All ticketholders will be able to visit the Fifth VThird Bank Paddock without having to purchase a separate paddock pass. In the paddock – known as the “locker room of motorsports” – fans can get up close to their favorite teams and drivers all weekend long on Belle Isle. Along with the access to the paddock, everyone will be able to visit the historic James Scott Memorial Fountain where fans can enjoy the beauty of the iconic 93-year-old fountain and join in the excitement and celebration after every race at the Autotrader Winner’s Circle throughout Grand Prix weekend.
Fans will also have more options to view the exciting on-track action at the 2019 Grand Prix with new locations for grandstands and more viewing areas throughout the venue. The Cars.com Grandstand 1 will now be located on the driver’s left side of the track, across from Blue Cross Blue Shield pit lane. This change will allow fans a better view of all of the action coming down the front stretch at the start/finish line, heading into Turn 1 and on pit lane. Turn 3 will now have double the seating available for fans in one of the most exciting turns on the track. Grandstand 3 on the driver’s left side of the track will offer value-priced Reserved Grandstand seating while the new Grandstand 4 located inside the venue on driver’s right side of the circuit will be a General Admission grandstand. With the new Oudolf Garden coming to Belle Isle, there will no longer be a grandstand positioned in Turn 5.
