Las Vegas Grand Prix: How a plan 40 years in the making finally came to fruition

A plan 40 years in the making finally becomes reality this weekend, when Formula 1 holds a grand prix on the famous Las Vegas Strip. It hopes to create the most spectacular event the sport has ever staged, and has so far spent more than £500m on the Las Vegas Grand Prix. This is not the first grand prix to be held in Las Vegas. In 1981 and 1982, a race was staged on a track built in the parking lot of the Caesars Palace hotel. Wilm said F1 was “grateful” the Las Vegas Board of County Commissioners has passed a resolution that makes the race weekend available until 2032.
