“The Detroit Grand Prix has built a great tradition in the Motor City and we are excited to add to the event's legacy next year and beyond. The Grand Prix will return to Belle Isle on June 3-5, 2022.
While we have the option of extending the current agreement with the State of Michigan to host the Grand Prix on Belle Isle through 2024, we are exploring the option of returning the event to a downtown street circuit beginning in 2023. The Grand Prix began as a downtown event, hosted on the streets of Detroit from 1982-1991, before making the transition to Belle Isle.
An annual summertime racing festival on the streets of Detroit would represent a connection to the rich heritage of the Grand Prix, the opportunity to engage with broad audiences and provide an even greater boost to the local economy while adding to the energy and momentum that is building downtown and along our beautiful waterfront.
As plans continue to develop, we look forward to providing an update on the exciting future of the Detroit Grand Prix.”
