Formula One Race Coming To The Las Vegas Strip

Formula One will have a new street course next year. The Las Vegas Strip.

The Las Vegas Gran Prix will happen in November of 2023, and will be a rare Saturday night race for the international series. One lap will take drivers three-point-eight-miles on and around The Strip, passing landmarks like Caesar's Palace and the Bellagio fountains. Drivers are expected to hit top speeds of 212-miles-per-hour.

The Las Vegas race will be the third stop in the United States next season for F1, which has raced at Circuit of the America’s in Austin, Texas, since 2012 and in May will make its debut in Miami. Barring any shakeups, existing races in Mexico City and Montreal will bring F1 to North America five times next season.

F1 and Liberty are also partnering with Live Nation Entertainment and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority on the race. The founding partners announced Wednesday night were Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts International and Wynn Las Vegas. MSG Sphere, Resorts World Las Vegas and The Venetian Resort were announced as presenting sponsors.

No date was given for the November race, but the Saturday night after Thanksgiving has been discussed. Governor Sisolak says the race is expected to bring in 170-thousand visitors and generate an economic impact of a billion dollars. It will be an annual event.
