New Jersey GP Postponed

The inaugural Grand Prix of America race in Northern New Jersey will be postponed one year until 2014, sources have confirmed to SPEED.com.

Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone and event organizers will make the announcement on Friday, sources said.

The race, scheduled for June 16, 2013, will be pushed back a year in order for track organizers to finish the permitting process needed to complete the 3.2-mile road course along the Hudson River in Weehawken and West New York, N.J.

Among other things, track officials are waiting approval from Corps of Engineers to take control of property along the Hudson River where grandstands will be erected.

The three-day event is expected to attract more than 100,000 race fans and pump in more than $100 million to the local economy.

Last month, the New Jersey event was released on the official 2013 Formula One calendar, one of 20 races in 19 countries.
