M1 Concourse to Display Classic, Custom Vehicles at AutoRama


The M1 Concourse — an 80-acre condo development and race track for car enthusiasts — will feature a display that includes a 53-foot race trailer, four show cars, and $1.6 million supercar this weekend at the 64th AutoRama Detroit at Cobo Center.

“We have a partnership with Eleetus Simulators so people will have the ability to come in and race cars on real tracks virtually with a full-motion simulator,” says Brad Oleshansky, founder and CEO of M1 Concourse. “We are also unveiling our logo for our track called the Champion Motor Speedway (1.5-mile performance track).”

Oleshansky says the display will include a Porsche 918 Spyder, a 1951 Pontiac lowrider custom car, a 1971 Camaro, and a 2016 military specification Hummer converted into a modern era car with a new engine and transmission. The 53-foot race trailer will be used as a high-end VIP lounge for owners visiting AutoRama.

He says the M1 Concourse, a $60-million project located on the northwest corner of Woodward Avenue and South Boulevard in Pontiac, is set to open its first phase of development to the public in May. The first phase of the project, which includes 80 private garages, has sold out.

“We’ve started construction for phase two and are three-quarters sold out,” Oleshansky says. “We are getting ready to deliver our first 20 garages in phase one next month.”

The development will also include an auto-themed restaurant, a village of auto-focused businesses, year-round entertainment, and up to 100,000 square feet of single or multi-tenant office space.

The AutoRama Detroit show runs from Feb. 26-28. For more information, click here.
