The on-track lineup for the 2023 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear will provide some intense and competitive racing on the new street circuit. The stars and high-powered cars of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES return to compete in the Chevrolet INDYCAR Grand Prix while the top young racers of the new-look INDY NXT by Firestone will race on both Saturday and Sunday in Detroit.
The IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge will make its first-ever appearance in Detroit with the Grand Sport (GS) class cars joining the Downtown street party. In 2022, the Pilot Challenge GS class featured eight manufacturers, including Chevrolet, Ford, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche and Toyota. The GS class features SRO GT4 cars with engines producing up to 450 horsepower.
The powerful muscle cars of the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli will also return to the Motor City next summer, harkening back to the “Pony Wars” and the classic Trans Am battles in the 1980s and 90s, when the Grand Prix last raced on the Downtown Detroit streets.
