The debut Motor Bella is set for this September, and organizers are fleshing out exactly what the event will entail.

Expect an “auto-centric” event with a variety of performance cars on the M1 course. The event will offer test rides in electric vehicles, an off-road course with new SUVs, new cars from a variety of manufacturers and technology demos, among other activities.

Attendees will also be able to ride in performance vehicles with professional drivers.

Motor Bella, in essence, stands in for this year’s North American International Auto Show, which will return in 2022. Organizers, however, say this event is not replacing the North American International Auto Show. Instead, it’s envisioned as an outdoor compliment to the show.

The event is set for Sept. 23 to 26 on an 87-acre lot with a 1.5 miles track. Up to 40,000 people will be able to attend each day.
