Marty Hunt joins the Formula One Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial as director of race operations and the newest member of its senior executive team.
Hunt has worked in raceway operational management for more than 25 years, bringing vast experience and knowledge to the event. He joins an established team that recently welcomed motorsports leader Christopher Pook.
Other executive team members include YES Network founding chairman and CEO Leo Hindery, Jr., sports and entertainment veteran Dennis Robinson, and sports marketing and corporate development executive Dick Goldschmidt.
He also spent nearly 10 years at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, first as manager of track racing operations and later as director of operations.
More than 100,000 people are expected to attend over the course of three days, including practice on Friday, qualifying on Saturday and the Formula One race on Sunday. Most attendees will access the site through public transportation.
The race, which will receive no subsidies from either local or state government, is expected to generate more than $100 million in annual economic benefits for New Jersey and New York. The GP America headquarters are shared between Port Imperial, N.J., and Manhattan, N.Y.
