Officials from the American state of New Jersey have announced that the city, west of New York, will play host to a second Grand Prix in America from 2013. The deal is for ten years.
Running alongside the Hudson River, the circuit will have New York City’s skyscrapers as a stunning backdrop for the Grand Prix.
The United States last played host to a Formula 1 Grand Prix in 2007 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Prior to this, the country held street circuit events at Long Beach, Detroit, Dallas and Phoenix (pictured top, L-R), with mixed success.
It will be the first time that the country has held two races back since 1984, when street races were held at Detroit and Dallas.
