Miami International Autodrome: Miami Grand Prix track guide, length, location, records, weather & more

All you need to know about the Miami International Autodrome, host track of the Miami Grand Prix, including track length, location, records, weather & more.

The 2024 Miami Grand Prix marks the third edition of the event hosted at Miami International Autodrome, now two years on from the inaugural F1 race in South Florida.

The track is in year three of a 10-year contract agreement to host the grand prix.

Putting aside the fact a large part of the track is a car park for most of the year, race organizers have gone all out to make the Miami Grand Prix a glamourous affair. 

From reams of VIP guests, a paddock on an American football field, a beach club and a fake marina filled with yachts, the Miami International Autodrome is the place to see and be seen when F1 comes to town. 

As for the action on the track, the street-style circuit features unforgiving barriers lining sections of a track made up of several long straights, 19 corners and three DRS zone.

The layout has yet to produce a race worthy of the top class facilities surrounding it with drivers having gripes about the surface and certain sections.

Where is Miami International Autodrome?

Miami International Autodrome is located in Miami Gardens, Florida, a suburb of Miami.

The track is located on the private grounds of Hard Rock Stadium, the home field of the NFL's Miami Dolphins.

The city of Miami originally put forward several proposals before settling on the current site with a race around PortMiami and the downtown area initially proposed. 

When those two suggestions were rejected, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross suggested staging a grand prix around Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. 

When was Miami International Autodrome built?

Work began on converting the ground around Hard Rock Stadium in April 2021, with the first F1 race taking place on May 8, 2022.

As a temporary circuit, the majority of the track and facilities are only put in place a few weeks before the race weekend.
