The Detroit Grand Prix has been a staple of the Detroit Automotive Culture since the early eighties, with origins dating back to to when it was a Formula One World Championship event held on the Detroit street circuit encompassing the Renaissance Center.
Frank Torre, in collaboration with Roger Penske, owner of Team Penske and the Penske Automotive Group (PAG), maintains a major role in the annual Detroit Grand Prix races. The professional auto racing event is held on Detroit’s Belle Isle and brings together public and private communities and international attendance.
In 2015 over 100,000 fans attend the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix which was held at the Belle Isle Park.
