As the event once again returned to Detroit's scenic Belle Isle Raceway, the Official Grand Prix art print from Camilo Pardo highlights the beautiful Scott Fountain which dozens of Indy Cars circled as they sped through the 2.1 mile track this past June. A 982-acre island in the Detroit River, Belle Isle was home to the Detroit Grand Prix from 1992-2001, utilizing a temporary street circuit that was constructed specifically for the CART races. In 2007, it once again hosted world-class racing with both the open-wheel cars of the IndyCar Series and the sports cars of the American Le Mans Series competing at the event, both of which are highlighted in this RUN.
Belle Isle also includes a half-mile swimming beach, the only one in the city, and a nature center. The aquarium opened in 1904, making it the oldest public aquarium in the United States. The conservatory and the 1908 Belle Isle Casino were constructed by Detroit architect Albert Kahn, well-known for developing open-floor plan concrete factories. Consistently voted Metro Detroit's best park, Belle Isle also features dozens of picturesque views of Detroit's skyline, also embodied here with Camilo's latest RUN.
