New Jersey not on 2014 F1 calendar says Ecclestone 24 August, 2013 Press conference announcing New Jersey F1 project in 2011 Plans to take a grand prix to New Jersey are in tatters, as Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone confirmed that a race backdropped by the Manhattan skyline will not happen in 2014. This year’s scheduled New Jersey race had already been delayed, and Ecclestone announced it also won’t be on the 2014 calendar because organisers “haven’t got any money”. Ecclestone told Formula 1 business journalist Christian Sylt: “It’s not on the cards for next year.” In the same CNN report, however, a spokesman for the event insisted preparations are in fact “on track for 2014″. He added that a statement will be issued after the 2014 calendar is officially published. But Ecclestone likened the New Jersey foray to Donington’s disastrous bid for the British Grand Prix a few years ago. He said that New Jersey “is like Donington all over again”, adding that it is “such a muddle and a mess that it is not worth doing”. Ecclestone said he was surprised that promoter Leo Hindery jr could not make the project work. “The guy is a multibillionaire and is well-known in New York,” Ecclestone told Sylt.
