Hudson County grand prix back on; timetable uncertain

HUDSON COUNTY – The chief promoter of the Grand Prix of America, a Formula 1 auto race on the Hudson County waterfront that has been in limbo for the past two years, signed a 15-year contract with the international racing circuit’s CEO this week, according to multiple reports. The contract all but solidifies that the race will take place, though a timeline has not been set.

Originally, the race was set to occur this summer in West New York and Weehawken. Now it may occur next summer.

Wayne Hasenbalg, the CEO of Sports & Exposition Authority, told NJ Biz that the race could potentially be run within a year.

Hasenbalg said that the various bodies which had been set up to bring the race to New Jersey will now be reconvened after an indefinite hiatus.

"Just like the Super Bowl, there's going to be a huge mass transit planning component to this," Hasenbalg told NJ Biz.– Dean DeChiaro

Send photos to ‘Reporter on Vacation’

If you’re going on vacation or just hanging out locally, take a photo with any Hudson Reporter newspaper, including the Bayonne Community News, and send it to us! We’d love to print it and show your neighbors where you went.

Visiting relatives in the next town? Hanging out down the Shore? Riding a camel in the desert? They’re all worthy photos!

Just follow these easy instructions:

You can send it by e-mail or regular mail. To send by e-mail, send it as a .jpg attachment to editorial@hudsonreporter.com and always put REPORTER ON VACATION in the subject head. For regular mail, send to REPORTER ON VACATION, Hudson Reporter, 1400 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ, 07030.

NOTE: Please do not send your only copy of the photo, as things do get lost in the mail. Include a short description of the people in the photo, towns where they live, and where the photo was taken, so we can write a caption from your information. Include a phone number or e-mail address in case we need more information.

Only one to two photos per trip please. Photos will not be returned.

If you have questions, or if you sent a photo and aren’t sure we ever received it, e-mail editorial@hudsonreporter.com and put REPORTER ON VACATION in the subject head.

We look forward to seeing where you went on vacation!
