There is talk of a Grand Prix in NJ with Manhattan as a backdrop.

Does anybody know where the track would be? Meadowlands, IZOD around there?

I'm mildly annoyed that it's in NJ, but just like the football teams they're titling it the NEW YORK blank.

I love F1, although a lot of the teams are dropping out due tot he costs. Lot of big money follows F1 racing, it could be a tourism boon if handled right. I'd just like to see as much of the money come to NJ as possible.

It seems like more meaningless chatter from Ecclestone. If the USGP returned, there would be a lot of venues in line to host it. The US does not need to build a new track like Russia, China, Bahrain, etc. did to host F1 races.

Me too, I watch every race and I would definitely try to attend the race. This sounds like a great opportunity for our area. Hopefully it will happen

F-1 Failed at one of the best venues in the USA (Indianapolis). Just not enough excitement in F1 for American race fans.
As someone else pointed out costs are out of site for a F1 team and as a result very few teams have a legit chance to compete.

I used to be a big Nascar fan but more and more Nascar is becoming like F1, only a couple of teams have a shot at the championship so it's the same team winning year after year.

Baseball is more competitive after all every once in a while the Yankees don't win the World Series.

I believe this will bring tourism dollars into NJ. F1 racing does not bother me, but Nascar better not think about coming here.
