Rolex Series to Race in Detroit Grand Prix

Oct 19, 2011

GRAND-AM will be racing into the Motor City in 2012, with the announcement of the return of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

GRAND-AM’s Rolex Sports Car Series will partner with Penske Motorsports and the IZOD IndyCar Series in the June 1-3 weekend on the picturesque 14-turn, 2.1-mile circuit located on Belle Isle, a city park on an island in the Detroit River adjacent to downtown, according to a press release.

The Chevrolet Detroit Sports Car Challenge featuring the Rolex Series will be held on Saturday, June 2.

“This is another memorable day for GRAND-AM,” said Tom Bledsoe, president of the sanctioning body. “We have already announced that we’ll be racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2012, and this is another great addition to our schedule as we continue to move forward as North America’s leading sports car sanctioning body.”
