Off the back of a commercially successful Miami Grand Prix, F1 has now announced that F1 Arcade is coming to America.
The first stateside F1 Arcade venue will open ahead of the 2024 F1 season at Boston Seaport, bringing the action to the east coast of the United States.
It will be the first venue in the USA, as part of plans to establish 20 further US locations in the next five years.
The Boston venue will boast decor including circuit-inspired ceiling chandeliers and race telemetry wall neons. Private rooms can also be combined to include up to 200 guests.
The game in the Arcade features RFactor2 and allows guests to choose through a variety of modes, competing in one-on-ones or in teams. Different modes are available for all ages and abilities, and more than 60 simulators have been designed for the venue.
F1 were keen to play up the quality of the dining experience in their announcement on Formula1.com, claiming: "Multi-award-winning mixologist Peter Vestinos will deliver a carefully crafted drinks menu featuring Champagne cocktails, local craft beers and an imaginative non-alcoholic category.
"And the globally inspired food menu will be developed by an accomplished chef team, focused on using fresh, local ingredients from a scratch kitchen with refined hero dishes such as Seabass Ceviche and Wagyu Beef Burgers."
It's clear that there will be no expenses spared for F1 Arcade's debut across the Atlantic, although fans will have to wait for just under a year to get their first taste of the action.
