GM to open "Autotainment" facility in Vegas

On April 10, the corner of Paradise Road and Sahara Avenue will be transformed when General Motors officially opens the doors of “The Drive.” The unique, hands-on driving facility will offer what GM calls a first-of-its-kind “autotainment” experience. “The Drive” will feature two professionally-designed driving courses, including a half-mile high-performance loop and an off-road adventure with two trails over a dirt terrain. Located at the Sahara Hotel & Casino and just steps from The Strip, “The Drive” is situated on 11 acres leased by GM from the hotel. For the duration of the project, GM will also be a marketing and advertising partner of the Las Vegas Monorail Company, and will have the only brand presence at the monorail station at the Sahara Hotel & Casino, currently the most northern point of the Las Vegas Monorail system. Initial vehicle choices to be unleashed on the Performance course will include: the Chevy Corvette coupe and convertible; Pontiac GTO, Cadillac CTS-V; Pontiac Solstice roadster; Cadillac STS-V; Saab 9-3 convertible; and Chevy SSR. For the off-road course, the Hummer H2 and H3 will be on hand.

Just went and checkout the "Autotainment" center. I was lucky today it was just a preview day for certain people, and me and my wife walked up to it about 20 minutes before they closed, and the lady that was at the front door just said we could come in. I thought I was going to have to pay, or something, but I didn't !! It was fun the race around the little track with the Vette, and take the cool off road course with the H2. Anyone that's going to be in that area in Vegas should go and check it out. Oh ! and for anyone that is in Vegas tommorow, the 4/8, it's also free for anyone tommorow also !!!!
