Officials announce 2013 Formula 1 race set for NJ

QuoteQuote:
The 3.2-mile course will run along the river through the towns of Weehawken and West New York, then climb uphill before looping back around in front of the ferry terminal. It features one hairpin turn and several other 90-degree turns. Promoters estimated drivers will reach speeds up to 200 miles per hour on the course's straightaways and about 60 to 80 mph on the turns.

Steve Matchett, a commentator on Formula One races for the SPEED network, called the course layout and views "absolutely staggering" and compared it to the famed Monte Carlo course for its proximity to water and its steep climb.

Congrats to NJ.
I wonder who the color commentators will be. I watched some of the Australian Super Car racing recently on SPEED. They sent Mike Joy and DW, good grief I can't take it.

NJ Gov Christie also said he is interested in bringing NASCAR to the track.

As Autoweek first revealed on Oct. 21, Formula One is scheduled to race in New Jersey, within sight of New York City, in June 2013. A press conference was held on Tuesday afternoon, where race officials and government officials--including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie--confirmed the race, named the Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial.

Christie said organizers expect the three-day event will bring 100,000 fans a day to the venue. He pledged to F1 executives that placing a race in New Jersey, on a 10-year contract, will be "one of the best decisions you ever made." Christie also said he is interested in bringing NASCAR to the track.

The executive chairman of the event is Leo Hindery Jr., a former gentleman sports-car racer who is the former chairman of the YES cable network. Hindery is married to Patti Wheeler, a Speed TV executive and the daughter of former Speedway Motorsports Inc. and Charlotte Motor Speedway executive H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler--who happens to be a "race adviser" for the New Jersey F1 race.
