All Grand Prix ticketholders will once again have access to the Fifth Third Bank Paddock throughout the weekend.

In addition to being part of the action in the open paddock on Belle Isle, all Grand Prix ticketholders will once again have access to the historic James Scott Memorial Fountain. Belle Isle’s most famous landmark turns 97 years old in 2022 and, thanks to a continued partnership with DTE Energy, the Grand Prix will continue its tradition of getting the fountain flowing to begin race weekend and ensure that it operates throughout the summer for all park visitors to enjoy. Fans can also experience the excitement and celebration at the Fountain following each race at the Autotrader Winner’s Circle – one of the most unique victory podium locations in motorsports. New for 2022, the Fountain Fan Area will feature an Entertainment Stage with music all weekend long, premium food and beverage options, tailgating games and more, located next to Scott Fountain.

Guests are welcome to bring lawn chairs for open seating areas on Belle Isle.
All fans that purchase 2022 Grand Prix tickets before February 28 will take advantage of reduced pricing across all viewing options, along with the best seat locations. Also new for 2022, all reserved seat locations can be purchased as a reduced-price two-day ticket with specific savings dependent on the seat location.
