Annual Italian Happening Car Hosted by M1 Concourse Track


The Pontiac-based M1 Concourse, an 87-acre racetrack, hosted more than 300 vehicles and motorcycles at the annual Italian Happening Car Show and Festival on Sunday, June 11, 2017. This year’s event marked the largest gathering of modern Italian exotics, supercars, and classics in Michigan, and the first time that the M1 Concourse was the host.

More than 6,000 people came for the event, which previously had been held at the Concours d’Elegance of America car show. Visitors even had a chance to test-drive one of four 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulias around the M1 track.

M1 Concourse is an 87-acre playground for auto enthusiasts that includes a secure community of 250+ Private Garages and a state-of-the-art 1.5-mile Performance Track with its own private Motorsports Club. M1 is a place where enthusiasts can keep, show and exercise their vehicles in the company of other enthusiasts and enjoy unforgettable experiences in a social setting unavailable to people who keep their cars at home or in a traditional storage facility. Plans for the development also include an open-air experiential walkable village of auto-focused retail businesses with year-round entertainment programming open to the public, including car shows, concerts, celebrity speakers, product demonstrations and more.
