Video: Go onboard for a lap of the new Las Vegas circuit!

Check out this fan-created onboard lap of the new Las Vegas circuit, which will incorporate part of the famous Strip into its layout.

A fan-generated modification for the Assetto Corsa racing platform has offered the first look at an onboard lap of the new circuit in Las Vegas ahead of its debut on the calendar in 2023.

Earlier this week, Formula 1 confirmed that the sport will return to the city for the first time since 1982 on a street track incorporating part of the Las Vegas Strip from Sands Avenue to Tropicana Avenue.

The circuit will be 6.12-kilometres in length, taking in landmarks such as the MSG Sphere arena, Paris Las Vegas resort and the Caesars Palace hotel (whose car park hosted the infamous 1982 event).

A user of Assetto Corsa, under the handle Kronos, has released the first iteration of the track onto the popular sim racing platform.

An onboard video of the circuit has been provided which, although still a work in progress, showcases the layout with accuracy to the plans released by F1.

"I recommend using this track at night, as you then can't see all of the missing buildings I haven't added in yet," it was written in the track download description on RaceDepartment.

"​​As details on the track are slim at the moment, I had to guess a pit lane position and start line. They're probably wrong, but they'll be updated when more info comes out.

"Other than that, the track layout matched the one released by F1!"

Check out the video below!
