A first look at the newest F1 race to be hosted in the US
New Jersey has become the latest venue to confirm a Formula 1 race in the future, announcing a 10-year deal yesterday.
The race will be promoted as the Grand Prix of America, as opposed to the United States Grand Prix, which will be held in Austin, Texas from next year.
The Port Imperial-based circuit features an elevation change of approx. 150ft, as well as running through two parks and having the Hudson river and Manhattan area as a backdrop.
The uphill section of the track is causing the most interest, with several fast sweeping corners and plenty of elevation changes.
This race will commence in 2013, meaning that the F1 calendar could possibly expand to 21 races – 22 when Russia joins a year later.
This is the best visualisation of the track as of yet:
