LAS VEGAS, CAESARS PALACE
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description Street circuit obtained mostly in Caesars Palace Hotel parking. It hosted Las Vegas F.1 GP in 1981 and 1982; they were both the last of the season and both crucial for world championship giving. F.1 race was in 1983 calendar too, bur it was canceled after season started. In 1983-1984 GP was raced by Cart on an oval track (not shown in my map) obtained more or less from external perimeter of F.1 one, but with a different layout in corner 14 area.

Caesars Palace
Description In August 1981, few weeks before Las Vegas F.1, organizers announced that they slightly changed track layout, by canceling a couple of corners. Even before the GP, the track was considered similar to a kart track and it gave raise to complaint because of safety and for having no room for journalists and photographers.
