Now that it’s official and Formula One racing is definitely coming to New Jersey in 2013, buzz is starting to happen over where the race will be and what the course looks like. Jalopnik.com is a car blog that is part of the Gawker Media franchise and they’ve been writing about F1 returning to America for a few months now.  They covered the Austin racetrack which will host its first race in November 2012. Now, presumably since they are located in New York, they’ve crossed the Hudson to check out the course in Weehawken and West New York.

If you read the comments on Jalopnik’s coverage of Formula One coming to New Jersey, you’ll see this gem by jswilson64: “Since this is in New Jersey, I fully expect the left turns to be of the Jughandle variety.”

Nice one.
