Grand Prix of Houston

In case you’re wondering what all the exhaust fumes and noise is over at Reliant Center, it’s not a fleet of moving vans to cart Charley Casserly’s stuff from the Houston Texans Front Office.

No, it’s the Grand Prix of Houston, banished from Downtown to the Reliant Center parking lot.

This is a unique opportunity to see two world class racing events on the same weekend – Champ Car and the American Le Mans. The finest open wheel and sports car racing in America. The exciting Atlantic Series rounds out the race schedule. Motorsports is the fastest growing spectator sport in America and it’s coming to Houston!

The first Champ Car Grand Prix of Houston was held in 1998, and continued annually until 2001. Historically, this event is estimated to generate between $25-30 million in revenue for the city of Houston.
The Texaco/ Havoline Grand Prix of Houston was enormously successful, with over 200,000 fans from around the world attending the three day event.

So be sure to check out the Grand Prix Of Reliant Center’s Parking Lot from Thursday through Saturday… it’s Driveinacircletastic!

    I live near Reliant, and Friday and Saturday nights, I could hear the ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ coming from the Grand Prix. It drove me crazy.
