Curious to know what the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix will look like come November? Today there is a short answer to that question, as F1 has just released renderings of some of the track and fan areas.
In total, the F1 featured three different renderings of specific areas. These include Koval Hospitality, the Paddock Zone (which also features the East Harmon Zone), and the MSG Sphere Zone. Minus the paddock zone, all of these fan areas are still available for ticket purchase, with sales beginning March 20 for those making a donation to the Las Vegas Grand Prix Foundation.
The East Harmon zone, shown in the first picture at top, is opposite the paddock zone on the front section. You’ll be one of many people in the grandstands there, and a three-day ticket will set you back $2,500. To no surprise, the renderings show light playing a big part in evocative of the racetrack with dramatic skylights in the distance. It’s right at the Wheelhouse in Las Vegas, and the theme continues in the MSG arena area.
You can recognize the MSG Sphere zone (above) by the giant blue light-up ball in the ground. Many corners go through here, so this is a spot you want to target if you want to see cars going left and right screaming straight into one. Grandstand tickets ($2,000) and general admission tickets ($500) are both available in the MSG Sphere zone, but note that general admission tickets are standing room only.
The final rendering shown by F1 today is of the Koval hospitality area (above). Once again, this area is along a straight line. F1 is promising live entertainment, extravagant cocktails, spectacular track views and lots of “activity” for the masses in this section. To be held in the Koval hospitality sector for the three-day event will be an eye-watering $8,000. But hey, it’s cheaper than the sold-out paddock zone and a $2,000 savings over the still-available skybox section on the main straight.
The Las Vegas GP will be held on 18 November this year, and while we expect to see a championship battle long overdue, Red Bull and Max Verstappen’s pace in the opening weekend is already suggesting that it will be may end.
