The Las Vegas Grand Prix is a motor racing event that forms part of the Formula One World Championship, taking place in Paradise, Nevada, in the United States. It is conducted as a night race on a temporary street circuit that includes parts of the Las Vegas Strip. The first race was held on November 18, 2023. Formula One and Las Vegas have signed a ten-year agreement for the race.


The inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, held on November 18, 2023, marked the first Formula One race in Las Vegas since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix and the first street race in the city since the 2007 Vegas Grand Prix Champ Car. The event took place around the Las Vegas Strip on a brand-new street track.[1][2][3][4] It was the third Grand Prix in the United States on the 2023 calendar after the Miami and the United States Grands Prix, and marked the first time since 1982 that there were three races held in the United States in a Formula One season.[5]

Formula One and Las Vegas have signed a ten-year agreement for the race, with the intent being for the race to continue into perpetuity.[6]


The circuit was designed by Tilke GmbH, with the project led by Carsten Tilke, son of Hermann Tilke. Formula One itself purchased a piece of land to build permanent pit and paddock facilities that are used during race weekends.[7]

With a length of 6.201 km (3.853 mi)[8] and consisting of 17 corners, the Grand Prix lasts 50 laps, giving a race distance of 309.958 km (192.599 mi).[9] The circuit is located next to many of the most famous casinos, including a 1.9 km (1.2 mi) straight down the Las Vegas Strip, as well as two other lengthy straight sections.[10]


The only Las Vegas Grand Prix as of 2023 was held at the Las Vegas Strip Circuit.
