New Jersey signs operations partner

Race organisers working on the all-new Grand Prix of America have inked a deal for Sports Systems Services to handle various IT-reliant aspects of the event.
Despite exchanging volleys with Bernie Ecclestone regarding its viability for 2013, organisers of the Grand Prix of America have inked a deal with Sports Systems Services to supply key operational services.

The race, which will take place on the New York/New Jersey border and feature the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop, has been called into question by Ecclestone, but the organisers insist that all is progressing as planned, accepting that the F1 ringmaster is prone to using 'hurry-up tactics' to keep all on their toes. The team behind the event continues to work towards a June double-header with Canada next season, and reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel has already given the proposed layout the thumbs up having driven it as part of promotional event a year ahead of its scheduled debut.

Sports Systems Services will support the race in a range of areas, including accreditation, contract management, internal ticketing, and registration of guests and VIPs.

"As an organisation that will be running one of the world's greatest sporting events less than a year from now, we are partnering with companies that have a proven track record of success," Grand Prix of America chief operating officer Dennis Robinson commented, "We are very pleased to have Sports Systems, a global leader in event accreditation and guest management technologies, join us as a partner."

Sports Systems Services has been involved with all levels of F1 for 17 years, but the Grand Prix of America will be the first race taking place in its hometown.
