When the American city holds a night event in 2023, the world-famous neon lights of Las Vegas will provide the background for Formula 1’s newest race. The Las Vegas Grand Prix will take place in November. Although races were held in Las Vegas in 1981 and 1982, this will be the first time F1 vehicles will compete on the famous Las Vegas Strip, which will sweep past notable hotels and casinos.
This isn’t going to be a simple race. The Grand Prix of Las Vegas will be a spectacle. The city will be packed, with over 150,000 hotel rooms, delivering the kind of energy and exciting atmosphere Formula 1 has never seen before.
The 14-turn track will be 3.8 miles (6.12 kilometres) long, with top speeds of roughly 212 mph (342 km/h). The Grand Prix will be run over 50 laps and will comprise three straights, a high-speed cornering sequence, and a single chicane sector.
In collaboration with Live Nation Entertainment and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), as well as Founding Partners Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, and Wynn Las Vegas, and Presenting Partners MSG Sphere, Resorts World Las Vegas, and The Venetian Resort, F1 and Liberty Media will promote the race.
