We will have a small Welcome Center/Hospitality tent in the smart car corral and smart center Bloomfield will be giving away promotional smart t-shirts to the first 100 owners that enter the “smart corral” on Saturday or Sunday.

The Detroit Grand Prix web site has a link on their tickets page where you can purchase these smart car corral packages directly.

IMPORTANT! Please reply on this thread if you will be attending so we can estimate the number of smarties to plan for at the smart car corral. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this exciting sMUG – The Home Team sponsored event.

The ticket packages are available to smart owners in association with a smart Corral at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.  This will enable the smart owners to park in a designated parking area near the entrance to our venue and have easy access to drive on and off the island throughout the day.  They will also have reserved grandstand seating and access to the Firestone Paddock where both the IndyCar Series and American Le Mans Series teams work on their race cars throughout the day.  Additionally, the Grand Prix Bucks are redeemable for food and beverages from concession stands throughout the venue or can be used to purchase an Official Program from the Box Office.

So far there are 25 cars and climbing! Two cars are 450's from Canada and several custom cars from smart center Bloomfield. I will post some photos later tonight.

Change of plans for me :-( Chrysler is sending me to their plant just west of Chicago for Labor Day Weekend to work. So know my mom and daughter will be taking my spot, along with my smart car, at the Detroit Grand Prix on Saturday. My son and his girl friend will be there around 3pm.
