While the New Jersey Grand Prix had been rumored for some time, it always seems like something of a boondoggle that would never actually happen. However, the race is taking its first step towards legitimacy on June 11th when the race promoters have invited Sebastian Vettel to drive the proposed track in an Infiniti IPL G37 CoupeInfiniti IPL G CoupéJapan, 2011 > present.
Vettel will be the first Formula 1 driver to drive the proposed street course in Weehawken, New Jersey, just across the Hudson river from Manhattan. After Vettel drives the track, there will be a press conference at 2:30pm local time with him, race promoter Leo Hindery, and InfinitiInfinitiJapan, 1989 > present Marketing Director Keith St. Clair.
Race promoter Hindry is a sports and racing fan. After making his fortune by selling a cable television company to 1999, Hindrey became CEO for the YES Network that is the cable television channel for the New York Yankees baseball team. He also attempted to buy the Chicago Cubs baseball team in 1999 but did not submit the winning bid.
Hindery has raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans five times and won in 2005 in the GT2 class in the Alex Job Racing Team Porsche 911 GT3 RSRPorsche 911 GT3 RSRGermany, 2004 > present. His co-drivers were current PorschePorscheGermany, 1931 > present factory drivers Mike Rockenfeller and Marc Lieb.
The New Jersey GP still has an air of uncertainty about it, but perhaps this press conference will clarify some questions about the race. While the race is taking place in America's highest population center, Formula 1 street circuits are notoriously bad. Although, anything is a step up from the Ceasars Palace Grand Prix of 1982 when Formula 1 raced in the parking lot of the Ceasars Palace Casino in Las Vegas.
