NEW JERSEY: Formula One could have two Grand Prix in the US by 2013 if new plans for a race in New Jersey come to completion. The Wall Street Journal reports that mayors of New Jersey townships Weehawken and West New York are in talks with private investors to put together an event by 2013. The proposed layout would be a street circuit on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River with the New York skyline as a backdrop. The race would run alongside the US Grand Prix in Austin which will hold its inaugural race next year.
