A portion of the Las Vegas Strip is set to be shut to traffic for several hours on Nov 5, 2022, so Formula One can host a Las Vegas Grand Prix kickoff party. A full closure of Las Vegas Boulevard between Paris Las Vegas and Harrahs on Nov. 5 was approved Tuesday by Clark County Commissioners to allow for a Formula One demonstration. “Demo runs with actual Formula One cars and actual Formula One drivers that are in the competition to show what those cars are capable of,” said Rutger Jansen, vice president of event production for the Las Vegas Grand Prix. The live car run on the Strip will feature drivers from Oracle Red Bull Racing and Mercedes-AMG Petronas.
The full closure is set to begin at 4:30PM Nov. 5 and last until around 7PM.
