2016 Chevrolet Camaro Debuts in Detroit Tomorrow

Enthusiasts from U.S. and Canada expected for daylong Camaro celebration


DETROIT (Friday, May 15, 2015) – More than 1,000 people are expected to join Chevrolet for the debut of the all-new Chevrolet Camaro tomorrow on Detroit’s scenic Belle Isle where hundreds of those attending will be Camaro enthusiasts – and their cars – from 35 States and Canada.

A day-long Camaro celebration begins at 8:30 a.m. with a caravan of more than 350 Camaros around the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix course. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. enthusiasts can tour a museum of historic Camaro models, ride in a Camaro Z/28 hot lap around the race course, and drive many current Chevrolet products.

Available spots for attenders were claimed within hours of the public invitation. An additional 2,400 enthusiasts are on a waiting list.

“The number of guests really speaks to the passion owners have for Camaro,” said Shane Peever, brand manager, Chevrolet in Canada. “We wished to accommodate more people on Belle Isle, but are limited by space for the reveal itself. For those fans who registered on the wait list, Chevrolet provide an exclusive sneak-preview of the new Camaro just before the reveal.”

All enthusiasts can follow the May 16 events online at thecamarosix.com (http://www.chevrolet.com/2016-camaro/), which will serve as the hub of all information, photos and video.
