This Friday, April 15, SPEEDVEGAS will officially “start its engines” for the public with the ceremonial track opening, marking the first in series of opening events for Las Vegas’ newest and most exciting adrenaline attraction.
Media check-in will be at 10:30 a.m. for a special drive or ride opportunity before the track opens to the general public.
Doors open at 11 a.m. The first 100 people to arrive at the gate will drive or ride three laps for free. The next 200 to arrive will receive a special offer of “Bring a Friend and Drive for Free.”
The opening day event will begin at 12 p.m. with the National Anthem to be performed by “Lady Gaga” from “Legends in Concert,” the world’s greatest live tribute show; a helicopter flyover and a special guest appearance. Next, SPEEDVEGAS founders Aaron Fessler and Tom Mizzone will race through the ribbon to celebrate the official opening of the track. That event will be followed by a multi-million-dollar parade lap of SPEEDVEGAS supercars. After the parade, the public will be welcomed onto the SPEEDVEGAS track.
Media in attendance will also be the first to get a sneak peek of what is to come this summer when the rest of the $30 million motorsports complex opens, including the 22,000-square-foot, 2-story welcome center featuring indoor and outdoor observation decks, café and meetings and event space.
With the opening of the track, guests will have full access to SPEEDVEGAS’ exotic supercar and muscle car driving experiences. Upon arrival, they can select a car from SPEEDVEGAS’ fleet of world’s most sought-after supercars including models by Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi, Shelby and more. From there, they will drive on SPEEDVEGAS’ 1.5-mile track, which is comparable to top circuits in the world and includes 12 sweeping turns, 20-degree banked turns, 60 feet of total elevation change and a half-mile straight.
On Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Nevada residents, as well as active or retired military with a valid ID, will receive a special offer: bring a non-perishable food item and receive $25 off any SPEEDVEGAS package. The donations will benefitVeterans Village Las Vegas, a transitional and permanent housing residence for United States Veterans that is operated 24/7 by SHARE, a nonprofit organization.
