Events @ The DOTC:

To help repopulate the car culture, and introduce high school students to both the automotive and skill trade world, DRIVE One is proud to present special events throughout the calendar and school year(s).

R.A.C.E. Exhibitions:

Sometimes, the best way for a student to understand what they're learning in the classroom is to get outside of it. Since 2013. DRIVE One has prided itself on taking our students beyond the classroom, and helping them showcase their work nationally. Our students call them "Vacations", but we refer to them as "Racing, Automotive, and Competitive Events" or R.A.C.E. Exhibitions.

R.A.C.E. Exhibitions aren't single-day Field Trips. They're one-of-a-kind experiences where students have the opportunity to:

  • Go Behind-The-Scenes and Network with Different Employers and Workplaces

  • Take Hand-Built Projects To State and National Competitions 

  • Compete Against Other Schools and Even Professional Race Teams

  • Tour Two-and-Four-Year Trade Schools Throughout The Midwest.


Some Examples of R.A.C.E. Exhibitions Include:

Cars + Coffee:

The second Saturday of the month, DRIVE One “Cars and Coffee" opens-the-door to a plethora of cool cars and vehicles.

From 8-11am, both young and old alike from across Metro Detroit bring their classic vehicle for free coffee and donuts, and a chance to network with each other and the DRIVE One team.
