Race fans, it’s that time again. Belle Isle is coming alive again with the Detroit Grand Prix race. Now with outdoor mask restrictions ending June 1, the Grand Prix can host a fuller house allowing thousands more than would have been allowed during restricted crowd compacity.

“Our top priority has always been to provide a safe and fun experience on Belle Isle for our fans,” Michael Montri President of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix said. “As we followed the protocols that were in place throughout our planning, and with the build out for the Grand Prix entering its final stages, many of the fan activities and attractions that were featured at our event in the past — like live music — will not be included in 2021. We have heard from many of our fans that are looking forward to being back on Belle Isle to enjoy a world-class event and we are so excited to provide that opportunity to a few thousand more fans each day at the Grand Prix.”

The event is going on June 11-13 on Belle Isle. They are still following Michigan health and safety guidelines and total attendance for this year will be reduced as their goal is a safe event for all. Added attractions this year are Corvette racing and Indy Lights. There were free tickets available for Comerica Bank Free Prix Day which is Friday June 11, and that was sold out. Now that new capacity is being added due to restrictions ending there will be more of the free tickets and you can reserve them here.
