City of Windsor and Grand Prix Renew Partnership
For the ninth consecutive year, the international partnership between the City of Windsor and the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear will be renewed in 2018 as the Grand Prix will showcase the unique “two-nation destination” on beautiful Belle Isle, June 1-3.
With Belle Isle Park located on the Detroit River between Windsor, Ontario, Canada and Detroit, fans on both sides of the border will once again enjoy world-class racing, entertainment and family fun at the Grand Prix.
Verizon IndyCar Series driver Simon Pagenaud of Team Penske joined Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens and Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear Chairman Bud Denker in announcing the details of the partnership today at a press conference in Festival Plaza along the Windsor Riverfront.
“We’re proud to host the Grand Prix at such a unique venue on Belle Isle, located between the shores of Canada and the United States on the Detroit River, and we’re excited welcome fans from both sides of the border to our weekend celebration June 1-3,” said Bud Denker, Chairman of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear. “We appreciate the continued partnership with the City of Windsor and we’re pleased to once again provide a special ticket offer to our Canadian fans that includes fast, safe and reliable transportation to Belle Isle through Transit Windsor.”
“The City of Windsor values our partnership with the Grand Prix and I encourage race fans on this side of the border to take advantage of this special ticket package offer,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “The Grand Prix is the perfect way to highlight this ‘two-nation destination’ and start the summer season by watching exciting races and exceptional entertainment on beautiful Belle Isle.”
