Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix – Labor Day Weekend - August 30th & 31st

NOTE: This is an advance announcement to allow you to make plans. We are waiting for a link to Ticket Master to be added to the Grand Prix web site. Once that is complete a formal announcement will be posted and you will be able to order the “smart corral” ticket packages at greatly reduced prices.

All smart owners worldwide are invited to the “smart corral” at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

The smart Michigan Users Group (sMUG – The Home Team) with the support of smart center Bloomfield, has made arrangements for a “smart corral” at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

Tickets include:
• Priority on island parking – leave and return as often as wanted
• Reserved Seats in Grandstand #3 (fantastic seats!)
• Access to the Firestone Paddock (where teams work on their cars)
• Parade Laps on the Track on Saturday at 7PM
• Drivers Autograph Session (in the paddock)
• smart Car Show Judging (categories TBD)
• Grand Prix Bucks (redeemable for food)
• Free Concert on Saturday at 6PM – Sugar Ray
• And much more…

sMUG – The Home Team is excited to be able to host this event and encourages you to attend and help make this the largest smart gathering in the USA. With Canada right across the river we expect an international flavor with both 450’s and 451’s in attendance.

We will have a small Welcome Center/Hospitality tent in the “smart 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 will add a link on their tickets page soon where you will be able to purchase these “smart 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 corral”. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this exciting sMUG – The Home Team sponsored event.

Please check back for complete pricing and ordering information on the “smart corral” packages available. Please note that you can select a package for 1 – 3 days. The packages are limited to two people per smart car.

I noticed at the bottom of the post that the deal was limited to 2 people per smart they think we are going to cram into them like circus clowns??? :o)
I think they were afraid that at these prices people were going to buy enough tickets for the entire circus
I think gates open at I plan to be there on Sunday at that time. For those who go Friday and/or Sat, I hope you will post about getting there and parking. I look forward to a great time!!!
JohnnyD -
The smart Corral is a special reserved parking area on the island only for smarts. That is one of the main benifits of this deal.

Normally there is NO parking allowed on the island for the GP. You must park in town and take a shuttle bus, which during busy times can be several hours wait.

With a parking pass for the smart Corral you can park on the island and come and go as much as you want.
That is great Roger!!! Man this is going to be a GREAT time....counting the days!!!!!
