USCC: A lap of Belle Isle with Ryan Dalziel (+video)

The United SportsCar Championship (USCC) is in Detroit, this weekend, racing on the Belle Isle street circuit.

Extreme Speed Motorsports driver Ryan Dalziel takes your for a lap of the 2.35-mile course aboard his No. 1 ARX-03b Prototype (P).

Belle Isle is a 982-acre island located in the Detroit River between Detroit and Canada, which officially became a Michigan state park earlier this year. As far as racing goes, the original plan was for Formula One to move the U.S. Grand Prix from city streets to the park starting in 1989.

When that plan didn’t pan out, the old CART open-wheel series came to the island in 1992. The ALMS raced on Belle Isle in 2007 and ‘08; the Rolex Series had a two-year run that immediately prefaced the merger, in 2012-13.

This Sunday’s USCC 100-min race starts at 1:30 pm.
