The Grand Prix drivers would then turn right at 60th Street onto Anthony DeFino Way; make a sharp right at River Road onto Port Imperial Boulevard again and head south; then turn left on a service road; then right onto the Avenue at Port Imperial near the terminal/finish line.
Red Bull Racing’s Show Car recently completed a second All-American adventure. Driven by David Coulthard, the 2011 Championship-winning RB7 toured Liberty State Park and its spectacular views of the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty. The RB7 then moved on to one of the main arteries linking New York and New Jersey – the Lincoln Tunnel. Wrapping up its American vacation, the RB7 became the first Formula One car to lay rubber on the Grand Prix of America streets in West New York and Weehawken, New Jersey, bringing residents out of their homes to catch the historic sight.
