Report: NJ Formula One Race Postponed
A Formula One race originally planned for next year in New Jersey is expected to be postponed.
Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner tells The Jersey Journal that the race is being rescheduled for 2014.
The newspaper says Turner and another unnamed mayor claim Formula 1 promoters are behind on road repairs and permits.
Formula 1 headquarters did not respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment.
A spokesman for New Jersey race promoter Leo Hindery Jr. also declined to comment on the report.
The inaugural 3.2-mile Grand Prix of America is to run along the Hudson River through the towns of Weehawken and West New York, N.J.
It was listed on the FIA calendar for June 16, 2013, with an asterisk next to it, indicating “to be confirmed.”
