Prepare for more white-glove experiences at Las Vegas’ racetrack.
Construction equipment is destroying seat sections above Turns 3 and 4 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to make room for a transferred high-end hospitality location and a brand-new 25-space luxury RV section.
Speedway officials are moving VIP hospitality, which has room for about 10,000 fans, to the new location from its former area behind the grandstand. The brand-new VIP area, to be utilized by corporate hospitality race fans and called, “Vegas Village,” will offer a closer view of the 1.5-mile track and a breathtaking view of the Las Vegas valley.
Business purchase blocks of at least 50 tickets to get entry into the VIP hospitality location, which will be above Turn 4. Single VIP tickets are not readily available.
The new high-end Recreational Vehicle spots will be beside the new VIP hospitality place and offer high-end services to race fans. Each Recreational Vehicle area is 30 feet large and will certainly cost $8,000 for the speedway’s trademark event, NASCAR weekend in March when the Kobalt 400 is held on March 6. The brand-new high-end Recreational Vehicle location is called, Vegas Outdoor patio.
“These Recreational Vehicle customers desire a white-glove experience,” said Chris Powell, Las Vegas Motor Speedway president.
Each brand-new Recreational Vehicle area will include totally free Wi-Fi, english breakfasts, garage tours, scanners to pay attention to driver/team communications, access to a lounge, a 10 percent gift purchase discount rate and eight passes.
There ares concierge service. “You can get dry cleaning or a 30-pack of Bud Light from concierge,” Powell said.
The speedway currently has two other Recreational Vehicle areas. One has area for 71 Recreational vehicles along the back stretch, while a second RV area has room for 37 huge vehicles. The Recreational Vehicle spots along the back stretch each cost $3,500 for a NASCAR weekend– less than half of the $8,000-per-spot in the new high-end Recreational Vehicle location.
The Las Vegas track is eliminating 15,000 seats above those two turns to clear space for the brand-new VIP hospitality and RV areas. The enhancements will be prepared for NASCAR weekend in March and cost in the low 6 figures, Powell stated.
Losing the 15,000 seats and replacing them with a new hospitality location and Recreational Vehicle location offers a better balance of seat options for fans, he stated.
Other improvements include boosting the product area by setting up a big tent location where fans can purchase NASCAR-licensed hats, shirts and coats instead of acquiring merchandise from trailers. Las Vegas Motor Speedway creates more NASCAR merchandise gross sales than other NASCAR track in the united state, Powell stated.
“It’s a more fan-friendly shopping experience,” Powell said of the enhanced sales area.
The speedway likewise wants to use additional area behind the grandstand to step up its efforts with interactive games to strengthen its appeal to young fans and families.
