F1 to Jersey!

 

It is super exciting news to hear that F1 is finally coming close to the NYC area in 2013!  The race will be held in New Jersey right across the river—–with the race having a backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.  This is very exciting news for race fans living in the tri-state area, and marks the latest in the sequel of F1 coming back to the US after unsuccessful stints in Indianopolis and Detroit.   Obviously there is the Austin, Texas F1 return as well, however I (a) don’t like Texas and (b) think the east coast makes a better venue for F1 racing.

The announcement is expected next week!  Now if we can just get the WRC to come to Brooklyn…

Could F1 be coming to New Jersey?

(thanks to Stampchez [qw] for the tip!)

Being a NYC resident, i’m hugely excited by this article.  We have heard this all before, as a couple of years ago there was some buzz about F1 coming to Liberty State Park in New Jersey—-but this time, there seems to be some positivity regarding the possibilities.

DO IT BERNIE, you sad old geeza!

IEDEI meets the Audi TT-RS.

Found out some info on the TT-RS:

$65-68k, 300-350 cars coming to the US market, all coupes, all manual transmission (unofficial estimates, taken from a couple sources IEDEI has spoken with)

The sound of the 2.5L turbo 5 is amazing.  I saw this car today at Waterfest (VW/Audi gathering in held in New Jersey every year).  It was brought there by the Fourtitude guys and was provided to them by Audi.  It is the only TT-RS in the USA at the moment.  I didn’t get any chance to drive it or drive in it…however the exhaust note is simply animal…love it.

some more pics (sorry about the crappy quality…forgot my camera and took cell phone pics!):
