Baltimore Grand Prix August News 

The Track...


On July 25th we finally reached the point with 40 days until race weekend! For those of you who do not know, this means that construction has officially begun. At 7pm on July 25th the first track walls were setup on Light Street in front of the Inner Harbor Amphitheater. Over the next 30 days the remaining track walls will be put in place throughout the 2 mile 13 turn racetrack. that navigates through the Inner Harbor and downtown Baltimore. In total 2,200 12 foot track walls will be used. In addition to the track walls, the grandstands are also in construction.  Grandstands are being setup throughout various locations as well as safety fencing along the track. The beginning of this process is a huge step toward our inaugural event because now in less then 40 days, thousands of people will be watching racecars speed through the streets of Baltimore at 180 mph!  

The track and grandstands are not the only things currently being constructed. Pedestrian bridges and hospitality units will also be constructed within the next 32 days. These things along with the track will make the Inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix a smooth running, successful event.  Exactly 30 days after race weekend the grandstands, fencing, hospitality, and all track walls will have been removed with no traces left behind. (Until next year!)
