    Debut in the Sunshine state

    This weekend's race is going to be huge both from a sporting and commercial perspective.

    And to pay homage to the Sunshine State's gorgeous blue costal waters and beaches, the track will feature fake marina and a gondola.

    They've even craned a handful of super-yachts into place with sparkly blue tinfoil placed around their hulls to give it the Miami feel.
