Sebastian Vettel coming to NJ next week

Looks like Sebastian Vettel is coming to NJ on Monday... I wonder if they are going to bring his Red Bull car down from Montreal... hope he doesn't wreck it during the race!

http://www.racer.com/vettel-to-drive...rticle/244318/

Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel will drive a preview lap of the course at the Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial next Monday, June 11, and hold a media conference with race promoter Leo Hindery, Infiniti representatives, Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner and West New York Mayor Felix Roque.

The "Grand Prix of America" plans its inaugural race for June 2013, and has a 10-year agreement for races on its temporary street course. Event promoters promise that the race will receive no subsidies from either local or state government and will bring millions of dollars in spending to New Jersey and New York each year.

The 3.2-mile course will be run on existing streets in Port Imperial, Weehawken and West New York, along the Hudson River and at the top of the Palisades, with the New York City skyline as the backdrop.

Regulations don't allow the drivers to drive the current-year cars at media/PR events.

Also he'll be on Letterman next week.
