The excitement of world-class auto racing will return to the Motor City next summer with the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, June 3-5, 2016.
Over $7.5 million in improvements have been made to Belle Isle Park since the Grand Prix made its return to Detroit in 2007 and 2008.
On the first weekend in June, the Automotive Capital of the World will once again bristle with excitement as the cars of the Verizon IndyCar Series, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and high-flying trucks of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks presented by Traxxas will battle wheel-to-wheel on the temporary street circuit constructed on Belle Isle, the beautiful 982-acre island located on the Detroit River between Windsor, Ontario, Canada and Detroit, Michigan.

" The Final Season- Fathers, Sons and One Last Season in a Classic American Ballpark" author Tom Stanton describes Tiger Stadium best:
"Our ballpark feels like Detroit. It carries no airs. It's blue collar and industrial. When you enter through the gates, you come in beneath corrugated doors that have been rolled up on tracks, like at a warehouse delivery dock. You're greeted by cement and steel, strong, riveted girders that thrust upward and serve a purpose, holding the deck above in place. There are no architectural flourishes, no cornices, no fancy tile work, no aesthetic touches. This stadium shows its secrets - pipes, wires, girders and all. It's plain and simple, no scent of pretentiousness. It doesn't yearn to be something it is not."
