Those Harborview apartments used to be a drug lair and prostitution den. A fitting place for a pit. I used to date a girl that lived there.

A friend of mine lives there! They are not absolutely terrible, but not good, either. For people with wrecked credit and little/no income, they are actually a godsend as for finding a place to live.

Ellis Island will have a great view of the race. Don't sleep on them. Another friend has already reserved a table at the Front Yard. He is a big player there.

Looks like the empty lots next to Harborview will be the pit/finish. Will be a nice development for that area. Walked through there many times from the Hard Rock to the Tuscany/Ellis. Super creepy.

I wonder what will happen to the old "ICE" nightclub there?

I was curious WHEN:

"The Vegas race, which doesn't have a specific date for 2023 but was announced as being on a Saturday night in November, was announced despite the litigations. But it's an ongoing case, so it will be interesting to see who wins out here".

per:

I also found another map in an LVRJ article.

"Shidfar says that he received a letter in 2013 from Bernie Ecclestone that appointed him to put together an operation to be a promoter for a Las Vegas Grand Prix. Liberty Media says that that's not a contract and that there's no need to honor it."

It sure doesn't sound like a contract; more like an invitation to discuss putting one together.

What is the case number and is there a link to view the complaint?

Sounds like a job offer.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Ashly says platypus.
I am trying to better learn which arguments are worth it.
In any case, I am willing to concede it might be other than a puppydog.

My knee-jerk reaction is this has cluster f*ck written all over it.

Then again, I知 sure every city that does this, faces the same challenges. So maybe they have it figured out.

This should be good for the monorail, because that, and the pedestrian bridges over the strip, are the only current method of getting in or out of that circle without actually being on the street.

Vehicles are a whole other issue. I知 sure that痴 part of the reason why they池e gonna have the race at night - so the streets could be all be open for most of the day.

Here's a short animated video of the track F1 released...



Wow. That is a long straightaway down the Strip. They'll need some crowd control on the footbridges or they'll be clogged.

Anyway, I'm hearing Thanksgiving weekend.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Liberty Media, which owns Formula 1, has bought the area where they plan to put the pit stops and finish line for $240 million. I assume this is the area to the north and west of Harmon Apartments.
No idea what they intend to do with that land the remaining 51 weeks of the year.
