Ayrton Senna leading the Detroit Grand Prix, with the Renaissance Center looming in the background.
From 1982 to 1988, Detroit was an annual stop on the Formula One racing circuit. The street course was considered one of the toughest on the circuit and even featured a railroad crossing. Senna was the winner of the last three F1 races in Detroit, from 1986 to 1988.
