Friday night is lining up to be a special night at the Las Vegas Grand Prix, as 20 cars will fight it out under the backdrop of the Strip for pole position.
Whilst in the UK, Formula 1 fans will have to set their alarms for the early hours of Saturday morning, the party atmosphere at the first grand prix to be held in the famous city for 40 years is likely to be electric.
Indeed, despite the two world championships already being sewn up quite some time ago, all drivers will be desperate to put on a show under the lights at the inaugural Las Vegas GP.
Jealousy from fans across the world who are watching the action from bed rather than being at the special event may just have waned slightly, with the cool temperatures that are threatening to make this the coldest F1 race in history.
Nevertheless, there has been some confusion about exactly which sessions are taking place when, particularly with a whole bundle of off the track events also taking place.
