You can have a chance to meet racecar drivers, sit track-side and win great prizes at our EXCLUSIVE Detroit Grand Prix Tweetup!

WXYZ has worked closely with the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix  and Specs Howard School of Media Arts to put together an exclusive and very limited opportunity for our social media fans.

Our special behind-the-scenes TWEETUP that will take place during the Grand Prix’s “Free Prix Day,” on Friday, 6/3/2016, at 12 p.m., on Belle Isle.

 WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

  • A chance to meet an IndyCar driver, ask questions & get autographs
  • Sit track-side to watch IndyCar practice & Super Truck racing
  • The opportunity to see how crews keep the cars running
  • A behind-the-scenes look at the setup on Belle Isle
  • Lots of exclusive chances to take amazing photos
  • You’ll be the first of your friends to post pics from the Detroit Grand Prix
  • An afternoon where you might make a few new friends

 WHAT WE ASK YOU TO DO:

  • Have fun!
  • Share your experience with your friends on Twitter and Facebook
  • Use our Twitter hashtags #detroitgp and #TheInsideTrack (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 receive 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 really will be a special day. Along with the Grand Prix organizers, we’ve worked with Specs Howard to make this happen. If we haven’t already stressed it: This will be fun!
