Formula 1 has its eyes on Las Vegas for years, but for the first time in decades, we once again have race day for the iconic venue, each Adam Stern of the Sports Business Journal: 16 to 18 November 2023.
Information coming from Letter of Intent (LOI) posted on Twitter by user @Steelbaruhas been confirmed as authentic by Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority. Back in March, sources confirmed that the GP would take place in Vegas on Saturday night Novemberbut the hard days are fruitlessmaybe at that time. Now, this LOI confirms the first race will run on November 18, with the following dates also scheduled for the weekend before American Thanksgiving.
There are some other fascinating details in this LOI, including the fact thatthere will be no activity on track after 4:30 a.m. ET, which is 1:30 a.m. local time. This is currently on track, as it was previously reported that the race will begin at 10pm local time on Saturday – but there is also likely to be other late-night racing activities from both F1 as well. and possible feeder chains.
The Stern report also includes the following information on “guerrilla marketing”:
The document states that LVCVA will work with stakeholders such as local casinos to avoid guerrilla marketing efforts and develop “systems to monitor the perimeter and vicinity of electrical circuits and any any other area in the Las Vegas area where violations may occur during the event period. “F1 has also shown an interest in trying to pass legislation in Clark County to help protect its commercial rights. As previously announced, the document confirms that LVCVA will pay $6.5 million annually to help support various aspects of the race such as public safety, security, volunteering, support marketing, building circuits, and securing space in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Other details include the large amount of supplies needed for the event, including 1,200 fire extinguishers, 900 volunteer police, 15 cranes, 18 trailers, 18 ambulances, and five medical intervention vehicles.
This Agreement is not currently binding, so it is possible that maybe changed – but I have to be honest, there is nothing in this ERROR that is very serious. I wouldn’t be shocked to see these details run across the ground.
