Cheever_1983_Detroit_01_PHCA wet street circuit and an 80s turbocharged F1 machine call for fast hands. Ride on board with Eddie Cheever driving the Renault Turbo RS40 as he tip toes around Detroit.

A thrill ride around Detroit, as Eddie Cheever demonstrates how not to crash whilst piloting a machine with light-switch like throttle response in the pouring rain. We wish more onboard footage was shot during the turbo era!
