Rounds 7 and 8. Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, June 11-13

Rounds 7 and 8. Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, June 11-13

After being cancelled last year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the double header at Detroit is back on the calendar.

Detroit was originally the venue for the F1 Detroit Grand Prix, held from 1982-1988. It was dropped from the F1 calendar after 1988, when F1's governing body FISA declared the temporary pit area sub standard and because of the drivers dislike of the event due to track disintegration, which was particularly bad that year.

It had been planned to move the F1 Grand Prix to Belle Isle in 1989 but no agreement was finalised, so F1 went to Phoenix from 1989-1991 and Detroit became a CART event, with the race held on a slightly modified version of the F1 track.

In 1992, the event finally moved to Belle Isle, where it became a fixture on the CART calendar being held up to and including 2001, with the track extended from 2.1 mi (3.4 km), to 2.36 mi (3.80 km) in 1998.

The race was revived from 2007-2008 and held as a double-header, as part of the IRL's IndyCar Series, using the original CART layout, with Turn 8 tightened. However, it was cancelled from 2009-2011, due to the downturn in Detroit's automotive industry and the city's economic problems.

The race was revived again in 2012 and since 2013, the track has reverted to the 1998-2001 CART layout, with changes to Turn 3 and 7 and The Strand.

Some Trivia:
Hélio Castroneves got his first CART win at Detroit in 2000, driving a Reynard 2Ki-Honda HR-0 V8t, for Marlboro Team Penske

Driver with the most wins, 3
Hélio Castroneves 2000, 200, 2014.
Scott Dixon 2012, 2018, 2019

The team with the most wins, 10.
Team Penske: 1991, 1994, 2000, 2001, 2014 Race 1 and 2, 2016, 2018, 2019

F1 Circuit had a tunnel didnt it? Indy Car through a tunnel would be pretty cool.

Hoping Scott McLaughlin qualifies up front and runs well...

McLaughlin was going well early in practice before he drove the right front into the tire barrier and broke the A-arms. Power did his usual trick of turning the fastest lap of the session in the last minute or so. Nice to see Bourdais near the top of the time sheet. Not sure these screen shots will be readable even though they look fine on my screen.

The images were readable just fine. Hoping there isnt too much carnage in the race.

Qualifying result:


Pato O'Ward takes pole and though the result is unofficial, I've rarely seen the result for qualifying changed. Hope I haven't jinxed it.

The lap time for Pole in Race 1, 01:15.5776 with a speed of 111.938 Mph (180.146 m/h), is down on the previous Race 1, 1:14.1989, 114.018 Mph (183.494 km/h).

Good to see Ro Gro up there in third spot, showing consistency on the road and street courses.

The track is ridiculously bumpy. Cant imagine how awful it must feel in a single seater. Still, not my problem.

I'm at the track, have grandstand seats at a race for the first time ever. Limited viewing thanks to crowd restrictions that were lifted a week or two too late. No access to turn 3-6. Still great to be at a race!

Great bit of driving by Newgarden, keeping his car under control as it turned into a tricycle and then bring it back to pitroad.
