Formula 1 Racing Circuit looks at downtown Miami run
Written by Miami Today on May 4, 2018
Imagine Formula 1 race cars zooming from the mainland to PortMiami and back again. It’s a possibility as the city commission prepares to consider a deal bringing the Formula 1 Racing Circuit to the City of Miami.
On the commission’s May 10 agenda is a resolution supporting the efforts to bring Formula 1 racing to the city for the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix from 2019 to 2028, and to direct the city manager to formalize the necessary contractual agreement between the city and Formula One World Championship Limited.
The Formula One World Championship is considered the pinnacle of motorsport, showcasing high speed, open-wheeled racing since 1950.
A map provided to city commissioners shows the potential race course, which would have cars looping around AmericanAirlines Arena, traversing a potion of Biscayne Boulevard, onto a half-circle entry drive to Bayside Marketplace, and onto Port Boulevard to PortMiami and back on Northeast Sixth Street.
