DETROIT (WWJ) - Tickets for the 2012 Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix will go on sale to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2011 and prices will remain the same as they were four years ago for the last Grand Prix event in Detroit.
World-class auto racing will return to the Motor City the weekend of June 1-3, 2012 as the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix will roar through the streets of Belle Isle Park for the first time since 2008.
The action-packed weekend will feature four premiere racing series competing on the 2.1-mile road course at Belle Isle. The cars of the IZOD IndyCar Series, the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series, the Pirelli World Challenge Championship Series and the Firestone Indy Lights Series will all race at the Grand Prix to wave the green flag on summertime in Detroit.
Several ticket plan options will be available for purchase including, single-day, two-day or three-day “super” reserved grandstand ticket packages. Hospitality plans, garage/paddock passes, general admission tickets and wheelchair accessible seating for the Grand Prix may also be purchased starting next Tuesday.
Team Penske IndyCar drivers Helio Castroneves – the three-time Indy 500 champion, 2000 and 2001 Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix winner and former Dancing with the Stars champ – and Will Power – series runner-up and Road Course champion in both 2010 and 2011 – will visit Detroit to celebrate tickets going on sale.
Castroneves and Power will actually be on site at the Grand Prix office in downtown Detroit the morning of Nov. 22 to field calls from ticket buyers and help sell tickets to the event.
Tickets for the three-day event can be purchased by calling 1-866-464-7749, by visiting the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix office (located in suite 2311, above the Wintergarden in the GM Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit) or online at www.detroitgp.com beginning Nov. 22.
