Online PR News – 05-December-2012 – Rotterdam – F1 Plus, December 04, 2012/ Press Release/- The inaugural American Grand Prix that is scheduled to be happening in New Jersey on June 2013 will be expected to take place on 2014.

According to recent Jersey Journal, the most coveted car racing competition that is expected to be happening on June 16 will be rescheduled for 2014. This has been highlighted by the rising doubts on the progress of the preparation on the said event.

With issues on infrastructure at Port Imperial in New Jersey on the bank of Hudson River and with Manhattan as backdrop, the Grand race that is supposed to take place in June 16 next year has been hold for a year.

Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One commercial ring-master said, “It will not push through next year. If they are ready with the agreement and we are satisfied, the next thing to watch out is, would they be ready to carry the work in just six months? Winter is hard in New York and it is definitely not good for Grand Prix .”

He also added, “Now there is a vacant slot for Formula 1’s next year’s 20-race calendar. The Turkish Grand Prix could be a temporary replacement or it could be just a total of 19 races.”3

Earlier the Jersey Journal released a report that the most prestigious car race would not happen in June as planned.

Grand Prix of America promoter Leo Hindery Junior said, “We are scheduled to be racing at Port Imperial, but unfortunately it will not take place. We still remain positive and we promise that New Jersey and the towns of Weehawken and West New York and the rest of F1’s global fans would have a great experience the time it happens. We are 100% committed that this will take place at Port Imperial and the race won’t have any other partner but the CEO of Formula One, Bernie Ecclestone.”

Regrettably, FORMULA 1, the most prestigious car racing competition won’t be happening as scheduled due to some problems in building the facilities. There is a need for additional time to finish the development of complex Hudson Riverfront facilities, paddock garage and finishing of the second pits.
