This past weekend, Downtown Detroit was the place to be.
The Detroit Grand Prix came back to the streets of detroit after 32 years, being on Belle Isle, and with temperatures in the 90s, that didn’t stop die-hard Grand Prix racing fans and spectators from coming out and enjoying the 3 day event.
The Detroit Grand Prix first hit the streets of Detroit in 1982, before moving to Belle Isle in 1989, where it stayed until 2022.
But not only was the Grand Prix bringing everyone to Downtown Detroit, there was another big event taking place at the Little Caesars Arena (LCA).

The Detroit Grand Prix racetrack passed the Renaissance Center along Jefferson Avenue and right along the river, and fans who attended had areas to stand against a fence close enough to see the race cars zoom by, but at a safe distance from the track. Photos for the Grand Prix.
