The Baltimore Grand Prix will be a spectacular three-day "festival of speed" in downtown Baltimore, taking place September 2-4, 2011. It will be part of the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule and the 2011 American Le Mans Series schedule. The weekend event will feature world-class motorsports competition from several racing series, culminating in Sunday's IZOD IndyCar Series race. In addition to the high-speed thrills of professional racing, a wide variety of entertainment and activities will be scheduled for people of all ages to create an exciting three days of speed and entertainment. The racetrack is a two-mile temporary street circuit in and around the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards, including sections of Russell Street, West Pratt Street from Paca Street to Light Street, along the Inner Harbor on Light Street, and up Conway towards the stadium. Although the race will be held on actual city streets, for one weekend this urban environment will be transformed into a world class racetrack with the best possible safety equipment and fan facilities.
