Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix 2012 Free Prix Day

The first Formula 1 race I ever attended was the 1987 Detroit Grand Prix, held on the streets of Detroit around the Renaissance Center.  Twenty five years later, Detroit is once again host to open-wheel racing, though this time it’s the streets of Belle Isle, and the American IndyCar series rather than premier worldwide series, Formula 1.  Free Prix Day is a chance to see the cars and teams up close as well as watch practice for each series and GRAND-AM qualifying – all for free!

Best of Show: Subaru BRZ

Ever since seeing the FT-86 Concept preview on Gran Turismo 5, I’ve wondered if I might soon sate my desire for a new RWD sport compact.  I’ve always been impressed with Subaru’s design – specifically their ability to make me detest what should from a technical standpoint be a very appealing car – so it was with a fair amount of amazement that I found myself favoring the Subaru flavor of the spiritual successor to the legendary Hachi-Roku upon having the chance to compare the two at the Detroit Auto Show!
