The Vegas Strip is home to some of America’s most recognizable landmarks

Unlike the ’80s event, which took place in the parking lot of Caesars Palace, superstars such as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will be driving the iconic Vegas Strip.

Speeding past legendary hotels and casinos such as the Bellagio and MGM Grand at speeds in excess of 200mph is sure to be a sight to behold, and fans have now had their first glimpse.

During a demonstration on Wednesday night, a Red Bull was seen buzzing and drifting past a crowd of adoring fans.

Formula 1 will host a launch party on November 5 with Hamilton, Sergio Perez, George Russell and Alex Albon in attendance just over a year before the scheduled 2023 event.

But the party has already begun as fan footage revealed, with a demonstration in what appeared to be a 2014 championship-winning Red Bull, presumably driven by Perez.

Spectators lined the streets in delight as F1 continues to make waves in the United States, with the Netflix series Drive to Survive being applauded for helping the sport grow exponentially.

In October, the United States Grand Prix in Austin became the highest-attended event in F1 history with 440,000 fans arriving for the three days of on-track action.

But it will be much harder for Americans to show up in Las Vegas, with a recent study showing hotel prices jumping up to 733% for next year’s race weekend.

A study by US outlet 8newsnow took prices from November 17-20, 2022 and compared them to the same dates when the event takes place in 2023.

Stunning numbers show the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino would cost $100 for the three-day period in 2022, but $833 for 2023.
