Epic Scenes as Formula 1 Car Drives Through Vegas Casino
Table Of Contents
A Formula 1 race car burning rubber around the gaming floor would have been a first for pretty much everyone at Wynn Las Vegas last night.
As promotion for the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix begins to ramp up. Guests of the casino, which hosts the record-breaking WPT World Championship this December, were stunned to see an Oracle Red Bull Racing car register some laps inside the building
Roaring sounds of the engine filled the room, which even managed to turn the heads of many gaming enthusiasts away from their tables. And then outside, passersby were treated to more high octane action as the supercars revved up and down the strip.
It was just a quick spectacle of things to come as the race track for the Las Vegas F1 stop will weave in and around all of the famous landmarks of Sin City.

Oracle Red Bull Racing and PokerStars
The Formula 1 car in the video belongs to Oracle Red Bull Racing, who entered a partnership with online poker giant PokerStars in 2022. From the brands working together, the much coveted Red Spade Pass was created, which awards its winner a fantastic package including exclusive access to the ultimate Formula 1 experience.
Some lucky PokerStars players have already been whisked off to the Monte Carlo and Silverstone Grand Prixes, while Sweden's Viktor Wessman awaits his trip to the Sao Paulo Grand Prix this weekend.
Wessman bagged a Red Spade Pass in the summer at EPT Barcelona. In the Platinum Pass Mystery Bounty, Wessman secured the once in a lifetime trip after pulling the much sought after Red Spade Pass envelope, following him knocking out a player in the event.
In the same tournament, Yamato Nakai was the fortunate player to get their hands on the Platinum Pass. In case you missed it, PokerStars is heading back to the Bahamas this January for the long-awaited second edition of the Poker Players Championship, which runs alongside the returning PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
Others joining Nakai in Nassau will be Hannes Jeschka and Iosef Spulber, who won their platinum passes last month at EPT London. Jeschka, like Nakai, pulled the platinum pass in the £3,000 Mystery Bounty while Spulber flipped his way to the PSPC.
