DETROIT (WWJ) -- Restart your engines, because race weekend is here again!

After becoming one of many events to be cancelled last year due to COVID-19, the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix returns to Belle Isle on Friday, June 11 and runs through Sunday, June 13.

Free Prix Day, which traditionally kicks off the weekend of events, is now sold out. Those attending can expect to see the return of some old favorites, such as The Indy Lights series. Additionally, Corvettes will be racing on Friday for the first time since 2008.

For those attending later in the weekend, Race 1 is set for Saturday, June 12, at 2 p.m., and Race 2 will take place on Sunday, June 13, at 12 p.m.

In accordance with Michigan’s current COVID protocols, some grandstand seating has been condensed or eliminated due to attendance limitations.

Organizers are planning for around 30% to 50% capacity during the event compared to previous years. Read about the other Grand Prix safety protocols that will be in place here.

Those watching from home can catch the Detroit Grand Prix on NBC, which will air the races on both Saturday and Sunday.
