Mar.8 (GMM) New Jersey is back on track for a grand prix in 2014, promoter Leo Hindery has announced.
The Manhattan-skyline street race was due to make its debut on this year's calendar, but the organisers fell behind on road repairs and obtaining event permits.Hindery told Sports Business Daily: "I think that Bernie (Ecclestone) made absolutely the right decision (to delay)."But he added: "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 (Ecclestone's) support."F1 chief executive Ecclestone, however, indicated that New Jersey's problems were not only to do with approvals, or the repair and asphalting of the roads."It's a problem for the people that started this, and I think it's basically a financial problem," he said.
