Proposed F1 Circuit for 2013 Formula 1 Grand Prix

By: Jake

Below is the proposed 2013 New Jersey Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit spanning through Weehawken, NJ; not Jersey City as previously speculated. The event organizers should also host a Time Attack in conjunction with the F1 competition like an opening band for The Beatles. This is not a entirely unique concept. In 2008 the Long Beach Indy Grand Prix hosted a Time Attack in the streets of the great California city. There are many people who would jump at this once in a lifetime opportunity to run a city circuit with a NYC skyline back drop.

Spotted: Team Polizei's M5 Interceptor Goes Sleeper

By: Jake

Hamfist Racing spies Team Polizei's M5 Interceptor: Alexander Roy's record setting road rally car, infamous for completing the highly illegal and dangerous Cannonball Run - NYC to LA - in less than 32 hours! The notorious car has gone sleeper. No more stickers. No more vinyl. Perhaps Mr. Roy is planning on setting another record - or breaking his own record. The stripped down, no frills car only has the bare essentials - night vision goggles, laser jammers, CB radios, sensors, radar detectors, etc.
