After adding cities to the 2023 calendar, F1 cars will hit the Las Vegas Strip

Robert Goulet was the title at the tune. Sand, The Rivera and Stardust were all eager to raise cash for a night or two. Caesar’s palace hosted a Formula One race. The year was 1982, and race cars were exploding around the palace’s parking lot. It’s been 40 years since the F1 machine screamed in the strip, and the city of neon lights will soon be hosting the F1 circus again.

Late Wednesday, F1 organizers announced plans to add a new Las Vegas Grand Prix to the calendar, with the first race to be held in 2023. It will be a night race to showcase the city’s famous lights and will be held on a Saturday in November (instead of the usual Sunday schedule).

This means that three F1 Grand Prixes will begin in the United States from 2023, the other two established United States Grand Prix will be held annually at the Texas Circuit of America, and a new Miami Grand Prix that will join the calendar this year, the first race scheduled for May 8. . The Miami race will take place on a street circuit adjacent to Hard Rock Stadium.
