The Detroit Street Circuit is a motor racing circuit on the streets of Detroit, in the U.S. state Michigan. It was set up near the Renaissance Center and the Cobo Arena, also including a part of the M-1 Highway (also known as the Woodward Avenue). It is a flat circuit with an elevation ranging from 176m to 184m above sea level. It is 4.023 km (2.449 miles) in length and has 22 turns. In 1982, the inaugural race of Detroit Grand Prix was held here in which John Watson claimed victory after starting from the 17th position. The following year, Watson beat his own record by starting at the 22nd position in the Long Beach. Detroit Street Circuit's place in the Formula One history was nailed down when Italian racer Michele Alboreto won the 1983 Grand Prix, driving Tyrell 011. This was the last time when a Formula One race was won with a 3.0L Cosworth DFV V8 engine.
