Thanks again to our friends at the Microsoft Automotive team. I had the privilege to join them for this past weekends Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.
I have never attended an IRL, Le Mans Series or an SCCA SPEED World event so I got to experience all three at one location.
And I have to say it was a great event! Being a guest of Microsoft meant that I got to experience the same amenities as they do. This included their trackside chalet to watch the races as well as paddock access to view the cars, drivers and crews up close and personal.
It was great to see the likes of Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, and Danica Patrick hit the track… or actually road since this is a road course vs. the standard oval.
The event was the brainchild of Roger Penske with all net proceeds from the event going to the funding of the preservation of Belle Isle.
It was a great event and I want to thank our friends at the Microsoft Automotive team for being excellent hosts!
Below is me with one of the race cars…. Does it come in Black????
