Brand new renderings of the Las Vegas Grand Prix are released as excitement continues to grow for the most highly anticipated F1 race EVER… with the cheapest standing room only tickets selling for $500
Excitement continues to build ahead of the first-ever Las Vegas Grand Prix later this year, and the organizers have now released some brand new renderings of what the race will look like under the lights in Sin City.
The sport will descend on Vegas in November for arguably the most highly anticipated race in Formula 1 history – and it won’t come cheap for fans eager to attend.
Another round of ticket sales will take place later in March, and the Vegas team got fans in the mood this week by releasing four brand new renderings of what the track will look like when it’s built.
With the race starting at 10pm, the bright lights of Las Vegas will be in full effect and the footage showed bright white floodlights at the end of the pit straight.
The MSG Sphere – still being made – will also take center stage, with the track winding past the massive globe, opening in September – two months before the race.

The new MSG Sphere, which opens in September, will be a huge milestone on the track
A huge grandstand allows fans to watch the cars come down the straight, although you’ll have to pay a huge amount of money to be there in person.
It was revealed on Thursday that the cheapest three-day ticket package available costs $500, which includes admission on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – but that won’t get you a seat.
Instead, the standing room only ticket includes unlimited food and non-alcoholic drinks.
A ticket with a seat in the main grandstand will set you back $2,500 per person, while the MSG Sphere zone on the other side of the track costs a cheaper – but still substantial – $2,000.
On the other end of the spectrum, Paddock Club tickets are already sold out, despite being offered for $15,000 per person. However, for the wealthier readers among you, don’t fret: private suites are still available, but are so expensive you’ll need to inquire about the price.
Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, March 24, and demand is expected to be huge to secure a spot at the race of the season.
By the time Vegas weekend rolls around, fans will likely have a good idea of who will be the 2023 Drivers’ Champion.

It’s going to be a huge weekend for the American off the grid: Williams’ Logan Sargeant
In the first race of the season last weekend, Red Bull were utterly dominant, with world champion Max Verstappen leading his team-mate Sergio Perez in a one-two for the team.
Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso completed the podium in third, while there was heartbreak for Charles Leclerc, who was forced into a late retirement in his Ferrari.
The Vegas race will be a big celebration for Logan Sargeant, the sport’s newest American driver.
He finished a very respectable 12th in his debut race in Bahrain, just missing out on points but finishing much higher than expected.
