    This whole Vegas venture is an abject failure, yes?

    So is the late start a novelty for the event or to allow European viewers to wake up early to watch it live?

    Europe and I assume they wanted it at night for the lights and spectacle so only way to get them and it not be 4am for Europe is this.

    Both for the European viewers and because the strip is still open during the day. They also thought it would still be hot in Vegas in November lol. But mostly Europe.

    I think I can last 50 laps.

    I'd assume it'll be standard for the Las Vegas races. Night race here just makes sense for entertainment sake. Works for Europe and Asia, and obviously America is used to #westcoastbestcoast start times, especially with a 1-2 hour event.

    I'm just bullshitting over here.

    But maybe they take that long with more drain covers delays or something else that they didn't figure out beforehand.
