DETROIT (WWJ) – On June 1-3, racecars will return to the Motor City for the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. Cars from the IZOD IndyCar Series, the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, and the Pirelli World Challenge Series will be competing at the event.

There will be no public parking on Belle Isle for the weekend event.  Instead, attendees can park in one of several lots in downtown Detroit.  The West Jefferson Lots and Cobo Hall Roof parking deck will be available throughout the entire weekend.  The street level parking lots east of the Renaissance Center, the Renaissance Center Parking Decks, and the Joe Louis Arena Parking Deck will be available on Saturday and Sunday.

Each of the parking lots designated for the Grand Prix will be open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m.  Parking at the West Jefferson lots will cost $5, while parking at all other lots will be $10.

There will be shuttle buses running from the parking lots to the race circuit during the weekend event.  The shuttles will be available from 7:30 a.m. until 9 p.m.  Round-trip shuttle wristbands cost $10 per day for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.

Bud Denker, the Event Chairman for the Grand Prix, said that there will be a safe and reliable plan in place and ready to welcome an expected crowd of over 100,000 people.

“It’s very important that all fans coming to Belle Isle race weekend understand that there is no public parking available on the island for race attendees,” said Denker.
