Barrie, Ontario – The 26th annual Georgian College Auto Show, held in Barrie, Ontario, will move to June this year from its normal fall schedule.
The show will run June 3-5, 2011. “This move will allow us to make better use of space on college property,” said Stephanie Titus, director of media relations for the 2011 Auto Show Committee. “We also hope to take advantage of warmer weather. Our theme this year is Change, Adapt, Imagine and we are looking forward to the new season for our show, adapting to the change, and imagining the possibilities it will present for us.”
Billed as the largest outdoor student-run auto show in North America, the event attracts more than 20,000 visitors each year. Organized by the students attending the college’s Canadian Automotive Institute at the campus, the show will include rides in a Porsche 911 by professional drivers around a wet Pfaff Porsche Test Track, an interactive entertainment area for children, classic cars, exotic vehicles, car care clinics and live music.
Professional race car driver Kyle Marcelli will be signing autographs at various times throughout the weekend, and an auction featuring items donated by car manufacturers and local businesses will be held on June 5 at 1 p.m. For more information, visit Georgian College Auto Show.
