This past weekend Belle Isle was booming, and it was not from the multiple weddings or any of the many bbq's going on. It was from the Red Bull Global Rallycross event that went on from Friday through Sunday. It was the first time the GRC stopped in Detroit and it was a little rocky for the circuit. Despite limited promotion and virtually a baron infield, the spectators that did attend seemed to still enjoy it. The racing itself is fast paced with short 4 lap heats that go through a huge jump, dirt section, and a lane called "The Joker" which is a short cut every driver must take once during a race.
