The Las Vegas Grand Prix will sell some tickets for £408 ($500) – but there is one bizarre condition, they do not come with a view of the track. Fans have been left baffled by the hitch ahead of Formula One’s first ever lucrative visit to Sin City. 

Vegas will host a big-money race in November and the eye-watering prices for tickets have already been revealed. £408 general admission tickets have already sold out but a second round of ticket-buying is set to commence over the coming months. 

It will apparently include some tickets which do not offer an ability to see the track, despite that being the main attraction for most racegoers. 

According to F1 journalist Adam Stern, the ‘no-track-view’ tickets will be available in ‘a few months’ time’. Fans have reacted with bafflement about the decision to sell tickets to attend a race that you cannot see with your own eyes.

Responding to a Reddit thread about the news, U/Krouisente sarcastically observed: “Ah yes, I’ve always wanted to go to a Grand Prix and not see the track at all!” U/Stanced bluntly put it: “I’m sorry – without what??”

U/frankyfrankwalk does not think the idea is particularly outlandish, but would rather not pay the price touted. They said: “To be fair, having a fun time party with mates near the track where you could hear the sounds of those beautiful V8s was one of the best things I’ve ever done. However, I didn’t pay 500 f****** dollars for the privilege of being near the track and hearing the cars.”

U/Zannetidis pointed out: “You all laugh, but those $500-NoTrackView tickets will probably sell out faster than normal tickets.”

“I have a few of those tickets available from my backyard,” U/AlienSomewhere joked. “Granted I’m thousands of miles away from Las Vegas, but you’ll get the same experience.”

The Las Vegas Grand Prix is set to be one of the most lucrative races on the F1 calendar this year. The sport’s governing body has been granted permission to run the race through the city’s famed Strip until 2032, with the likes of Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc vying for a historic triumph. 

VIP packages for the race have already easily exceeded the seven-figure range. Last December, Caesars Entertainment revealed its ‘Emperor Package,’ which costs a whopping £4million ($5m).

The package includes a dozen Paddock Club passes throughout race week, tickets to see Adele in concert at Caesars Palace, five nights in a 4,700-square-foot terrace suite overlooking the racetrack, around-the-clock butler service, use of a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce, and a private meal with Michelin-starred chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
