Detroit Grand Prix

Roger Penske for Mayor!

Roger Penske is preparing a presentation for Mayor Kilpatrick and the City Council that will lay out Penske’s plan for bringing open wheeled IRL racing back to Belle Isle.
Penske has already conducted a tour of the old raceway on Belle Isle for some IRL members. Penske is very devoted to bringing business and a bright future to Detroit.

Penske was on the Superbowl board and is heavily involved, if not in charge, of a riverfront development that will bring condos and storefronts to the Detroit River front.

The addition of this yearly race, The Detroit Grand Prix, would be outstanding. Not only would there be a valuable use of Belle Isle, the race would bring a lot of business and excitement to Detroit. The Motor City deserves such an event.

Thanks Mr. Penske for seeing the bright potential of Detroit!

    penske would make a great mayor, but to be honest i’d prefer to keep him out of the political arena… right now, i think it’s better for the city this way…

    I was just talking about the Grand Prix to a friend the other day. I’d love to see them come back to Detroit.

    As far as Penske for mayor, I’d have to agree that I prefer him where he is. Right now he’s a political outsider bringing all the sides together. I’d hate to see him get caught up in the bafoonary that is politics. He’s doing a great job from where he is now. Let’s not mess with it.

    There is this really great poster of the Grand Prix taken by Dale Fisher in our office. I was so sad the first time I asked when it would be held that year to hear that it had been stopped. I cannot wait to see it in person.
