he 14-turn track will run for 3.8 miles (6.12km) with top speeds expected to hit around 212mph (342km/h).
The design features three straights, a high-speed cornering sequence and a single chicane section, with the Grand Prix to be run over 50 laps.
F1 and Liberty Media will work together to promote the race in partnership with Live Nation Entertainment and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), as well as Founding Partners Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, and Wynn Las Vegas and Presenting Partners MSG Sphere, Resorts World Las Vegas and The Venetian Resort.
As expected though there was mixed reaction to the announcement on Thursday among supporters, with one fan hoping the new track could be an evolution on the race at Monaco.
They said: ‘I think Vegas fits F1 culture so well especially for a US city. It’s like Monte Carlo on steroids.’
Others were looking forward to the scenic attraction of the venue, with one fan stating: ‘Hate it all you want but a F1 race through the strip is epic IMO,’ while a reply was just as enthusiastic saying: ‘It really will be. Vegas always does crazy things too. I envision a podium on the Bellagio fountains.
There was lots of praise for the project in general too and the difficulties it will overcome such as closing down the strip, with the pay-off being worth it.
‘Wow, can’t believe they’ll actually close down the strip. This is gonna be some f****** project but s*** it will be so cool’, one fan said, while another echoed similar sentiments, saying: ‘I’m actually so made at the fact that I can picture what it might be like there and I can’t be there. It seems so f****** cool.
