The Grand Prix of the Soviet Union was a race on the Formula One calendar.
It was first held in 1955 on the Pirita-Kose-Kloostrimetsa Circuit, but would not be held again for some time due to allegations of cheating occuring during the weekend. For the 1976 season, the race would move to the Bikernieki Circuit near Riga in Latvia. The race would again be marred, this time by tragedy, as Niki Lauda tragically perished in an accident.
Following the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia on 4th May 1990 the future of the Soviet Grand Prix, held at the Bikernieki Circuit in the former Latvian SSR, was placed into doubt. With the new Latvian government not willing to host the race and the Soviet organisers unable to find a suitable replacement venue in time for the race's scheduled date of 12th August, the race was cancelled and never returned to the calendar.
