The Miami International Speedway is taking shape in Miami Gardens, Florida ahead of this spring’s Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix, and organizers have been quick to show off the progress on social media.

The inaugural Miami F1 Grand Prix will be a three-day event, May 6-8, 2022, at Miami Gardens around Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins soccer team. Images released by the Miami team show that this track will be anything but a parking lot, even though part of the track is literally carved into parking areas near the stadium.

According to the official Formula 1 website, the race will feature “the first circuit designed by and with the support of Formula 1. It will be a dynamic and flowing track which will feature the latest 2022 cars to be tested on the first half of the calendar. “

The circuit will be 3.36 miles (5.41 km) long with 19 corners, three straights, three DRS (Drag Reduction System) zones and the cars in the longest straight are expected to reach just a tick below 200 mph (320 km/h).

Miami and Formula 1 have a 10-year contract to race in South Florida.

The last major street race in Miami was the Formula E Miami ePrix in 2015. That race, however, was held downtown.
