America is finally back in the F1 saddle with the U.S. Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. But that's the only place in the U.S. that could have an F1 race soon--New Jersey's Port Imperial Street Circuit is still on the table.
Placed as close to New York City as is practically feasible, the proposed New Jersey street circuit could potentially draw the largest crowds of any race on the F1 calendar. On the other hand, it could also be a logistical nightmare for teams, fans, and residents of the cities to be overtaken.
Whatever happens with the New Jersey race, however, at least we have this video, showing a lap of the 3.2-mile course as it would run around premises of Weehawken and West New York, New Jersey. It's not the first such video, but it does show how un-ready the proposed path of the circuit still is.
Looks like fun--though we're not sure how the drivers will welcome the long, low stone wall along the right edge of the start of the course or the many trees, bollards, and tight chicanes. If the New Jersey event ends up coming together, it could come as soon as the 2014 season. Turbo F1 cars roaring around within earshot of NYC? Count us in.
