DETROIT – Accelerating its promotional efforts while preparing for the “fastest weekend of the summer,” the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix (CDBIGP) recently unveiled its revamped official Internet website, www.DetroitGP.com. The enhanced site incorporates social media, video content, the latest racing news and the rich history of the Grand Prix while creating excitement for the June 1-3 event on Belle Isle.
The new DetroitGP.com is very interactive and easy to use. From the moment fans log on to the site, the excitement surrounding the Grand Prix builds as a countdown clock lets users know how much time is left until the engines roar to life at the Raceway at Belle Isle Park road course. The most recent news from the four racing series competing at the CDBIGP – the IZOD IndyCar Series, the GRAND-AM Rolex Series, the Pirelli World Challenge Championship Series and the Firestone Indy Lights are also featured on the home page along with an overview of the weekend race schedule.
The Grand Prix’s social media platforms also take center stage at the online home of the event. With an increased focus on its Twitter, Facebook and YouTube portals, the Grand Prix incorporates all of its social media energy on its new home page to create a gathering place for fans.
It’s been 30 years since Detroit hosted its first Grand Prix event and the new DetroitGP.com pays homage to this heritage with complete race recaps and photos from the previous events on the streets of Detroit and Belle Isle in its History section. There is also an area that focuses on Belle Isle itself and its history and landmarks.
Fans can also purchase tickets online through DetroitGP.com and those interested in volunteering for the event can sign up through the site as well. A special area of the site is dedicated to all of the event partners that help sponsor the Grand Prix.
A complete breakdown of all the entertainment acts performing during race weekend, a list of things to do in and around Detroit and detailed transportation information on the best way to and from the Grand Prix will also be featured at DetroitGP.com. In a special section called “Detroit Pride” the new site will feature positive stories and coverage of the Motor City.
