Formula One to hit Sopranos country

Race with a view: The New Jersey F1 track could line up next to the Hudson RiverFormula One looks set to be heading to the home of the famous Italian mafia family The Sopranos of tv fame after the mayor of West New York claimed it was to be held in New Jersey in 2013 – six years after the last race in the United States where Lewis Hamilton won in Indianapolis.

Although the United States will feature next year in Austin Texas, the track in New Jersey is reported to be held on a four lane motorway alongside the Hudson River making it into what could be a remarkable event. The organisation however could be as demanding as the race itself with West New York attorney Joe DeMarco claiming:

“It will provide a very challenging course, they compare it to Spa in Belgium but it will have the feel of Monaco.”

Meanwhile, mayor Felix Roque believe the event will boost the entire area.

“It’s incredible. This is going to be an economic boom for this whole region.”

The news suggests that Bernie Ecclestone will continue to look for new tracks each season to keep the Formula One season fresh but it also spells good news for the United States who have been unable to host a race since 2007.

Whilst Tony Soprano is long gone there will certainly be an element to the race that shall attract those who are not only fans of Formula One but perhaps those of the famous tv series too.
