Miami Grand Prix to "have a large impact on peoples' lives"

Miami Grand Prix, Managing Partner, Tom Garfinkel is confident that next month's event will "have a large impact on peoples' lives".

Speaking in a promotional video for the event Garfinkel talks about his vision for the race, not least its unique fan experience element.

To bring the glamour and elegance of Formula 1 and the technology of F1 racing to a dynamic, growing city like Miami right now is fantastic," said Garfinkel, the managing partner of the event and the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium CEO, in a promotional video.

"The idea was, how do you create a race for people that are used to going to races to think 'this is different, this is fun, this is exciting'," he says.

"I think, first of all, it's about Miami," continues. "Miami Gardens, and really the whole south of Florida, it's become a curator of culture when you talk about fashion and art, music, food and sports. It's a very attractive place.

"I think from a racing standpoint, we're introducing the best racing in the world and its technology, best engineering, the best cars and the best drivers to, potentially, a large group of people who haven't been around it or seen it before.

"I think that can have a large impact on peoples' lives."

In another video, organisers give fans a look at the Miami International Autodrome and its surrounding 'campus'.

"This close to the race shouldn't we see photo/video updates of the track instead of renders? I was trying to find recent photos on the net to see how the build is going, but could not find anything newer then February. When is the FIA planning on certifying this track, on Thursday before free practice?"

"@kenji
You spoil your efforts with a need to include a snide dig.
I usually avoid feeding trolls. but just FYI there is all the difference in the World between the USA & Saudi.

The death penalty in democratic nation, under the rule of Law, is morally reprehensible. Citizens of the State opposing such Law can openly try to change them.
Executions\murders by a despotic hereditary monarchy for Political or personal reasons are indefeasible. Citizens questioning, let alone opposing Saudi's "Laws" are likely to end up dead.

Spot the difference there?"

"@kenji pathetic means that COTA has no idea of its own to build a race track. practically every corner is to simulate a corner on another track. My view is, dont make a corner like the famous Eau Rouge, do your own. The way F1 is going at the moment , you may as well have a race in a dark warehouse, change the lights and a few bollards, and hey presto, we have a "fabulous new" track. The number of venues now is a joke, the more milk you pour into a cup of coffee the weaker it makes the coffee. 20 is more than enough. One GP per country is ample. Rant over."

"
i am constantly reminded of the narrow focus being directed towards Miami and the new race....before even one race lap has been completed! Given that Liberty have now dispensed with all the game show plastic hoopla that they introduced at COTA the race there now is excellent event, COTA is, IMO, a great track. I'm keeping my mind open until this new race has been completed rather than diss on the location amid what seems to be a concerted effort to protest. Miami track looks fine and may well deliver another dose of good close wheel to wheel racing which is the fundamental objective..... rather than the location which is of secondary importance.
@Roli....what is it that caues you to deem COTA pathetic?


i might add that for the record i have read that the USA still maintains the death penalty in some states and according to the 'records' has implemented that punishment on average 30 times a year over the past 5 years! Will certain drivers be seeking to change that via protest despite them maintaining a presence by not only visiting for leisure purposes but actually doing business there ?



usa also has "
