The FIA released an amended 2014 Formula 1 World Championship calendar Friday, with the inaugural Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial listed as a provisional addition to a 22-race calendar.
The race, which had been off a provisional calendar circulated earlier this month, is set for June 1 date, a week before the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal.
“The entire Grand Prix of America team is thrilled to join the 2014 FIA calendar and we look forward to bringing world-class Formula 1 racing to New Jersey,” race promoter Leo Hindery Jr. said.
The Grand Prix of America will run on a 3.2-mile temporary street circuit along the Hudson River in Weehawken and West New York, N.J., with the New York City skyline as a backdrop. The 19-turn course includes an elevation change of 160ft from sea level to the top of the Palisades cliff.
The Korean Grand Prix, which moves to April 27, and a return of Mexico City on Nov. 16, were also listed as provisional. Russia will make its debut with a race in Sochi on Oct. 5. while an Austrian GP returns on June 22.
