Chevrolet Announces Multi-Year Extension to Continue as Title Sponsor of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix
Executives with General MotorsToday Chevrolet and the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix today announced an multi-year extension for Chevrolet to continue as the title sponsor of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, one of the most popular annual summertime events in Michigan.
After returning to Verizon IndyCar Series competition as an engine manufacturer in 2012, Chevrolet raced the extra mile, becoming title sponsor of its hometown event as the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix made its return to the Motor City for the first time in four years. With capacity crowds and exciting racing on the physical street circuit, the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix has continued to grow over the last two years. The event is poised for its best weekend yet next week as the Raceway at Belle Isle Park will host seven races and three days of non-stop entertainment, May 30-June 1.
"We are very excited to continue our partnership with General Motors and Chevrolet to build on the momentum we've established with this wonderful event," said Bud Denker, Chairman of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. "Without the support of Chevrolet, we would not have been able to bring world-class auto racing back to the Motor City and with a multi-year extension of this partnership we know the future certainly looks bright on Belle Isle for the Grand Prix."
