I thought for sure it was Detroit.

Both Mansell and Prost have won it although Mansell did in an IndyCar.

It has hosted different series.

It is making its comeback this year.

About 14 or so F1 races were held there.

The downtown track was definitely the bumpiest surface. In fact, I still have the video tape of the race in which Prost won. He and 2nd placed Jacques Laffitte were complaining about the bumps to Chris Economaki.


Oh well. Nice job, Ed!! :clap:
