New Jersey Grand Prix: We are back under construction

Published

on

The New Jersey F1 Grand Prix Promoter Leo Hindery says that, the race will back on track in 2014 Formula 1 season. Primarily it’s scheduled on debut this season, but the event missing due to local and federal approvals that made it tricky to have all the capitalization in place.

Hindery also welcomed F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone’s decision – “made absolutely the right decision” in removing the race from the schedule for the current season.

“We are back under construction. We have the consents in place that we didn’t have last fall, and we will quite comfortably put the race on, now probably in the mid-year of 2014 with [F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone’s] support.” Hindery told sports business daily.

“There are two civil engineering pieces that still need attention. One is the obvious one in that the course itself has to be paved to take out any crowns in the roadway, make it perfectly flat, and then [FIA F1 Race Dir] Charlie Whiting and his associates demand a quality of asphalt paving that’s very, very high end.”

“We are going to put some, like a pontoon, floats where some of the ferries that will serve the race will dock. We have about 39 ferries that will be part of the transportation scheme. And we will do some work over the summer to make the landing area for the ferries a little larger and that will include some stands right on the river’s edge.” Hindery added.
