Race officials have confirmed that the Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle May 29th - 31st has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. An announcement regarding ticket refunds will be forthcoming. Ticket holders may also call the ticket hotline at 866-464-PRIX.
Organizer's had been trying to work on an alternate date but due to scheduling issues the event had to be scrapped for 2020.
“The Grand Prix is a very important event for Belle Isle Park, the City of Detroit, the City of Windsor and all of southeast Michigan. It is certainly disappointing that it won’t take place this year, but the health and safety of everyone at the Grand Prix is always our top priority,” said Bud Denker, Chairman of the Detroit Grand Prix. “We looked at every possible scenario to reschedule the race, but all of them would have been too disruptive to the hundreds of fall events that will take place on Belle Isle. Some events, like weddings, family reunions and festivals, have been scheduled a year in advance and it would not be right to alter anyone’s plans. We look forward to the Grand Prix returning in 2021 as we continue our mission of revitalizing Belle Isle Park and providing significant support to the Belle Isle Conservancy, while helping to inject millions of dollars in economic benefit to our cities and our region.”
Next year's event is slated to go on June 4th - 6th, 2021.
