|(from a Chrysler Group press release)|
Have you ever wanted to be a professional test driver? Going fast on a tight course and squealing the tires in the turns, just like on TV? Or maybe you've always wanted to take a 4x4 on an off-road adventure over logs and through rivers? Houston-area residents will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to try out all of these things in a controlled setting when Chrysler Group's "Full Throttle Test Drive Event" comes to Sam Houston Race Park on Saturday, Nov. 4 and Sunday, Nov. 5.
Consumers are being invited to test drive the full line of 2007 Chrysler, Jeep(R) and Dodge products, including the all-new Chrysler Sebring, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Dodge Nitro, on three specially designed test tracks. One track will showcase the ride and handling of the Chrysler Group's passenger cars and a second track will feature the off-road capability of sport-utility vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee and Commander.
The third track will be dedicated to demonstrating the power and performance of the Chrysler Group's SRT product line. Professional test drivers will take consumers on the ride of a lifetime in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 and Dodge Viper SRT10. Thrill rides will be available each day at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
All event attendees will receive a $400 consumer rebate certificate to be used toward the purchase of an eligible Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge vehicle. As an added bonus, one lucky event attendee also has the chance to win a brand new Chrysler Crossfire Coupe.
"The 'Full Throttle Test Drive Event' is not your ordinary driving event. It is more like a celebration of all the great Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles in our product portfolio," said Michael Milad, Director - Southwest Business Center, DaimlerChrysler Corp. "The tour brings all three of the Chrysler Group brands together for the public to experience in an experiential way through thrilling test drive courses."
The weekend event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and is free of charge. Food and drinks will be available.
