The Australian F1 Grand Prix is set to return to the streets of Melbourne as part of an action packed motorsport weekend from April 7-10. In the lead up to Sunday afternoon’s race, GMSV will showcase its newest models, including its Chevrolet Camaro Supercar.
“The whole city is buzzing with excitement to have its treasured race weekend back and GM Specialty Vehicles are thrilled to be a part of all the action this year,” marketing, customer service and communications general manager Jodie Lennon said.
“GMSV is all about handpicking some of the very best of what GM has to offer and bringing it to motoring enthusiasts in Australia and New Zealand. What better place than the Grand Prix to show off our latest and greatest products.”
The recently launched Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty will command a majority share of the GMSV display in Champions Gateway, due in no small part to its large and imposing presence.
In keeping with the performance theme of the weekend, a special draw card will be the new, right-hand drive C8 Corvette Stingray.
“The response to C8 has been absolutely phenomenal, it’s such a dramatic car to look at, let alone drive, and we’re looking forward to introducing fans of all ages to this iconic vehicle.”
The Supercars also make a return to the Albert Park street circuit, with drivers and teams competing for Championship points as part of the Melbourne round.
A particular highlight for many race goers, and their ears, will be the Victorian debut of the Gen3 Camaro ZL1 Supercar, which will make its race debut at the start of the 2023 Supercars Championship season.
“The Gen3 Camaro Supercar will be on the track at various stages in the weekend’s programme,” Chevrolet Racing general manager Chris Payne said.
“It will be looking resplendent in its new black livery and will also create a cacophony of noise thanks to its Chevrolet Racing 5.7 litre LTR V8 engine,” he added.
“It arrives in Melbourne fresh from testing and a visit to Tasmania as part of the most recent round. It’s a real treat to have it here for race fans to see and hear.”
