Miami emerging as likely destination for second US F1 race

Written by  Feb 16, 2018

Miami is emerging as the likely destination for a second Formula 1 race in America with "very active" talks underway, according to McLaren executive director Zak Brown.

The city in Florida was one of several touted as preferred options with owners Liberty Media keen to add a second Grand Prix in the States as part of a drive to increase interest in the sport.

New York is the alternative, though plans for a race in New Jersey fell through earlier in the decade, but with Miami set to host an F1 event similar to that in London last year, it would be natural to see that as the first step.

“The festivals will be big, they are definitely happening,” Brown said.

"I’d be surprised if we can get it done for next year just because of the infrastructure which would need to be built up, but l think it’s definitely a pre-cursor to another race in North America and they are definitely very active in conversations around Miami.

"It’s definitely warming up America and that market,” he added.

Should such plans go ahead it would not be the first time the USA has had two races on the schedule with an East and West Grand Prix held in the late 1980's, early 1990's.
