New insane Formula One Las Vegas circuit pictures have been released, it's going to be the greatest Grand Prix in history
| Last updated
New images of how the Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix will look have emerged and it promises to be quite the spectacle in Sin City.
Vegas hosted the Caesars Palace Grand Prix in 1981 and 1982 but things will be taken up a notch in November when Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and co race around the entertainment capital of the world.
The course under the lights of the famous Las Vegas strip at 10pm local time, includes the soon-to-be-opened MSG Spheres , Caesars Palace Treasure Island, The Mirage, and the Bellagio Hotel.
It's a track spanning 3.8 miles, with 14 corners and three main straights for the November 18 race. The strip is set to total around 1.2 miles according to AutoWeek, with the pits to be located on East Harmon Avenue.
Some of the biggest names in the sport were at the launch back in November but these new images, shared by the Las Vegas Convention and Business Authority, will get fans seriously excited.
Vegas is by far the most exciting addition to the 2023 F1 calendar and Nevada Governor Steve Sisola is predicting “170,000 visitors on race weekend" and an economic impact of half a billion dollars.
But of course tickets for the extravaganza are not on the cheap. $500 £(418) is the lowest price for tickets, which includes three days of admission to the MSG Sphere and unlimited food and non-alcoholic drinks but does not include a seat in the stands for the action.
They go on sale on March 24. Paddock Club tickets costing £12,500 per person have already sold out, while Caesars Entertainment are selling an outrageous 'Emperor's Package' of which only 12 are available.
The £4 million VIP package includes tickets to watch Adele live at Caesars Palace as part of her long residency, a five-night stay in a luxury 4,700-square-foot terrace suite overlooking the Las Vegas strip circuit, private meal at Nobu, a 24-hour butler, Rolls Royce chauffeuring and Paddock Club passes.
Sharing excitement for the event, Greg Maffei, Liberty Media President and CEO, commented: "Iconic Las Vegas and Formula One, 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 One has been well demonstrated over the last several seasons and the Las Vegas GP will only take it to the next level."
