Race Down to Florida for the Formula One

After an incredibly successful inaugural year, the Formula One  Miami Grand Prix is back! From May 5th -7th, thousands of Formula One fans and enthusiasts will flock down to  Miami to see the fifth race of the international Grand Prix season. The Miami race takes place at the International Autodrome at the Hard Rock Stadium, just 11 miles from Dharma Homes Suites property at Sheridan Ocean Club. The cost of tickets can be quite expensive,  but you don’t have to go to the race to take part in the fun. We found race week activities near our properties that work for every budget.

Watch all the races 

Here is the schedule for all the races leading up to the big day. Walk around the top deck at the Hard Rock Stadium and see every corner of the 3.36-mile, 19-turn track, or just stay in your seat and witness these open-wheel, open-cockpit, single-seat racing cars whizzing by you at nearly 200 miles per hour.
