This weekend the Formula 1 circus will descend on the entertainment city of the world: Las Vegas. Will it be a race to remember, or will what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas?
“After a 39-year hiatus, a Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend will take place in Las Vegas, with a new and improved circuit that includes iconic locations like the Bellagio Hotel and the Las Vegas Strip. The race will be held on Saturday, November 18 at 22:00 local time, deviating from the traditional Sunday race to accommodate different time zones. To embrace the city’s gambling culture, the kerbs on the track will be painted with spades, diamonds, and clubs. Las Vegas, known for its glitz and glamour, is expected to attract big celebrity names throughout the weekend. The Las Vegas Sphere, a permanent music and entertainment facility, provides a unique immersive experience with its 16K LED screens. Despite the high ticket prices, demand for the event is strong, with some tickets already sold out. For those willing to spend $5 million, a luxury package is available, offering exclusive access and accommodations. The official opening took place on Thursday morning at 03:30 GMT.”
