Fans and drivers have been thrilled by the announcement of the Las Vegas Grand Prix. As the motorsport grows in America, the 2023 season will have three races in the USA: Miami, Austin, and Las Vegas. Vegas will be the penultimate race in the 2023 championship on 18th November, before the season wraps up in Abu Dhabi.
According to the official ticket website, the general admission tickets will start from $500 for the three day pass, and these will be in the standing-only area of the MSG Sphere and includes a food and soft drinks package.
The ticket prices go up from there, and with every Grand Prix race weekend, they can get extremely expensive. Tickets in the MSG Sphere Grandstand will be around $2,000, however, this zone gives views of turn 5 to turn 9.
To sit at the start-finish straight, in the East Harmon zone, you would be looking at a price of $2,500. Then going to the other end of the spectrum, to be in the Skybox for a full four days, rather than three, you would need to dig deep at $10,000 per ticket.
The website shows that the tickets are pre-sale only at the moment. Sales will open on November 3rd for anyone who registered for Priority Interest, and then will go on general sale on November 5th.
Unlike what is offered for other Grand Prix’s, you can only purchase a three-day pass as a minimum and there is a limit of eight tickets per customer.
The Las Vegas GP is set to be a big show and amazing atmosphere with the amount that Liberty Media are investing in it, and the fact that it is Vegas. So, $500 for the general admission for three days is not too bad, especially when the food and non-alcoholic drinks are included.
Fans can also expect a much better event than the previous Grand Prix that was set in Las Vegas. The Caesers Palace Grand Prix went down in history for all of the wrong reasons. It was on the F1 calendar in 1981 and 1982 and took place on a track built in a casino car park, so it was no shock that the drivers were less than impressed and barely any fans bothered to go to it. After 1982, the track was used for a CART race in 1983 and 1984 and then was given up on after that.
Let’s hope the Las Vegas Grand Prix will stick around for a lot longer than that one!
