Las Vegas will be host to a November round of the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship in a special Saturday night street race to be held alongside the city’s iconic landmarks.
A 3.8 mile (6.12km) circuit with top speeds estimated to be over 212 mph (342 km/h) will include three main straights and 14 corners, including a high speed cornering sequence and a single chicane section.
Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali:
“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.”
Formula 1 and Liberty Media will be acting as race promoters, bringing together Live Nation Entertainment and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Association to realize a vision for the future of the sport in America.
In addition locally, the team includes Founding Partners Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, and Wynn Las Vegas, along with Presenting Partners MSG Sphere, Resorts World Las Vegas and The Venetian Resort.
Liberty Media President and CEO Greg Maffei:
“Iconic Las Vegas and Formula 1, the pinnacle of motorsport, is the perfect marriage of speed and glamour. Our confidence in this unique opportunity is evident in our decision to assume the promoter role for the Las Vegas Grand Prix in partnership with Live Nation. We could not be more excited to work with our local partners to create a marquee event. The potential of Formula 1 has been well demonstrated over the last several seasons and the Las Vegas GP will only take it to the next level.”
2023 will mark a return to the city’s hosting of Formula 1, which last raced there in 1982.
