Nov 20, 2012
Tickets are now available for the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix at www.DetroitGP.com, by calling the ticket hotline at 866-464-7749 or at the Grand Prix box office in the GM Renaissance Center.
The May 31-June 2 event features the first-ever IZOD IndyCar Series doubleheader. One race will be contested each on Saturday and Sunday, and both will be televised by ABC.
Additionally, Quicken Loans has been announced as a presenting sponsor of the event.
Race officials announced that Free Prix Day will return in 2013 as everyone will be admitted to the Raceway at Belle Isle Park venue free of charge on May 31. Single-day tickets can be purchased for as little as $25 for a general admission seat and two-day general admission tickets are available for $45. Children 12 and under are admitted free to GA seating with a ticket-holding adult.
A three-day Super Ticket plan, two-day reserved grandstand tickets and premium seating options are also available. Passes to the Fifth Third Bank paddock, the “locker room” of motorsports that includes up-close access to the teams, drivers and race cars, are now also available for purchase.
The racing circuit was recently reconfigured to 2.35 miles, featuring a half-mile straight for more overtaking opportunities. Fans should ask about seats in Grandstand 4, which will overlook the new area of the track, when calling to purchase tickets.
All tickets provide access to the activities in the Meijer Family Fun Zone and the opportunity to watch national and local acts perform throughout the weekend on the MotorCity Casino Hotel entertainment stage (entertainment to be announced soon).
“With all of the great entertainment options available for fans, we believe the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix provides one of the best values in all of sports,” event chairman Bud Denker said. “Every day really provides something special. We’re proud to once again welcome everyone to Belle Isle for Free Prix Day on Friday, while Saturday really is the best value as fans will see three races – the first World Challenge race of the weekend, the GRAND-AM race and first Dual in Detroit IndyCar race – along with a great concert at night.
"Sunday continues to be terrific day with the second World Challenge race and the final Dual in Detroit IndyCar race along with another concert and family fun throughout the day.”
