Las Vegas race date revealed

NEWS STORY
15/08/2022

The date for Las Vegas' return to the F1 schedule has been revealed in a letter to the city's Convention and Visitors authority.

The race will be held on Saturday 18 November, and while races were regularly held on Saturdays in the 50s and 60s, this is the first time in over thirty years.

Though F1 boss, Stefano Domenicali confirmed last week that the 2023 schedule will not be revealed until October, a 17-page letter to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority which was leaked on social media - and since substantiated - reveals the event will take place on 18 November, a week before the Thanksgiving holiday.

The race will start at 22:00, which is 05:00 GMT.

Furthermore, the race, which is being promoted by F1 itself and Liberty Media, has a 5-year contract, with the event due to be held on the same weekend for the duration of the contract.

Though unconfirmed, and seemingly flying - no pun intended - in the face of F1's desire to plan the calendar by region in order to reduce travel back and forth across the globe, the race could form a back-to-back event with the season ending race in Abu Dhabi.

Domenicali also said that the planned schedule is likely to consist of 24 races, though it is now understood that South Africa will not be included.

"Well I don't think may people in England, Europe and Africa will be getting up at that time of the Morning just to see if the Las Vegas Fiasco is worse than the Miami Fiasco and being a Saturday I wonder if the intent is to have Qualifying even earlier in the morning.
But FoM have already sold the advertising and television rights so they don't care about actual viewership figures."

"More and more proof that Liberty do nothing but blow smoke.....

They'll do anything for the almighty $

Did any of us actually fall for their claims of organising the schedule by region?"
