Yes, as Mark hjas stated, this nis an international thing. Last year they
had one of the races here on the Detroit River in Detroit. Well, I needed
explain how dire automotive and general sponsorship is right now, so it's
still going to be here (kinda), but across the river in Windsor, Canada.
Hey, the GM Building makes for a better photographic backdrop anyways ;-)
They are some amazing pilots. They broadcast it (much later) on Speed.
Here's last year's Detroit Event on Hulu (watch it for free). It was
awesome to watch in person:
Hope to see it in Windsor, Ontario, Canada June 13th and 14th
