Miami Grand Prix organisers have announced the name of the track that will be making its F1 debut in 2022.

This comes after the Grand Prix received a lot of opposition locally for its placement on the F1 calendar plus a number of factors that brought about its delay.

Construction is underway on the 5.41 KM and 19-turn track that will be known as Miami International Autodrome.

The circuit, which is expected to have a May date on the 2022 F1 calendar, is based around the Hard Rock Stadium campus that is also home to the Miami Dolphins American football team.

Tom Garfinkel, the event’s managing partner, said: “I’m happy to reveal that the official name of our circuit is the Miami International Autodrome.

“We’ve worked hard to create a circuit that has great racing and multiple passing opportunities.

“In addition, we are working to innovate fan experiences across the Hard Rock Stadium sports and entertainment campus in Miami Gardens, experiences that reflect how Miami has become an international curator of culture across food, art, fashion, music, and sports.”

The 2022 race heralds the start of a 10-year contract for the event that becomes the second for the US on the calendar alongside the United States Grand Prix in Austin.
