Another possible venue for a future United States grand prix has emerged.

After talks for a race in Jersey City reportedly collapsed, it is now suggested that Monticello Motor Club, about two hours from New York City, has been earmarked as a possible alternative.

Autoweek published a letter from the club's president Ari Strauss to members revealing that the club - located in the Town of Thompson in Sullivan County - is in talks with F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.
