Bestinau got that-
Formula 1 cars will race under the lights on the Las Vegas strip in 2023 as part of a new event on the championship calendar, merging Austin and Miami as host locations in the US.
Las Vegas hosts its event on a Saturday night in November, a rarity in an F1 calendar of Grand Prix events on Sundays.
During the race, some of the city’s most famous landmarks, hotels and casinos will be featured in a multi-year deal with F1.
On the 6.2km track, cars whiz past Caesars Palace, Bellagio Fountain and Mandalay Bay, as well as the spherical MSG Sphere, which is currently under construction and should be ready next year.
The date of the first event has yet to be confirmed.
American interest in F1, bolstered by the Netflix blockbuster series ‘Drive to Survive’, is growing like never before and has led to a surge in interest in race hosting.
This year’s first Miami Grand Prix will take place on May 8. Austin’s Circuit of the Americas has hosted the US Grand Prix since 2012, only missing 2020 due to the pandemic.
“This is an incredible moment for Formula 1 that demonstrates the tremendous appeal and growth of our sport with a third race in the US,” said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.
“Las Vegas is a destination known around the world for its excitement, hospitality, thrills and of course the famous Strip. There is no better place for Formula 1 to race than in the global entertainment capital of the world and we can’t waiting to be here next year.”
Miami joins Austin’s Circuit of the Americas (COTA), which will host the US Grand Prix in October. Until this year, COTA was the only American race on the F1 schedule since 2012.
