PONTIAC, MI – A new enthusiast venue in Southeast Michigan called the M1 Concourse has got the Detroit area car community buzzing. It’s a place where car owners can enjoy their passion for all things automotive and motorsports by having their own private “car condo” garage surrounded by other enthusiasts, plus on-site repair and restoration shops, restaurants and even a performance track. Champion Motor Speedway is a 1.5-mile road course that serves as the central feature of the M1 Concourse, which is located right on famed Woodward Avenue in Pontiac, Michigan. Other facilities there include a multi-purpose outdoor event arena with a 2.5 acre skid-pad, and covered event spaces that can accommodate groups of 500 people.
As a means of gaining local notoriety among enthusiasts in the region, the M1 Concourse has hosted various small events for folks to get a glimpse of the facility, track, and garage area. A few months back we posted a gallery from a “Cars and Coffee” hosted by Car and Driver which attracted so many cars that the show field overflowed onto the track itself! A few weeks later in early October, M1 hosted a Mustang and Shelby event for various regional Mustang clubs to display their ‘Stangs on-site for a car show and a lead-follow track session. Steve Amman of Ford Performance drove his ’01 Bullitt equipped with his video camera to capture all the action. He first filmed the show field and then mounted his camera to his car during the on-track lead-follow session before sharing the video with us. Enjoy!
