Work on the 2012 site of Austin's United States Grand Prix will begin in December, it has emerged.

The local KVUE News quoted Texas Comptroller Susan Combs, who attended the recent British Grand Prix, as saying groundbreaking at the unconfirmed site is set for late this year with a completion date set for June 2012.

And confirmation of the actual site for the track, somewhere close to Bergstrom Airport, is reportedly imminently due.

And amid rumours that talks for a race in New York are underway, Combs said she would be "very surprised" if there was more than one American Grand Prix in 2012.

"This site is the US Grand Prix, and it's in Austin, Texas," she is quoted by the Austin American Statesman.
