Greetings from Beautiful Detroit (Belle Isle!)
After a three year hiatus I decided to sign up for another DGP. It took a while to contemplate my options but I pulled the trigger on the last day registration was open and just a week before the race.
I’ll write in greater detail about what I liked and disliked about the event, there were plenty of both… but for now I’d like to share some of my favorite pictures from the IMSA pre-race pit and grid walk… To me this was the highlight of my participation.
Guess who’s going to watch the next Jason Bourne movie? This guy!
Gorgeous view of the fountain on Belle Isle, and an even more gorgeous station assignment, working Turn 1!
More to come… soon!
With a few days left to go until the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, Andy Blackmore Designed has released another amazing spotter guide for the IMSA events of the weekend.
Download your copy from: www.facebook.com/SpotterGuides/ or pick up a printed version at the gates during the event, which is what I typically try to do. As a huge fan of Andy I have a whole collection of his spotter guides from various events that I’ve volunteered.
Be sure to pick up an official IndyCar spotter guide too… and as the TransAm fields are growing HUGE! I hope they come up with a spotter guide also… only recently I’ve noticed Pirelli World Challenge has started offering spotter guides for their events, I was lucky to pick one up at Lime Rock (and I’m talking about an actual spotter guide and not the magazine program that they printed at the beginning of the season and distribute throughout the year).
See you in Detroit… a lovely city!
