202

The first Detroit Grand Prix took place on the streets of Detroit in 1982 when Northern Ireland’s John Watson took the checkered flag on the 17-turn, 2.493-mile course which surrounded the Renaissance Center and included two tough hairpin turns, a tunnel and a run alongside the Detroit River.

The Detroit Grand Prix will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary this weekend with the running of the doubleheader on Belle Isle’s 2.3-mile street course.
