F1 Vows to Improve Las Vegas Experience in 2024


Facing significant backlash from locals due to disruptions caused by last year’s inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, F1 has committed to more efficient race preparations for its second event.

A petition urging Clark County to deny F1 a special use permit to close streets for the race “until a fair and undisruptive plan can be made to host this event without closing the Las Vegas Strip” has garnered 2,702 signatures so far.

Economic Impact and Controversy

While last year’s race was reported to generate $1.5 billion for the Las Vegas economy, most of the benefits went to F1 and major casino companies, which tend to favor their senior executives over their general staff. Meanwhile, dozens of off-Strip casinos, small businesses within the circuit, and many tourists and casino employees were negatively impacted by the six-month-long preparations that disrupted Las Vegas Boulevard.

Yost assured that improved communication strategies, including alternative routes, will be implemented to minimize this year’s disruptions.

“Whether it’s to the general public, hotel visitors, or the 120,000 employees working along Las Vegas Boulevard, we will ensure everyone is informed.”

A detailed community and communications plan is expected to be announced next month.

Emily Prazer, F1’s chief commercial officer, noted that the involvement of major casino stakeholders like Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts, and Wynn Resorts provides the financial support necessary to improve operational efficiency for this year’s event.

The 2024 Las Vegas Grand Prix is scheduled for November 21-23, continuing the tradition of a Saturday night race as in 2023.
