New Jersey Grand Prix will make splash in 2013
Wednesday 26 October 2011
A Formula One race will be held in 2013 along the Hudson River just minutes from New York City, a New Jersey official said yesterday.
Mayor Felix Roque said the Grand Prix will run through the town of West New York and neighbouring Weehawken. Roque called the race the "second miracle on the Hudson", referring to the 2009 landing of a plane in which all passengers and crew survived.
The US has not hosted a Formula One race since 2007 in Indianapolis. A race is also scheduled for Austin, Texas, next year.
