Red Bull Air Race: June 19th & 20th
Big Red Bull Air Race this weekend!
As Hoboken411 told you six weeks ago – this weekend is an exciting air-show event over in Jersey City. Those low-flying planes over the Hudson River you’ve seen this week – are their test runs for the big race on Saturday and Sunday.
Also, for those that heard about the NY Waterway Tours for the event should know that they decided to cancel the special cruises at the last minute..
No Formula One Race Cars for Jersey City
Back in April, Jersey City had proposed to be the site of the 2012 Formula One Grand Prix at Liberty State Park. Didn’t want to waste anyone’s time with an event that was by no means confirmed – and rightfully so. JC Officials withdrew their request to host the event, saying LSP wasn’t suited for that kind of event. Next!
For those of you prefer seeing events that ARE confirmed – then read on!
If not by land, then by AIR!
Red Bull Air Race New York – June 19-20
“The fifth leg of the 2010 World Championship tour will take place for the first time in New York over the Hudson River at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Two years in development, the Red Bull Air Race New York will be a highlight race in 2010, and will bring eye-level racing action seen across the globe to one of the world’s finest cities.
In close cooperation with host city partners NYC & Company, Jersey City, NJ and Liberty State Park, the Manhattan skyline and brilliant Liberty State Park landmarks will serve as remarkable backdrops for 300 million TV viewers in 87 countries worldwide.
More information about the US TV broadcast will be available in coming weeks!”

Who’s psyched about this? Who finds it too obscure to be interested in?
