It’s been an exciting year once again for Formula 1, and as we wind down the season many of us will be planning our trips for 2024. So what Grand Prix weekends should be on the bucket list for next year?
That’s a good question. The calendar has already been released and all the usual suspects are appealing, particularly for those that haven’t toured with F1 before.
With the dust settled on the 22-round 2023 F1 title race over with the season finale Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday. Here are five F1 races you should look to tick off your bucket list, three classics and a couple of newcomers to the FIA Formula 1 World Championship calendar.
Monaco Grand Prix
Date: May 24-26: Of course, we will start with the Monaco Grand Prix. It’s the most exclusive event of the year and it’s far more than a sporting event, it’s a weekend of champagne, caviar, yacht parties and gambling, taking your experience of the online world, like a spin on the Wolf Gold slot into the world-famous Monte Carlo Casino. Then it’s time for the drivers to hit the streets of Monaco. There’s really nothing like it.
Italian Grand Prix: Date: August 30 – September 1
Monza is one of the iconic Grand Prix tracks on the planet and a bit of a Mecca for racing fans. Taking place at the height of summer, Monza, which is just north of Milan is a fabulous weekend away, taking in either Monza itself or its neighbouring city, a home of fashion, style and sophistication. There’s so much to do in and around the weekend, but let’s face it, you’re just going to want to spend as much time as you can in this incredible venue for racing.
British Grand Prix
Date: July 5-7: Another certainly on the bucket list is the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Considered the home of racing, the Northamptonshire track is always a thrilling race, and ideal for those travelling from overseas as there’s always tons of sport happening in the country at the time, most notably Wimbledon. You can tick two incredible sporting events off in one go. What’s not to love about that?
Miami Grand Prix
Date: May 3-5: The Miami Grand Prix is a few weeks before Monaco. If you want sun, sand and an incredibly vibrant city lifestyle, then Miami is certainly one to tick off. Held for the first time in 2022, it’s fast becoming a staple of the season, in a state that really does love its motorsport. Perhaps more associated with NASCAR, the natives have taken to Formula 1 amazingly, and it’s a true party event when Formula 1 comes into town.
Las Vegas Grand Prix
Date: November 21-23: It’s fair to say the Las Vegas Grand Prix hit the headlines when it debuted just a short while ago. There are areas that do need to be addressed for it to become a success on the F1 schedule, but it also showed tons of potential, and we’re predicting it’ll go much more smoothly next year and be an event to remember for all the right reasons. For fans, it’s the perfect place for an F1 race, with tons to do trackside, and plenty of ways to make a real weekend of it, from afternoons on the slots to evenings watching the incredible shows. Even without F1, it’s a trip to remember!
