Nigel Mansell at the Detroit Formula One Grand Prix

The US Formula One Grand Prix was held in Detroit, Michigan from 1982 to 1988.

What makes it special is it's one of the few street circuits in Formula One. Its location and layout made it possible to get spectacular photos like this one, with its superimposition of high technology and stately official architecture.

This is Nigel Mansell driving a Williams FW12 with a Judd CV 3.5 V8 engine.

Ayrton Senna won the race that day driving a McLaren-Honda.
