Residents in Clark County will be able to catch a glimpse of the Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix for free due to a partnership between the race organization and county.
Clark County and the Las Vegas Grand Prix are working together to host watch parties at three different locations in the Las Vegas Valley.
Starting at 8 p.m. on Nov. 18, residents can grab a seat at the Clark County Government Center Amphitheater downtown or Water Street Plaza in Henderson to watch the race. Food trucks will be parked at both locations for purchase, the county said in a press release.
Seating at the amphitheater is limited, so residents are encouraged to reserve their spot at this website: https://www.seetickets.us/event/Formula-1-Watch-Party/573867
“As the excitement in our region grows ahead of the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix on November 18, it was important to Clark County that we find a way to make this race more accessible to our residents,” said Jim Gibson, chair of the Clark County commission, in a press release. “Through this partnership with F1, we have been able to provide free watch party experiences that are as close to being at the race itself, with food truck options, large screening capabilities, and audio that is without delay. I thank the Las Vegas Grand Prix for this viewing partnership as well as the City of Henderson and Nellis Air Force Base for their enthusiasm in making this a reality for our community.”
Those with military identification can RSVP to watch the race at an indoor location on the Nellis Air Force Base in North Las Vegas. Doors will open for this event at 8 p.m. on Nov. 18.

The race will be streamed for free on screens at each of the three locations, according to the county. Giveaway items will also be distributed to the first 100 people to arrive at each location.
Opening ceremony celebrations start at 8:45 p.m., and the race will begin at 10 p.m.
