Powerboat racing will make its return to the long shuddered Miami Marine Stadium April 21/22 and for the first time since 1992.
The Virginia Key Advisory Board voted in favor of the Miami P1 Grand Prix of the Sea that will take place in the basin in front of the Stadium.
Public Parking will be available in the lot West of the Stadium while spectator and vendor tents will be located on the East of the Stadium.
The Miami Marine Stadium has been abandoned since 1992 since Hurricane Andrew when the City of Miami deemed it unsafe. A construction report has started last year by R.J. Heisenbottle Architects with a probable construction cost of $40,323,361 to restore the stadium.
The basin and land outside the stadium have been used in recents years for triathlon events and the Miami International Boat Show.
