Start your engines, Detroit! The Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix is returning to the Motor City this weekend, bringing with it three full days of world-class auto racing and so much more. For several weeks, visitors of Belle Isle have experienced the 2.3 mile raceway’s magnificent construction, which has enveloped the majority of the island. The 25 mph signs posted along the roadways suddenly seem less appropriate. Detroit is getting ready to race!
This year’s event is sure to bring fans from near and far, featuring a Verizon IndyCar Series doubleheader, the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit presented by Quicken Loans. Throughout the weekend Belle Isle will also be hosting the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the Pirelli World Challenge Series, as well as the trucks of the SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road, presented by TRAXXAS. Fans can look forward to seven races happening over the course of the event, and with many of the vehicles going over 200 mph, spectators can expect big thrills and bigger whiplash as they watch these races.
The Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix also has exciting fan activities, including extreme sports demonstrations, free monster truck rides, an appearance by Detroit sports stars, autograph sessions with the drivers, and so much more.
Additionally, Arie Luyendyk Jr., professional driver and finalist from “The Bachelorette,” will be returning to the event this year, taking the Quicken Loans truck for a spin and performing spectacular ramp jumps throughout the weekend.
