Reflections on the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix

The 2007 Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix was a great experience for metropolitan Detroit, for Michigan, and for the U.S. as a whole!  Of all the Grand Prix events we’ve had here, whether in the canyons of the inner city, around and about the Renaissance Center, or on the old island in the Detroit River, this Grand Prix was the best yet!

Virtually everything was done well.  My biggest criticisms are these:

1.  When my batteries ran out on my digital camera, I had trouble finding anyone who had an idea of where to buy more.  Now, I did find some, and they were reasonably priced, but it just took me a while.

2.  When I went to take the shuttle back to Foxtown to get my car, the line was pretty long.  The parking fee was reasonable, the shuttle fee was reasonable, and the ride was comfortable.  I just had to wait about 45 minutes to get voted off the island.

I make these statements not to complain.  These are my biggest criticisms of an extremely well-run and well-planned event.  As I said, virtually everything was well done!  Thanks to Roger Penske, and the thousands who followed his lead.  Congratulations on a job well done!  For those who didn’t make it this year, we hope to see you in September 2008.

By the way, CorvetteBlog was the only blog dedicated to "all things Corvette" to be there to cover this important event.  Thanks for reading!
