Detroit Grand Prix to allow limited attendance in return
Detroit – The Detroit Grand Prix announced Tuesday that the three-day event, June 11-13, which includes IndyCar races for the final two days, has limited daily entries.
Bud Denker, chairman of the Detroit Grand Prix, expects between 6,000 and 9,000 fans to see the action in Belle Isle Park every day.
The IndyCar double header on Belle Isle was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s event features clearances between groups of fans in reserved seating, limited viewing areas for general admission, and reduced capacity in hospitality areas. General admission tickets can be purchased.

All fans must wear face covers at the Grand Prix, except when they are actively eating or drinking.
“We look forward to bringing world-class racing back to Motor City next month,” Denker said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming racing fans to Belle Isle Park in a safe and healthy way for three days of excitement.
“After the 2020 Grand Prix was canceled due to the pandemic, some fans decided to transfer their tickets from last year’s event to the 2021 Grand Prix. As the Grand Prix honors these commitments from its loyal fans, this week’s event is aimed at those ticket buyers to review their options for the 2021 Grand Prix.
“Ticket buyers who have opted for a refund due to the cancellation in 2020, as well as fans who have registered for a pre-sale period in 2021, will also have the opportunity to buy tickets for this year’s race in the coming days. The remaining tickets available for June 12-13 will go on sale on May 20th. “
Comerica Bank will again sponsor Free Prix Day on June 11th with a range of free tickets available on request from May 17th.
