This would promote Detroit like crazy!
The Red Bull Air Race World Series, an international race that features planes zigzagging through 65-foot-high inflatable gates, is coming to Detroit on May 31 and June 1. It's one of two North American cities selected for this year's series of races from April to November in 11 nations including Sweden, Australia, Hungary and United Arab Emirates.
Red Bull and Detroit officials expect to announce the event this week, which they said would attract at least 100,000 spectators and pump $64 million into the economy
Talks about CAY airport also!

They are advertising this on TV in Houston. I am thinking about flying up for the day to see it. The first time the add came on we had to rewind the DVR because my wife and I both said "did they say that was in Detroit?" It looks very cool.

When I first saw the AD on CNN, I was like "Detroit?" but I can't wait for more World attention brought to the city
This is bigger than Superbowl XL!

I always hate to be the spoiler, but there is an identical thread at the bottom of the page, almost pushed out by this one.

I just stopped by my local 7-Eleven store here in SCS. They have a big screen TV set up near the cash registers (with their product in front in plain view). The continuously running DVD shows the air races. I saw segments of races in Budapest and Rio De Janeiro.
Looked pretty awesome!

Red Bull gives me wings. It's great for helping cure hangovers too.
