Detroit, MI – May 30, 2017 – The Trans Am presented by Pirelli Championships are welcomed this weekend by the Verizon IndyCar Series and IMSA at the fan festive venue of Belle Isle Park located in the original Motor City, Detroit. The 3-Dimensional Services Group Motor City 100 is set to get underway early morning at 8:45am ET on Saturday, June 3.
The No. 7 GoShare Corvette C7.R is coming off a terrific run at Road Atlanta where team principal and driver Claudio Burtin climbed to a fourth place finish after starting ninth and driving through some hard pressed action on track. The momentum from back-to-back podium finishes out west at Willow Springs and California Speedway are strong indications that the Burtin team is on point with the GoShare Corvette developments and race preparations.
“This is a really great opportunity to race at Detroit in front of America’s automotive headquarters,” exclaimed Claudio Burtin. “The Belle Isle circuit requires a unique setup with the car to handle the bumps. We should have a good car for the race! Spring and summer are amazing in Michigan – I don’t think most people realize though how hot it can be out here. This is my crew chief Gary Selix and his son Gary James Selix hometown so I’m going to go especially hard for them!”
The stage will be set this weekend for a very exciting and competitive street fight in the home of American automotive muscle. Detroit is a historic place for motorsport and that goes decades back in the history books for Trans Am and Chevrolet. Drivers and teams will look to standout with the best results in front of the Motor City crowd this weekend.
