Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix in Detroit

Top-notch racing comes to the D, May 31-June 2, 2013, for this must-see family event.

Get the kiddos ready for a weekend of racing fun because the Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix is back in Detroit for the second consecutive year!

The Belle Isle Grand Prix features cars of the IZOD IndyCar Series, the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series and Pirelli World Challenge Championship Series. It boasts the first IZOD IndyCar Series doubleheader race weekend.

Car enthusiasts are in for a treat because this weekend features three intense races on the updated 2.35-mile Belle Isle street circuit. Keep your sights on the track all weekend, though, to watch all of the practice rounds, qualifying round and races!

Catch a concert by Dwele, Bret Michaels or Plain White T's – or get your favorite racer's autograph at one of the autograph sessions.

Want to get a close up of the teams and their drivers while they tinker around on their cars throughout the weekend? Purchase a Fifth Third Bank Paddock Pass, "the locker room of racing," to see your favorite driver up close.

Tickets range from $25 for general admission to $155 dollars for an adult 3-Day Super Ticket and $110 for a children's 3-Day Super Ticket. General admission ticket pricing for children 12 and under is free with a paid adult ticket.

Since attendee vehicles cannot be parked on Belle Isle for the Grand Prix, there are two easy options to get to the race: A round-trip shuttle will pick up guests continuously from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. or until all guests are accommodated. A round-trip shuttle wristband is $10 per day for adults and $5 per day for children ages 12 and under; the fees for parking ranges from $5-$10. Or take the Detroit Grand Prix Ferry service, which is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under for a round-trip ticket. The ferry service runs 6:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.

The Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix takes place 8 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
