Caesar's Palace was a 2.27-mile temporary circuit set up in the parking lot of Caesar's Palace casino in Las Vegas, NV, for Formula 1 racing in 1981-1982. A 1.125-mile modification of this circuit (with the hairpin turns removed) was used by CART in 1983-1984.

Often described as little more than a go-kart track with concrete barriers substituted for straw bales, the best that can be said is that it wasn't as bad as everyone was expecting. The layout was featureless and lacked reference points, but the surface was wide and smooth, the corners were not too tight and there were passing opportunities. However, spectators failed to materialise, local businesses did not get the boost they were hoping for, the regular Las Vegas clientele found it all a noisy inconvenience, and motor racing moved on. The site is now occupied by a shopping mall, which, for once, is probably no loss.
