Drivers to race on streets of Downtown Detroit
Tickets are officially on sale for the 2023 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear — the first Grand Prix in decades to actually take place on the streets of Detroit.
Since 1991, the annual Detroit Grand Prix has been held on Belle Isle, just east of the heart of downtown. But in 2021, the Penske Corporation proposed moving the race back to the streets of Downtown Detroit — and the city council approved their proposal in November of that year.
This year, Grand Prix drivers will race along a nine-turn, 1.7-mile street circuit downtown on Jefferson Avenue and a few other roads. The route will take drivers past a number of major landmarks, like the Renaissance Center, Hart Plaza and Spirit of Detroit statue.
