Race Fans will have two weekend options next summer to experience the Detroit Grand Prix as Belle Isle Park will host world-class races during the first two weekends in June of 2021.

It will mark the first time in the history of the Detroit Grand Prix that the event will be hosted over the course of two weekends creating more opportunities for the event and its partners, as well as more options for fans.

The revised format for 2021 will also have a positive effect on Belle Isle Park. The open schedule provides the flexibility t

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will return to compete at Belle Isle, racing Friday to Saturday, June 4th and 5th.  The following weekend, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES will host its annual doubleheader race weekend on Belle Isle with the Dual in Detroit taking place Saturday and Sunday, June 12th and 13th.

“It was unfortunate that we were not able to host the Detroit Grand Prix in 2020 due to COVID-19, but we are so excited to welcome fans back to Belle Isle in 2021 with not one, but two great weekends of racing and family entertainment,” said Grand Prix Chairman Bud Denker. “The first weekend in June will be a sports car celebration with the exotic cars of IMSA. We will continue the tradition of the Dual in Detroit INDYCAR doubleheader the following weekend as we showcase Belle Isle, along with Detroit and Windsor, to a national audience through back-to-back days of network television coverage. While the schedule will expand for next year’s Grand Prix, it’s important to note that residents who visit Belle Isle Park frequently will have the same access as they have in the past and the event preparation time spent on Belle Isle will remain the same.”

Tickets for the unique two-weekend festival – the 31st Grand Prix event hosted in Detroit – are expected to go on sale in early 2021.
