Brand new renderings of the Las Vegas Grand Prix are released as excitement continues to build for most highly-anticipated F1 race EVER… with cheapest standing-room-only tickets selling for $500
Excitement is continuing to build ahead of the first ever Las Vegas Grand Prix later this year, and 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 perhaps the most highly-anticipated race in Formula One history – and it won’t be cheap for fans keen 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 circuit will look like when constructed.
With the race starting at 10pm, the bright lights of Las Vegas will be in full effect, and the images showed bright white spotlights at the end of the pit straight.
The MSG Sphere – still being created – will also be center stage, with the track weaving past the huge globe, which is set to open in September – two months before the race.

The new MSG Sphere, due to open in September, will be a huge landmark on the circuit
A huge grandstand will allow fans to watch the cars come down the main straight, although you’ll have to shell out a huge amount of cash to be there in person.
It was revealed on Thursday that the cheapest three-day ticket package available will cost $500, including access on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – but that won’t get you a seat.
Instead, the standing-room-only ticket comes with unlimited food and non-alcoholic beverages.
For a ticket that includes a seat in the main grandstand, you’ll have to shell out $2,500 per person, while the MSG Sphere zone at the other end of the circuit costs a cheaper – but still significant – $2,000.
At the other end of the spectrum, Paddock Club tickets are already sold out, despite being listed at $15,000 per person. For the wealthier readers among you, though, don’t fear: private suites are still available, but are so expensive you have to request the price.
The tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, March 24, and there is expected to be a huge demand to secure a spot at the race of the season.
By the time the Vegas weekend comes around, fans will likely have a good idea of who will be crowned the 2023 drivers’ champion.

It will be a huge weekend for the grid’s resident American: Williams’ Logan Sargeant
In the first race of the season last weekend, Red Bull were utterly dominant, with world champion Max Verstappen leading his teammate 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 huge occasion 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 he was expected to.
