The work at F1 Las Vegas GP on-ground seems to be making a slow progress as a source suggested to FormulaRapida.net.
Amid the hype for F1 Las Vegas GP – scheduled to take place on November 16-18 – the work seems to be progressing slowly on ground as per a source to FormulaRapida.net. The person is closely monitoring the progress and suggests they are behind at the moment.
Only few days ago, Maverick Helicopters shared some on-ground images and video of the new pit and paddock building being constructed on a ground bought by the promoters. It should be around the start/finish area which is near the Harbour Island Apartments.
As per the information provided to us, the FIA still hasn’t given a green light after a recent review. The circuit is not fit enough yet to host a grand prix due to lack of preparation of the whole area, which goes through some of the famous places in Las Vegas.
Additionally, they haven’t been able to verify all the required safety measures to host a F1 grand prix which makes it unfit for the moment. But despite the slow progress, the promoters do have about eight months to be ready for the big-ticket event.
Considering it is a street course, it is not uncommon for the promoters to be behind schedule. Most recently, the organisers of the Saudi Arabian GP also faced similar ‘against the time’ charge to be ready for their first event in 2021 in Jeddah.
With the pit and paddock buildings coming up, Geobrugg Motorsport last month conducted a demo installation of the concrete that is to be placed around the Las Vegas GP circuit. Production of the concrete is going on well as per the company.
