(Motorsport-Total.com) – In the 2022 IndyCar season (View – stream all races live with Sky Ticket!) After the Indy 500, things will continue one by one. Because only a week into the season’s climax, the street race will take place in Detroit next weekend. It’s the third city race of the season.

30 years ago, Belle Isle was first driven, and now for the last time
The circuit, located scenicly on Belle Isle on the Detroit River, was first used in the 1992 CART season. Ten years later, he temporarily disappeared from the calendar. In 2007, she led the Indy Racing League (IRL) once on Peel Island. Detroit was also on the calendar in 2008, the year of reunification in single-seat racing in the United States. Then there was another break for several years.
Detroit returned to the IndyCar calendar in 2012 and has been a part of it ever since (except for cancellation in Corona 2020). However, this weekend, Belle Isle will be driven for the last time. Because in 2023 there will be a return to downtown Detroit. Formula 1 was a guest there from 1982 to 1988 and then the CART series on the same circuit from 1989 to 1991. A different track layout than in the ’80s and ’90s is planned for a comeback in 2023.
But let’s go back to the present. Indy 500 winner Marcus Ericsson will lead the 2022 IndyCar standings ahead of this weekend’s Detroit Grand Prix. The double points awarded in the Indy 500 play a big role in the fact that the Swede took first place. There won’t be another double-point race weekend in 2022 — and there won’t be another in Detroit, because for the first time since 2012 it’s no longer a double-header, but a singles race.
