With Formula One’s 2011 champion David Coulthard behind the wheel of the 1000 horse power RB7 Red Bull Racing completed their tour of New Jersey and New York City.
It all started at Liberty State Park offering spectacular views of the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Then the RB7 moved to West New York and Weehawken, New Jersey which will be home of the much anticipated Grand Prix of America Formula 1 race in June 2013. It must have been quite a sight to see a F-1 car ripping down the local street at nearly 200 mph. To wrap things up Coulthard flew through the Lincoln Tunnel at over 200 mph into New York City.
Save the date, the Grand Prix of American is coming June 2013 to Weehawken and West New York, NJ and it will be an event that New Jersey and New York City never forget.

New Jersey will stage Formula One’s inaugural Grand Prix of America in 2013, and Red Bull took its RB7 car over to the state of New York one year early to test drive the streets.
Former F1 driver David Coulthard was behind the wheel, causing a stir as he sped through Liberty State Park.
While the Hudson River flowed above, Coulthard tore through the Lincoln Tunnel below at speeds of up to 190 miles per hour.
Coulthard burns rubber, while the Statue of Liberty can be seen poking through the thick cloud of smoke.
Next year’s grand prix will run through the New Jersey township of Weehawken, where Coulthard took the RB7 to get a closer look at what drivers can expect.
