I thought this would be huge news here, especially as the proposed circuit circles Hard Rock Stadium which could in effect become part of the event:

This should be massive for Miami Gardens! When the Formula 1 circus was here in Adelaide between 1985-1995 it was the biggest thing in the city between the event itself and all the surrounding support events, and many including myself was very sorry to see it go...

I got to start planning myself a trip to Miami ASAP now for two reasons - to finally see my Dolphins play live, and the F1 Street Circuit GP!

Anyone here going this week.

Actually, did anyone here go last year? I had a friend in Australia who went there and loved it, but read mixed reviews from others in the USA. It seemed to be really divided between the megastars and mega-rich who had a great time, and the regular Joes who found the whole thing underwhelming, a bit fake, and a bit of a rip-off.

I saw some complaints about the quality of the track, but I don't know enough about this kind of racing to have an informed opinion.

I'd love to experience this event some day but last year i looked into getting tickets and the cheapest available were around 2000 dollars each.

I can't justify that.  As such I didn't even try to get tickets this year...  I figure its an event for millionaires, celebrities, and sheiks from Abu Dhabi.

I looked at a screenshot of a menu as well as a photo of a Wagu sandwich from the event. What a money grab. Nachos were over $200. You just have too much money if you're doing that.
