Previous reports from the Wall Street Journal are true: Bernie Ecclestone and many F1 fans will get their wish of an F1 race in the shadow of Manhattan’s skyline. Come June of 2013 (and for at least 10 years), the United States will be hosting not one, but two Grands Prix. Besides the sophomore race at the purpose-built Circuit of the Americas in Austin, a street circuit will be constructed along the Hudson River in Weehawken and West New York.
Formula One Management, the governor of New Jersey and other officials made an announcement at Port Imperial today of the Grand Prix of America. This followed up on a joint statement by the mayors of Weehawken and West New York regarding an agreement with Leo Hindery, Jr., about this race in New Jersey.
We’ll have more information regarding a potential second US F1 race as it becomes available.
