Las Vegas will return to the calendar in 2023 with highly anticipated night race
Formula 1 will return to Las Vegas next year with the night race taking place on the famous strip – marking the third US destination on the calendar.
The Las Vegas grand prix will be held on a Saturday night in November, according to officials, and will potentially be around Thanksgiving holidays locally.
The track will see all twenty drivers speeding past some of the city’s most legendary landmarks, hotels, and casinos.
The track design is 6.1 km long from start to finish with top speeds estimated to be over 341 km/h.
There will be 50 race laps with three main straights and 14 corners, including a high-speed cornering sequence and a single chicane section.
Stefano Domenicali, president, and chief executive of Formula 1, said: “This is an incredible moment for Formula 1 that demonstrates the huge appeal and growth of our sport with a third race in the US.
“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 cannot wait to be here next year.”
Vegas previously hosted two F1 Grands Prix in the 1980s but instead of the Strip, they took place in the carpark of the Caesars Palace hotel.
