Best Places to Park for the 2023 Detroit Grand Prix
Hear the roar of the engines? The intoxicating aroma of burning rubber? It’s time for the 2023 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear. And we have been hearing all the rumors and the mystery of where the Grand Prix would be after leaving Belle Isle for the longest time. But it was finalized when the City Council of Detroit approved Penske Entertainment’s plan to move the race to the streets of Detroit on November 3rd, 2021.
The core center of the race will focus around the Renaissance Center and other landmarks like the Hart Plaza, and the Spirit of Detroit statue. According to ClickonDetroit.com more than half the track will be visible for free without the need for a ticket. There will be free viewing platforms constructed along Jefferson Avenue. And entertainment, music, and food will be open to the public in Spirit Plaza, Hart Plaza, and the Riverwalk.
Detroit Grand Prix A Rough Past
The Detroit Grand Prix has a complicated and sometimes rough past going back to 1982. The race has changed venues several times and for a large amount of time, it rested on Belle Isle. But after Covid struck, changes were made. Many residents complained about its presence while many who loved racing thought it was a perfect track. So now it’s time to test out this new track and event to see if it pleases fans and racers alike.
We’re all excited to see what the race will bring. Surely it will create a new atmosphere that will increase travel, tourism, and sales in Downtown Detroit. The race takes place June 2nd – June 4th. Tickets can be purchased right here.
