Formula 1 Las Vegas Presale Ticket Portal Goes Live Shortly

A ticketing pre-registration portal for the upcoming Las Vegas Formula 1 goes live at 9 a.m. PST this morning. The portal will provide fans with a free chance to sign up for access to an exclusive pre-sale event in October for the November 2023 race.

Organizers say that demand for tickets is expected to outstrip the more than 100,000 official spectator capacity.

“A ticket to the Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the hottest ticket in global sport next year,” said Stefano Domenicali, president and CEO of Formula 1, in a statement. “Taking over the sports and entertainment capital of the world for almost an entire week is going to be a game changer for Formula 1 and has the potential to set the benchmark for all global sports and entertainment events in the future. Fans won’t want to miss it.”

Las Vegas Grand Prix Returns

On Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023, Las Vegas will host the region’s first Formula One Grand Prix since 1981.

November’s race will be the first time the course includes the entire Vegas strip. (In 1981 and 1982, the race was held entirely in the Caesars Palace parking lot.)

I think it’s going to be fabulous for the city,” Steve Hill, CEO and president of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), recently told “There just aren’t many opportunities that are this big. I think it’s similar to having a Super Bowl in town every year.”

Spectators can watch as Formula One cars speed along a 17-corner, 3.8-mile temporary loop through Caesars Palace, the MSG Sphere, and the Bellagio, the reported site of its finish line. Top speeds are estimated to be over 212 mph.

Spectators can watch the event live in Vegas, or opt to livestream the excitement

Formula One Vs. NASCAR

Both NASCAR and Formula One are racing competitions, but differ widely in car and course style.

F1 cars tend to be lighter and shorter, making them faster and more powerful than NASCAR. Formula one cars also tend to race faster, reaching speeds up to 223 mph, while NASCAR cars usually reach top speeds of 200 mph.

They also have an open-wheel style, which means the cars are sans fenders and windshields to protect the drivers. NASCAR races also happen on oval racetracks, while F1 races occur on open streets.

Big Money

In May 2022, the LVCVA approved spending $19.5 million in taxpayer dollars (from hotel room taxes) to sponsor F1’s first three Las Vegas races, according to’s own Vital Vegas.

Much of that money is expected to go toward resurfacing streets, which will be milled down 10 inches and then coated in a high-density asphalt.

The race will mark only the third time that the Las Vegas Strip will regularly close each year for an event (the others being the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and New Year’s Eve).

Residents have already been informed that streets along the race course, including sections of the Strip, will close from 7:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of race weekend.

Formula One races will continue in Miami and Austin, with Las Vegas expected to become the brand’s flagship.
