Right on its bumper, the first-ever Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix zooms onto the Strip.

Here’s how you can be part of the action for this unforgettable moment in Las Vegas history.

Concours Weekend November 10 to 12, 2023

Ready to stroll Wynn Golf Club and explore hundreds of the coolest cars you’ve ever laid eyes on?

Concours at Wynn Las Vegas is your chance to see these limited-edition and one-of-a-kind beauties up close.

Indulge in this celebration of automotive excellence the Wynn way and enjoy curated food and beverage experiences, entertainment, and special Concours event packages.

The centerpiece of the weekend is the Concours exhibition on Saturday, November 11.

This juried display showcases more than 250 examples of pre-and post-war automobiles vying for a variety of coveted award categories, culminating in the top prize of “Best of Show.”

Two prizes also have been added to this year’s exhibition: “Most Fashionable” and “Spirit of Wynn,” open to any car that doesn’t capture “Best of Show.”

Adjacent to the juried exhibition, attendees enjoy a display that has grown this year to include a selection of elite Hypercars from acclaimed brands such as Bugatti, McLaren, and Koenigsegg, and the latest in Electric vehicles.

There are also Concept and Culture cars, ranging from limited-edition autos that exemplify forward-thinking design to famous cars associated with cultural figures or recognized for their appearances in film, television, and music.

With this year’s Concours taking place the weekend before the high-wattage F1 Race Week in Las Vegas, the selection of the event emcee was a natural: Justin Bell, the world-champion British racing driver who has emerged as one of today’s most popular hosts of automotive programming.

Bell welcomes attendees to Saturday’s Concours and trophy presentation before his turn as Grand Marshal of the event that caps the weekend: the Tour d’Elegance, a stunning morning parade of vehicles along Las Vegas Boulevard on Sunday, November 12.

Fold in the room and event packages that allow guests to combine their favorite Concours happenings with Wynn’s award-winning accommodations, and the result is a weekend that once again promises to delight every fan of fine automobiles.

A Grandstand package includes a four-night stay and access to gourmet food and beverages courtesy of Wolfgang Puck Catering across several race zones. 

The Paddock Club is the signature VIP zone for F1 race weekend. Paddock Club package guests receive two tickets per Resort room or each suite bedroom to accompany stays for the entire race weekend. Enjoy exclusive access to the Paddock Club, where race fans indulge in the lounge space that everyone wants to get into.

To rub elbows with the drivers and other esteemed guests, the Wynn Grid Club brings the timeless elegance of the roaring ’20s into this premium experience located in the race’s first turn. Grid Club package members also enjoy unobstructed views of the raceway from their private perch.

Million-Dollar Experience

The pièce de résistance of Wynn’s offerings is the Official FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN SILVER LAS VEGAS GRAND PRIX 2023 Million Dollar All-Access Experience.

Airport transportation and a Jeroboam of Dom Pérignon kick off the festivities. Six guests check into their four-night stay inside an Encore three-bedroom duplex just in time to see the opening ceremonies with an invite-only red carpet party.

Then join F1 diehards in an adrenaline-packed collection of visits, including a pit lane walk, VIP track tour and Paddock tour, and Grid Club passes. To get up close and personal with the site itself, a private photo safari brings race fans right down to the edge of the track. To take it one step further, a Hot Lap provides the immersive thrill of experiencing the F1 track at full speed.

The million-dollar experience takes care of downtime as well. Tickets to Awakening, a dinner for six at Delilah, tee times, and spa and salon treatments are luxurious ways to spend the hours in between race week events. After the last flag is waved, guests receive a lifetime Private Access membership for future visits.
