In a world filled with left-hand turns, the good ‘ol U.S. of A. has never been too fond of Formula 1 racing series. Although, looking back through history we have had some of the most prolific racers in history to represent states (Phil Hill, Eddie Cheever, Richie Ginther, etc.).
But now, as the US Grand Prix series looks to make a return back to the states for the first time in a number of years, F1 head honcho Bernie Ecclestone says that the race originally slated to take place in New Jersey on June 16th of next year, has been pushed back at least a year until 2014.
According to the Associated Press, the race was postponed even further because organizers “didn’t quite know what they were doing.”
The complete ignorance presented by the US F1 organizers stemmed from the lack of additional financing required in order to make the US Grand Prix series into a reality. With that, we assume the race will be coming stateside by at least 2014, if not later.
