The Miami Grand Prix will open its doors to the outside world for the first time in early May, and organizing the race in Florida hopes to blow spectators and fans around the world with a unique racing location. Tom Garfinkel, CEO of the Miami Grand Prix, hopes his race can differentiate itself from the rest.
Formula 1 in the United States has become increasingly popular in recent years. The Royal class had a hard time a few years ago selling the only race on the Circuit of the Americas, but there isn’t much to see now. The Miami Grand Prix has been announced as the second US race on the calendar, and we now also know that from 2023 there will be three races in the US with Las Vegas.
For Americans, nothing is too crazy to impress the rest of the world and this should also happen in Miami. Earlier on Tuesday, the popular beach town showed off some images of the newly formed circuit through a video clip and Garfinkel talks about the upcoming Grand Prix in another promotional video. “The idea is that we create a race where people who go to races often think, ‘This is different, this is fun, this is exciting. “Provided that you go in Miami,” says the CEO of Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium, the stadium around which the arena is being built.
The American continues. “Miami Parks and all of South Florida are at the forefront of culture in areas such as fashion, art, music, food and sports. It is a very attractive place. From a racing perspective, we offer the best racing in the world. Technology and engineering,” the best cars and best drivers should really appeal to people who haven’t seen it From before. I think racing here can have a huge impact on people’s lives.”
