Miami GP organisers reveal official name of 2022 venue


The magic city of Miami will make its entry on to the Formula 1 calendar next year, and the race's organizers have revealed the official name of the venue that will host the new round.

The 5.41km, 19-turn street circuit laid out around the Miami Dolphins' Hard Rock Stadium will be know as the Miami International Autodrome.

No firm date has yet been attributed for the inaugural Formula 1 event, but the race is expected to take place during the month of May.

"Iโ€™m happy to reveal that the official name of our circuit is the Miami International Autodrome," said Tom Garfinkel, Managing Partner of the F1 Miami Grand Prix.

"Weโ€™ve worked hard to create a circuit that has great racing and multiple passing opportunities.

"In addition, we are working to innovate fan experiences across the Hard Rock Stadium sports and entertainment campus in Miami Gardens; experiences that reflect how Miami has become an International curator of culture across food, art, fashion, music, and sports."

Miami finalized its ten-year contract with Formula One Management last spring after a series of setbacks.

The race will become the second event to be staged in the US, with Austinโ€™s Circuit of the Americas a permanent fixture on the calendar since 2012.
