Wednesday Wiki: Detroit Grand Prix

Today's random Wikipedia page had little more information that last week's page. Today, I found the Detroit Grand Prix page.

The Detroit Grand Prix ran Formula One (fastest single seated races in the world) races from 1982 to 1988 in Detroit, Michigan. The course was on Detroit city roads, rather than a track, that covered just shy of 2.5 miles and contained 17 turns that included a tunnel and railroad tracks.

In 1989, the race was moved to Phoenix, Arizona after a plan to create a new course fell through. Check the article for a list of the winners of the yearly race from '82-'88.
