2015 – Indy Car Paddock at the Detroit Belle Isle GP (May 29 to 31)

Rounds 7 and 8 of the Indy Car series were held on Belle Isle in Detroit (the motor city), Michigan. The street circuit is about 2.35 miles in length and has 14 turns. Arrived at the track on Thursday afternoon, and walked the paddock to watch the teams prepare their cars for practice on Friday. Hope you like the photos.
