Nüssli creates racing fever in Las Vegas

From November 16 to 18, 2023, the Formula 1 circus will be back in Las Vegas after more than 40 years. Nüssli is responsible for the grandstands in the start-finish area and a VIP area.

In about two months, the world-famous Las Vegas Strip will be filled with the sound of roaring engines and tens of thousands of fans of sleek racing cars. After two editions in the 1980s, the Formula One race will once again take place in Las Vegas on a new street circuit - with Nüssli as partner for the grandstand infrastructure.

140,000 individual system components - a total of 1250 tons of material for the main grandstand alone - are gradually being assembled. The main grandstand will extend over 325 meters along the start-finish straight. The rearmost row of seats is at a height of 18 meters. Nüssli's contract also includes a 250 m long VIP area with a two-story hospitality tent, which will be installed on a 14 m high platform at the rear of the grandstand.

Sustainability also plays a role: Much of the material used has already been used in other events. In addition, local suppliers and partners are involved in the construction process as much as possible to maximize local value creation.
