New Jersey Eyes Bid For F1

New Jersey is often the butt of most state-related jokes.  And, to be fair, the reputation isn't without its truths. NJ is represented nationwide by the collective casts of The Jersey Shore & Real Housewives, making it more than difficult not to crack a joke or two.

FORMULA1

New Jersey is often the butt of most state-related jokes. And, to be fair, the reputation isn't without its truths. NJ is represented nationwide by the collective casts of The Jersey Shore & Real Housewives, making it more than difficult not to crack a joke or two (Even for us native Jersians.. or is Jersey-ites? Whatever we're called).

One thing Jersey-related that's no joking matter though, is Leo Hindrey Jr.'s (former YES Network CEO) investment group making plans with the mayors of Weehawken and West New York to bring Formula 1 racing into New Jersey. The Bid, if accepted could bring an F1 event along the Hudson River as early as 2013.

Earlier this month the Wall Street Journal reported that the race would run on existing streets in these cities, with New York as the backdrop. The event would put the region in the company of Monaco, Montreal, Singapore and Shanghai, all of which host annual F1 events.

If approved, the proposed race would be a second U.S. event for F1, which has announced an annual race in Austin, Texas, starting next year. World Class Driving will be making their presence known at F1 in Austin, but nothing would make us more proud than to see it land in our home state.

So New Jersey, we say to you: Keep your head held high. Despite your reputation as the orange-tanned, fist pumping bar hopper, we know deep down you've got the appeal to bring in one of the world's most exciting race events. Giddy-up!
