Bernie Ecclestone Says New Jersey Grand Prix is Not Dead Yet
This put serious doubt behind it ever taking place, yet Bernie Ecclestone is confident that the GP will take place in 2014. "I remain totally committed to the Port Imperial race and its unique location and attributes, and we will continue to work closely together to realise our dream in 2014,” he said.
The race promoter, Leo Hindery Jr. said that the decision to postpone the GP for now was taken as the very high standards set for the construction and organization of the various facilities and services could not be met, and the quality of the final venue didn`t have to suffer as a result.
Hindrey said: "We are going to be racing at Port Imperial, unfortunately just not as soon as we hoped and expected [. . .] We remain 100 per cent committed to the Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial, and the race could have no better partner and friend than the CEO of Formula 1, Bernie Ecclestone. We benefit greatly from his experience and counsel and from his support."
