The Grand Prix of America was suppose to be 3.2-mile street circuit by the Hudson River in New Jersey, with the Manhattan skyline in the backdrop creating a truly stunning location.

Giving Formula One fans in the United States of America two races was part of F1’s attempts to break the American market, a market dominated by NASCAR and Indy Cars.

The United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas has proved to be a success with fans flooding to the track and the new design being a favourite of drivers and fans alike.

But despite its success the New Jersey race dropped off of the Formula One provisional calendar in 2013 and 2014 and never resurfaced for 2015.

Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone was behind the plans so much that he even facilitated a loan to help with funding, but the plans still appeared to be shelved.

Race promoter Leo Hindery Jr held talks with Ecclestone over the weekend of the Canadian Grand Prix and Ecclestone has revealed that the race could be a future venue for F1.

‘He’d like to see that race happen. We’ll have a look and see what we can do for him.’ Ecclestone told Motorsport.com.
