IndyCar: Work progresses on new Detroit GP infrastructure

Work continues on the infrastructure needed to move the Detroit Grand Prix to its new downtown location next year.

Organizers have published new images online showing the laying of concrete slabs in the pit/paddock area, which is located in a car park near the GM Renaissance Center which will be the centerpiece of the circuit.

The new-for-2023 layout will feature 10 corners, predominantly 90 degrees, and total a very short 1.7mi.

Next year’s Detroit Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on June 2-4.
