Vettel Will Drive Grand Prix of America in IPL G
The Red Bull Racing star and Infiniti Global Brand Ambassador will drive the all-new street circuit in an Infiniti IPL G coupe road car next week, ahead of the highly anticipated Grand Prix of America, due to take place in 2013.
As reported on Wikipedia, and confirmed in numerous other outlets, The Grand Prix of America is a Formula One World Championship race planned for June 2013 and beyond. The race will be held on a yet-to-be-constructed 3.2-mile street circuit through the New Jersey towns of West New York and Weehawken, along the Weehawken Port Imperial. The circuit offers the New York City skyline as a panoramic backdrop.
The track demonstration will take place immediately before a press conference where attending journalists will be invited to ask questions with Sebastian, Race Promoter Leo Hindery, and Keith St. Clair, Director, Infiniti Marketing Communications and Media. The event will take place at 2:30 pm in New Jersey on Monday, June 11, the day after the Canadian Grand Prix.
However, this event is not open to the public. It's one of those strict guest list things. (That's why we're not giving the location of the event.)
Vettel, 24, is coming off a fourth place finish at the Monaco Grand Prix and a sixth place finish at the Spanish Grand Prix during the month of May heading into this weekend's Grand Prix in Montreal. He is the current World Champion, having won the championship in 2010 and 2011. Vettel has the distinction of being the youngest driver to win a Formula World Championship.
