Honda at the Detroit Grand Prix

  • Honda’s most recent Detroit victory came last year, when eventual series champion Alex Palou scored the second of his five victories recorded in 2023 en route to his second Drivers’ Championship.
  • Prior to the move downtown, Alex Zanardi scored Honda’s first win on the Detroit Belle Isle course in 1998, on the way to his second consecutive drivers’ championship. 
  • Other Honda-powered winners on Belle Isle include Dario Franchitti (1999); Helio Castroneves (2000 and 2001); Tony Kanaan (2007); Justin Wilson (2008); Dixon (2012, 2018 Race 1 and 2019 Race 2); Mike Conway (2013 Race 1); Simon Pagenaud (2013 Race 2); and Carlos Munoz (2015 Race 1); Graham Rahal (both 2017 races), Ryan Hunter-Reay (2018 Race 2); and Marcus Ericsson (2021 Race 1).

INDYCAR Manufacturers’ and Drivers’ Championships
