Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix TicketsThe Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix brings exciting racing on a street course. This event dates back to 2007. In 2013, the Grand Prix started to host two big races over three days. Since then, it's been known as the Dual in Detroit. The city has a long-standing love affair with all things automotive, and that includes racing. Prior to the IndyCar event, other series also raced through the city. In the 1980s, Formula One drivers took to the city's streets in the downtown area. Later, a CART series did the same. The move to Belle Isle added a new dimension to the event as the island is far more scenic and isolated than Detroit's downtown core. Organizers for the re-imagined 2007 event were inspired by Detroit's successful Super Bowl hosting gig in 2006. Today, it's tough for Detroiters to imagine their city without the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix. Get your tickets to this motorsports event at StubHub.
