grand Prix Helio Castroneves, who was driving an Arctic White 2014 Corvette Stingray with black racing stripes down Woodward Avenue this morning at 7:30 am.
For those of you not familiar with the Woodward Dream Cruise, its pretty much become a tradition in the Motor City as up to 1.5 million people will come out and line the streets of Woodward to view the thousands and thousands of classic, new, exotic and off-beat vehicles driving past.
Helio speaks of the great tradition of Woodward and the ability to view all kinds of cars. Given the choice to drive any car at Woodward, Helio throws props out for the 2014 Corvette Stingray but says if he could pick any car, he would choose a classic 1967 Corvette Sting Ray.
Helio will be missing the official Saturday Dream Cruise as Indy Car is racing this weekend in Milwaukee. But he’s hoping next year the racing schedule won’t include a stop on the same weekend because he definitely wants to be in Detroit to take in all the excitement of the world’s largest automotive event.
