Located in the Detroit River, Belle Isle has hosted a multitude of auto races since first opening in 1992. Currently hosting the Verizon IndyCar Series and IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship among others, the 2.35 mile, 13-turn circuit is located on a picturesque island minutes from downtown Detroit.
iRacing is creating a digital replica of the track which will highlight the beautiful landscape as well as several signature features, most notably the fountain near turns 9 and 10, the Detroit skyline and views into Canada. The racing surface is very unique and features smooth concrete, worn/polished concrete, new and old asphalt. The multiple surface types will challenge drivers as they discover where they can push hard and where they will need to be cautious.
