  United States Grand Prix East - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For 1989, it was originally planned to move the F1 grand prix to a new circuit at Belle Isle.
However, early on, an agreement could not be established, and the grand prix moved to Phoenix for 1989-1991.
The Grand Prix was discontinued after the 2001 race because there were not enough paved areas on the island for support activities, and the overall uncompetitive nature of the course.

Grand Prix racing's normally aspirated era was coming to an end and in 1983 it proved an uphill struggle, although Rosberg did win in great style at Monaco.
Rosberg won the USA East Grand Prix, Mansell's two consecutive wins at Brands Hatch and Kyalami were particularly sweet as they were his first in Formula One and Rosberg's victory in Australia ensured a team hat- trick to round off the season.

There had been the odd exception of course, usually relating to the USA, or when an alternative circuit stages a 'European' race.

 Soup :: Yamaha Set-up Report for Brno
The Czech Republic Grand Prix takes place at the legendary circuit of Brno, located just over 200 kilometres south-east of the capital city of Prague, where last year Rossi took victory and the lap record as he edged towards his fifth straight title.
Fittingly this weekend marks the thirteen-year anniversary of Rainey's final 500cc victory for the factory at Brno and is also precisely a decade since Rossi took his maiden Grand Prix win at the very same circuit in the 125cc class.
Used for a Grand Prix for the final time in 1977, the old track was replaced in 1987 by what is basically the current incarnation, subtly altered in 1996 to measure 5.403km in length.
