(DETROIT, MI) – The City of Windsor and the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix have announced their renewed partnership for 2016, following a decision by City Council to gift the event with a $50,000 donation.
For the seventh year, the Grand Prix and Windsor will team up to provide a way for Canadian fans to visit Belle Isle Park through Transit Windsor and experience the excitement of the 2016 Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, from June 3 through 5.
This year’s partnership will give fans the opportunity to purchase Grand Prix tickets online, including round-trip transportation to Belle Isle. Fans have the option to purchase general admission tickets or a reserved grandstand seat in Grandstand 1, overlooking pit lane and the start/finish line area at the Grand Prix.
Event attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy the numerous activities in the Meijer Fan Zone, including local and national acts on the MotorCity Casino Hotel Entertainment Stage, food and drinks in the Coors Light Beer Garden and Food Court, artists creating crafts in the Trendy Crafts Craft Show, extreme sports demonstrations and more.
Single-day tickets will start at $55 for a general admission ticket or $95 for a reserved grandstand ticket. Prices include HST.
Canadian fans who already have their Grand Prix tickets can also purchase the round-trip transportation from the International Transit Terminal for $12 per person.
As part of the partnership, Windsor will continue as the sponsor of the International Media Center, located at the historic Belle Isle Casino, on race weekend. New in 2016, Windsor will also be the sponsor of Grandstand 2 at the Grand Prix, located between Turns 1 and 2 with a view of the start/finish line.
