Report: Las Vegas close to landing F1 race

Formula One is in advanced negotiations with Las Vegas to bring an annual race to the Las Vegas Strip, Sports Business Journal reported Thursday.

F1 execs visited the area in recent months while communicating with Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak and the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority, among other stakeholders, per the report.

If a new race comes to fruition, it would mark the third race on American soil on the F1 calendar. Austin, Texas, has hosted a race since 2012 and a new event in Miami is being added in 2022.

There was briefly an F1 race in Las Vegas between 1981 and 1984 known as the Caesars Palace Grand Prix, for which a temporary track was built in the parking lot of the Caesars Palace hotel. Last November, an F1 journalist reported that a proposed Las Vegas track would incorporate the Strip and pass the dancing fountains outside Bellagio Casino.
