Article by Christian Andrei, on October 24, 2011

In 2013, Formula One will take place in the Greater New York. Sources said that an announcement will be issued next this to confirm that the Formula One Grand Prix of America is scheduled for June 2013 on a road course in Weehawken and West New York along the Hudson River. This means that the race will be set against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.

The London-based racing circuit is the most popular form of international motorsport. Formula will hold a press conference this Tuesday at Port Imperial in Weehawken. We first received details about the proposed race in August.

A joint statement has been released by the mayors of Weehawken and West New York to say that they have been meeting with several investors led by Leo Hindery, Jr., a former chief executive of the YES Network, for the race to be in New Jersey. The most advanced open-wheel cars in the world will participate in Formula One, whose calendar has 19 events in locations like Monte Carlo, Shanghai and Sao Paulo.

The last time that the event was in Europe was in 2007 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In May 2010, F1 confirmed its comeback to the U.S. A $250 million racetrack has been built in Austin, Texas, purposely for the Formula One Grand Prix of America in November 2012. The sources added that the Grand Prix in New Jersey will be the second U.S. race on the 2013 calendar. [source: WSJ]
