Las Vegas Night Race has been joining the Formula 1 calendar since 2023

Next year, Formula 1 will return to Las Vegas for the first time in more than four decades. However, in contrast to the short-lived Caesars Palace Grand Prix, which lasted for only two seasons at the infamous Hotel Complex car park, the Las Vegas Grand Prix will take you to the city’s famous Strip Circuit.

The Las Vegas Strip has the highest concentration of glamorous hotels and casinos in Nevada, USA, which should provide a suitable theatrical background considering the race will be held after dark.

The 3.8-mile track will be the second longest road circuit in the calendar behind Saudi Arabia’s controversial, concrete barrier-bound Jeddah Corniche circuit. The design includes 14 turns, a “high-speed corner sequence”, a chicken and three straight.

One of these would involve a 1.2-mile-long explosion beneath a strip. According to the simulation, the F1 should hit the car track at a speed of about 212mph. It will be a high-speed lap overall, with average speeds expected to be like those experienced by Manjata for the Italian Grand Prix.

Scheduled for November, the race will run over 50 laps, and the roads will be fully rebuilt in advance to ensure smooth enough for F1 cars. Las Vegas is joining the United States GP in Austin and the Miami GP for the new 2022, one of three Grand-Prix US-hosted events on the calendar next year.

F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali said of the new additions to the calendar: Las Vegas is a destination known worldwide for its excitement, hospitality, thrills and of course the famous strip. “
