The Formula 1 Grand Prix, which is traditionally known for the world famous race in Monaco, is coming to New Jersey in 2013. The plan calls for the 3.2 mile track to be built on the public streets of West New York and Weehauken providing priceless views of the New York City skyline for 25,000 fans expected to attend.
Just to recap, F1 race cars will be ripping down the public streets of West New York and Weehauken at 200+ MPH and Hoboken will be turned into a world-class party location for three days, spread the damn word!
Defending F1 champion Sebastian Vettele and David Coulthard – two-time Grand Prix of Monaco Winner held a press event at Port Imperial in June and took several reporters, and the mayors of both Weehawken and West New York, on a 90 MPH tour of the proposed race track that includes stretches of River Road past the Port Imperial ferry terminal, where the race garage and pit area are now under construction, and part of Boulevard East atop the Palisades.
The official dates have no yet been released but it’s never too soon to start a Facebook event. We are going to be the ring leaders of a three-day party in Hoboken so make sure you RSVP now to be the first to hear the details.
