Detroit Grand Prix Planning New Enhancements

by | Nov 24, 2018 | Chris Green, News, Other Auto Racing |


After the renewal of the Grand Prix of Detroit at Belle Isle this year, the event announced several new enhancements for fans.
For the first time, all fans will have free access to the paddock for IMSA, Trans-Am, and IndyCar Series competitors. In past years, an additional ticket was required. Now, fans will have the ability to get up close to the teams with a general admission ticket, as well as get up close to the Scott Fountain victory lane podium.

Another enhancement is the new position on driver’s left for the main grandstand down the front stretch. While originally located there, recent years have seen the grandstand behind pit lane with suite boxes located on driver’s left.

Additionally, two grandstands will provide fans with viewing on both the inside and outside of Turn 3. The grandstand on driver’s left (outside) will feature value-priced reserved seating, while the inside grandstand will be general admission. A new general admission grandstand will also pop up inside the “horseshoe” along the backstretch by Turn 7.

Also, the grandstand in Turn 5 will no longer be available given the new Oudolf Garden coming to Belle Isle. The new general admission grandstand in turn 7 will be accessible via a new walkover bridge in the horseshoe area in turn 8.
