About the Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT
The third annual Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT is one of only two events in the United States to feature the IZOD IndyCar Series and the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) presented by Tequila Patron in the same weekend. The IZOD IndyCar Series runs 75 laps around the Grand Prix’s 12-turn, two-mile street course adjacent to the famed Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore. The ALMS race is a timed competition, with the team completing the most laps in 2 hours and 45 minutes taking the victory. The Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT also includes Firestone Indy Lights racing and, for the first time in 2013, the largest single-make series in North America: the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama.
Between races, kids can enjoy activities in the Esskay Family Fun Zone that include high-performance Autobahn go-karting, Pinewood Derby races, Radio Disney performances, bounce houses, and an obstacle course designed by Port Discovery Children’s Museum.
Music on the Grand Prix’s main stage will consist of the Doyle Brothers – a New York-based band combining the timeless classics of the Everly Brothers with the modern swagger of Michael Bublé and Bruno Mars – and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute band, The Waiting. Many local attractions are also offering discounted admission during race week upon presenting your Grand Prix ticket stub.
