Whether you're metro Detroit's biggest IndyCar fan or you just think it would be neat to learn more about racing, we think we have a fun afternoon for you!


WXYZ has worked closely with the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix Presented by Lear to put together an exclusive and very limited opportunity for our social media fans.

We'd like to invite you to a special behind-the-scenes TWEETUP that will take place during Comerica Bank "Free Prix Day" at the Detroit Grand Prix on Friday, June 1, at 1 p.m. on Belle Isle.

You will need a special ticket (we only have a few) to participate.


  • A chance to meet a racer and ask questions
  • The opportunity to see how crews keep the cars running
  • A behind-the-scenes look at the setup on Belle Isle
  • Check out the Paddock area where all of the IndyCars are set up
  • Lots of exclusive chanes to take amazing photos
  • You'll be the first of your friends to post pics from the Detroit rand Prix
  • The chance to watch practice & qualifying rounds on the track
  • An afternoon where you might make a few new friends


  • Have fun!
  • Share you experience with your friends on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook
  • Use the hashtag #DetroitGP and tag us @wxyzdetroit and @detroitgp (We'll talk about all of that when we see you on Belle Isle!)

If you've reserved a ticket, you can expect us to provide details on when and where to meet the group. You'll receieve an email a few days before the Tweetup. While the event is free, please be aware that you will need to pay for parking and then take a free shuttle bus onto the island.

This will be a very special day. If we haven't already stressed it: This will be fun!
