Organisers of Formula 1’s Miami Grand Prix say their venue is nearing completion ahead of the inaugural event in early May.
Miami’s Formula 1 round has been several years in the making but the Miami International Autodrome will hold the fifth event of 2022 on May 8.
The MIA is located on street-style roads on the campus that is dominated by the Hard Rock Stadium.
The circuit itself, and the laying of tarmac, has been completed, with residual work ongoing to put the finishing touches to permanent buildings and temporary elements such as safety barriers and kerb painting.
“We’re in the final stages of this incredible circuit that will host the first-ever Formula 1 race in Miami,” said Miami GP CEO Richard Cregan.
“We are delighted with the progress we have made and it’s a huge credit to the hard work of the team here in Miami, in consultation with both Formula 1 and the FIA to get this circuit finished in a tight timeline.
“We have tried to create a track that drivers love to race on and a campus that offers unique, best-in-class fan experiences; and we can’t wait for the first weekend in May.
“In my experience of working with new venues over the years, I’ve never seen as much effort on perfecting the surface of the track as we have done in Miami.
“Everything was exactly per the design, and everyone involved in construction has done an incredible job.”
