In today’s hyper-media Formula 1, not everything revolves around the race itself, but side events play their part that create entertainment and business, two words very dear to the current top management. And therefore, the charm of the Las Vegas Grand Prix (November 18, 2023) is accompanied by a clear glamor since its official announcement. A few days ago, Formula 1 also confirmed it will organize a Launch Party for next Saturday, 5 November (a special event to launch the GP) at Ceasars Palace.
The party, which will therefore be held one year before the race, will be free and will last 12 hours (from 11 in the morning to 11 in the evening). Several Formula 1 teams and drivers will be present at this event, where fans will be able to hear the roar of the engines and witness the power of the cars up close in one of the most iconic cities in the world: there will also be a challenge between Red Bull and Mercedes on the Las Vegas Boulevard, as well as many fun activities, (pit stop challenges, simulators, drone show, trophies and gifts), for 500 lucky people over 21 and there will also be an opportunity to win a complimentary ticket for a private VIP celebration taking place that night, which features a performance by The Killers.
Stefano Domenicali, F1 president, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome our fans to this party. The Las Vegas Grand Prix will become a regular fixture in the city and on the global sporting calendar, so it is important to have local fans both celebrated and celebrating with us from the very start. This launch is a small but exciting taste of things to come over the course of the next year, when all the Formula 1 teams hit the Strip ”.
Marilyn Kirkpatrick, Clark County Commissioner, said: “No destination is better prepared than Las Vegas to host an international event of the caliber of the Las Vegas Grand Prix. We look forward to showcasing our world-class travel and tourism facilities and customer service, and making this race the shining star of the Formula 1 schedule.”
