The Miami Grand Prix will take place as planned at the Hard Rock Stadium site in Miami Gardens in May.
A judge was being asked to grant a special hearing that would block the race from happening, but said today that “any potential harm is avoidable” in terms of hearing damage.
The judge explained, “The evidence proffered so far regarding the potential hearing loss is, in my view, very highly speculative. It is not based on any current Formula 1 noise information, and the most recent affidavit from overnight does not take into consideration the south wall [a noise barrier previously erected at the venue].”
Sound monitoring will be carried out by the stadium, as part of its obligations to the city.
🚨 | Following the Miami residents’ lawsuit against the first Miami Grand Prix, a South Florida judge has dismissed the protest, and deemed that the race will go ahead as planned.
Attorneys for the event argued that there is ‘no evidence’ of potential hearing loss and injury.
