Sean Bratches of Formula 1 & Tom Garfinkel CEO of the Miami Dolphins & The Hard Rock Stadium
“We are thrilled to announce that Formula One and Hard Rock Stadium have reached an agreement in principle to host the first-ever Formula One Miami Grand Prix at Hard Rock Stadium. With an estimated annual impact of more than $400 million and 35,000 room nights, the Formula One Miami Grand Prix will be an economic juggernaut for South Florida each and every year.
“We are deeply grateful to our fans, elected officials and the local tourism industry for their patience and support throughout this process. We look forward to bringing the greatest racing spectacle on the planet for the first time to one of the world’s most iconic and glamorous regions.”
Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix Circuit
The Miami Grand Prix would have to built from scratch – and fast. But by all reporting, it’s very doable. The circuit would share space with the Miami Dolphins – each corner being built around the mega structure that hosts the AFC Football team.
Should the deal be passed at the County vote, Florida would break a 50 year gap in Formula 1 action when The Sebring International Raceway last hosted F1 racing back in 1959. But don’t get your hopes too high just yet – this is the same mind that concocted the F1TV platform that gave all us Formula 1 junkies hope only to slowly rip it away with the endless bugs. Let’s hope the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix has a different fate. Now we wait until October 28th, 2019.
