Reportedly, Formula One is threatening to block view of the Las Vegas race course unless clubs pay fees

Las Vegas Review Journal in March:

Fans hoping to catch a peek of the Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix from the Strip sidewalks might be out of luck.

The sidewalks that line resorts on Las Vegas Boulevard will be open to foot traffic during the race, but the barriers that will be installed will all but eliminate the view for race weekend from Nov. 16 to 18.

NY Post today:

Sources also claim that salespeople . . . have even threatened that lights will be shined toward the viewing areas of unlicensed venues, blinding guests trying to get a peek at the nighttime race.
