Formula 1 is coming to Las Vegas in November 2023.

Starting at 10 p.m. and going past major landmarks like the Bellagio, the Venetian, Caesar’s Palace and the Las Vegas Strip, the race promises a spectacle. The sport is already a juggernaut: The last race of the 2021 season in Abu Dhabi was watched by 109 million global viewers (more than Super Bowl LVI). And adding Sin City to Miami and Austin means that the U.S. will host more F1 races than any other country.
