LAS VEGAS, Aug. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ellis Island Hotel & Casino announces its partnership as an official venue of the Las Vegas Strip Circuit™ for the FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN SILVER LAS VEGAS GRAND PRIX 2023. The local casino is thrilled to announce TURN 4 at Ellis Island Casino with viewing and hotel packages for the upcoming race.

Positioned at Turn 4, Ellis Island Hotel & Casino is a prime location for staying, viewing and enjoying the festivities taking place Nov. 16, 17 and 18, 2023, in Las Vegas.

Ellis Island Hotel & Casino is not only an official venue of the Las Vegas Strip Circuit™, but the award-winning destination is also the closest hotel-casino to the Las Vegas Grand Prix Paddock Building on Koval Lane and is positioned overlooking Turn 4 of the track.
