Formula One To Hold Las Vegas Grand Prix From 2023


Formula One (F1) has announced there will now be three races taking place in the US from 2023 onwards after the organisation confirmed the Las Vegas Grand Prix will be introduced in November 2023.

The Las Vegas event joins existing host cities Miami and Austin, with the Las Vegas edition to take place on the Las Vegas Strip past famous hotels and casinos over a 14-turn, 3.8 mile (6.12km) circuit.

F1 also confirmed the race will be promoted by F1 and Liberty Media in partnership 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.

The organisers also confirmed the presenting partners for the new Grand Prix will include MSG Sphere, Resorts World Las Vegas, and The Venetian Resort.

F1 president and CEO, Stefano Domenicali, said the announcement shows the growing international popularity of the sport.

“This is an incredible moment for Formula One that demonstrates the huge appeal and growth of our sport with a third race in the US,” Domenicali said.

“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 One to race than in the global entertainment capital of the world and we cannot wait to be here next year.

“I want to thank everyone who helped deliver this event, especially Governor Sisolak, the Clark County Commission, Steve Hill at the LVCVA, and our local partners,” he said.

LVCVA CEO and president, Steve Hill, said: “We eagerly anticipate the moment when the history, energy and momentum of Formula One will culminate in an unforgettable Saturday night on the Las Vegas Strip.”

“Spectators will experience the unrivalled thrill of watching these world-class drivers race through what is sure to become one of the most iconic racetracks in the world.

“Formula One and Liberty Media have been incredible partners, and we look forward to November 2023 when we once again showcase that Las Vegas is ‘The Greatest Arena on Earth’,” Hill said.

The announcement will see the Las Vegas Grand Prix for the first time since 1984, with confirmation the race will remain on the calendar for at least three years from 2023.
