Helio Castroneves, professional race car driver, made a stop in Detroit to visit the North American International Auto Show. The driver is promoting the upcoming Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix but also visited the displays of the new vehicles rolling out in 2016. 

“Every year you always see new products especially with the technology the way it is, it’s always improving. It’s cool to see the evolution of where it’s going. They’re talking about autonomous driving so hopefully one day they get that but not in racing otherwise I lose my job,” says Castroneves.

Three-time Grand Prix winner and three-time Indy 500 winner, Helio is probably not at risk of losing his job. He is looking forward to getting a fourth win this year in Detroit. 

"My car should be next year on this display here so looking forward to representing team Penske for another season,” he adds. 

Helio is also well-known for ABC's Dancing With The Stars and showed off a few moves.
