    Motor Bella opening to the public Thursday despite rain

    Detroit — The Detroit Auto Dealers Association is going ahead Thursday with the first public day of Metro Detroit’s newest auto event, Motor Bella, despite a wet forecast and heavy rains pounding M1 Concourse event grounds in Pontiac from Tuesday evening through much of Wednesday. 

    Motor Bella, the DADA’s replacement for its North American International Auto Show, is a mostly outdoor event that gives consumers a chance to experience vehicles through test drives, product showcases and off-roading tracks. 

    The event kicked off Tuesday for the press and industry professionals, but the second industry and press day on Wednesday was canceled because of the rain. The public days for the event last through Sunday. 

    Over 24 hours starting Tuesday evening, 3.14 inches of rain was recorded at Detroit Metro Airport, while Pontiac received 1.9 inches, according to the National Weather Service. 

    Teams at M1 Concourse worked throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday to get the grounds ready for the public. Rain is expected to continue into Thursday.
