I couldn't be more excited for this. I love Formula 1, but its hard/annoying/difficult to watch on this side of the pond. Coverage on networks usually being ignored in lieu of OTHER racing series'...
Its being reported that they have signed a 10 year deal with Formula 1 to host the Grand Prix of America near Weehawken, NJ along the Hudson. This. Is. Awesome.
From the BBC article:
"The race will run on existing roads through Port Imperial and at the top of the Palisades in Weehawken and West New York.
He said "up to 100,000 people" were expected to attend across practice, qualifying and race day.
West New York attorney Joe DeMarco said: "It will provide a very challenging course.
"They compare it to Spa in Belgium but it will have the feel of Monaco."
