Miami Grand Prix Track Guide

The inaugural edition of the Miami Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on 6th to 8th May at International Miami Autodrome

The Miami Grand Prix is all set to make an extravagant debut in Formula One. The GP will take place at the Miami International Autodrome. It is a circuit built around the Hard Rock Stadium in the suburb of Miami Gardens, Florida. The circuit has an FIA Grade 1 license.

The Miami GP circuit is 5.410 km in length covering a total of 57 laps. It is designed in a way that residents would not be disturbed by the race. The track is a permanent-style circuit with temporary infrastructure such as barriers and fences which will be removed when there is no racing.

The circuit is located within the private Hard Rock stadium grounds and will not use any public streets located around the stadium. A few weeks before the race weekend, the circuit and its safety features will be assembled. After the race weekend, the circuit will be dismantled and the Hard Rock stadium facility will be converted back to normal.
