Official confirms plans for New Jersey GP

Bernie Ecclestone is set to get his wish to stage a race in the New York City area after an official confirmed plans for a New Jersey GP in 2013.

The United States will host its first F1 race since 2007 next year when the Circuit of the Americas in Austin stages its maiden race. However, F1 supremo Eccleston has long advocated for a race to be staged on the Northeast megalopolis of the US and his dream will be realized in two years after a consortium of investors and city and state governments reached a deal.

The race will run on the Hudson River shoreline just minutes from New York City and will take place on a four-lane highway, two lanes in each direction

According to West New York mayor Felix Roque, the grand prix will give the area a massive financial boost.

"This is going to be an economic boom for this whole region. While political and public servants talk about creating jobs, the governor has put the pedal to the metal and delivered," Roque told Reuters.

"This is the top of the line in motor racing, it's incredible."

New Jersey governor Chris Christie is set to announce the deal in Weehawken, New Jersey, on Tuesday.

Joe DeMarco, an attorney with West New York, says it will be a long-term project.

"It will provide a very challenging course - they compare it to Spa in Belgium, but will have the feel of Monaco," said DeMarco.

He added: "It has been contemplated to at least run for ten years but there are options and so on depending on the success of it. Hopefully it will be a long term event, embraced by residents and the community."

Here's the plan for the track. I don't know how investors can make money with Bernie's sanctioning fees without government subsidies, but here's hoping for the best!
