Major Renovations Are Underway At Hard Rock Stadium Ahead Of Miami Race Week 2023 - Miami Luxury Homes
BY Michael Light / On January 22, 2023

With the inaugural Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix being such a resounding success, organizers have set a major renovation of Hard Rock Stadium into action ahead of Miami Race Week 2023. The 2022 event hosted nearly 250,000 spectators in the Miami International Autodrome over three days, making it the most attended event in the history of Hard Rock Stadium, and was ranked as Sports Business Journal’s Best New Event of 2022.

In addition to the accolades, excitement, and overall fun, Miami Race Week brought in over $350 million to the local economy!

To ramp up for the 2023 event, race organizers have made a significant investment into the Miami International Autodrome for the race on May 5-7, 2023.  Here is a breakdown of what to expect:

The New Permanent Paddock Club

A brand-new permanent Paddock Club is being introduced above the pit garages. This has been in the works for the past six months, including a building with 190,000 square feet of space for the Paddock Club that invites over 6,000 guests to premium suites and a luxury rooftop club.

The three-level structure has been built over the team pit garages, offering views of the pit lane and start/finish straight. There will be new global catering experts and more of them. New spaces will open up at The Vista at Turn 1 and The Boathouse at MIA Marina.

Paddock Expansion – Team Village

Imagine having a birds’ eye view of the Team Village with exclusive insight into the behind-the-scenes working of the Formula 1 paddock! This year, you will be able to do this. All Campus Pass ticket holders will be able to access the 300 level of Hard Rock Stadium to look directly into the Team Village from above.

Speaking of the Team Village, it is also going to be expanded onto the Miami Dolphins football field in the center of Hard Rock Stadium. Inside the village will be hospitality units for the ten Formula 1 teams and the drivers will be based there all weekend. Does Max Verstappen really have a temper? Watch and you just might see…

These tickets will go on sale starting Monday, January 23rd.

A New Track

Organizers have brought on renowned German track designers TILKE to repave the entire 3.36-mile track to increase the spectacle for fans. Drivers are now given additional opportunities to overtake one another with improved grip levels. Last year’s race saw 45 overtakes over 57 laps, many more are expected this year.

“After an incredible debut race, we have been working flat-out to ensure the 2023 event is an even greater experience for everyone visiting the Miami International Autodrome,” said Tyler Epp, President of FORMULA 1 CRYPTO.COM MIAMI GRAND PRIX. “Stephen Ross and Tom Garfinkel are committed to making May’s event a best-in-class experience that is unlike any other Formula 1 race in the world. With new and enhanced hospitality experiences, the creation of the F1 Team Village directly on the football field and increased capacity we are expecting our second race to be even bigger and better for the fans, the teams, drivers, partners and everyone in South Florida.”
