Grand Prix of America

The ultimate global marquee in auto sports is the Formula One series and this past July, F1 Chief Bernie Ecclestone confirmed that New Jersey will be on the 2013 Grand Prix schedule.

Coined the Grand Prix of America, it will be a new Formula One World Championship race taking place in June 2013 and beyond. The race will be held on a yet-to-be-constructed 3.2-mile street circuit through the New Jersey towns of West New York and Weehawken, along the Weehawken Port Imperial. The circuit offers the New York City skyline as a panoramic backdrop.

In celebration of this announcement Red Bull Racing’s show car recently starred in an amazing video where former F1 driver David Coulthard pilots the 2011 Championship-winning RB7 through Liberty State Park showing off the spectacular views of the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty.  We will let the video do the talking from here.
