New Jersey F1 2013 street track plan

Plans for the street track in New Jersey which will host America’s second F1 race on the 2013 F1 calendar have been revealed online.

The design by Hermann Tilke confirm the proposed 5.15km (3.2-mile) layout that was revealed when the race was announced last October.

The clockwise layout will have its start/finish line next to the ferry terminal by the Hudson River.

The track will cross a bridge over a railway after which the cars’ passage through a series of natural curves will be slowed by the addition of a chicane.

The final part of the lap include a long, high-speed stretch from the turn 17 hairpin to a pair of 90-degree turns which return the cars to the start/finish straight and pit complex.

You can view the plans in full here.

    This is the 1st place I’ve been to where most have been down on this track.

    On all the other message boards, forums & chat rooms i’ve been to pretty much everyone has been raving about how great this track looks & how great the location is.

    As to where it is, Most the F1 teams have been asking Bernie to get a race in or near New York for a long time, Eddie Jordan spoke about that on the BBC when this track was 1st announced last year.

    Maybe im not reading it correctly, but it appears there are no grandstands across from the pits or start/finish line. Will be terrible atmosphere for the race winner to take the chequered flag in front of no one, and this track looks like the only time you will see the cars for more then a second is when they are in the pits. I hope the podium is somewhere sensible.

    Looks like a great track for TV, but terrible for watching live trackside, you may see a car for .2 sec per lap if your lucky.

      If you can zoom in a little, you can read “Proposed Temp. Platform” on either side of the ferry docks. I assume they are probably going to tie some barges to the sea-wall and put up some grandstands.
