Miami Grand Prix: A Possible Shift to Night Racing
by | VIEW 436
The Miami Grand Prix, an annual Formula One event, has been the subject of discussions about the possibility of transforming into a night race in the future. Six of the current 23 Formula One races are now held under floodlights, and the CEO of the Miami Dolphins, Tom Garfinkel, is exploring the option of bringing this change to the Miami Grand Prix.
Exploring the Possibility
In an interview with reporters in Miami, Garfinkel stated, "We've had some discussions about that. We've had some discussions about potentially doing that." However, he emphasized that they are not at a point where they can make a final decision. "It's obviously this time of year the weather's a little unpredictable, the weather's been nice this year so far, last year was unseasonably hot, but there's a lot of factors that go into that with F1 and television and everything else so we've got to weigh all those things, but we're certainly open-minded to it." Garfinkel further added, "I think we're having discussions where if we did it what would it look like." He also mentioned that they are looking into incorporating some fun elements, such as premium tailgating around football games, where someone can rent out Lewis Hamilton's garage and have a bartender, or a chef, add to the premium experience.
Bringing the Excitement to Life
The Miami Grand Prix organizers are open to the idea of turning their annual event into a night race and are exploring the possibilities. Garfinkel stated, "We'll do some things around football games, but we'll do some fun things," he added. "I'd like to leave the driver signs up above the garages and for football games we'll do some premium tailgating down there.
So someone can rent out Lewis Hamilton's garage and have a bartender, they can pull their car right in, have a chef, do some premium tailgating as well." With this change, the Miami Grand Prix could bring a new level of excitement to the Formula One community.
