Honda Indy Toronto returns to July dates at Exhibition Place

 

After accommodating the PanAm and ParaPan Am Games last year by racing in June, the Honda Indy Toronto will be celebrating it’s 30th Anniversary at Exhibition Place(Lakeshore Avenue Strachan) on the traditional dates again this year, July 15-17.

“Honda Indy Toronto has been a summer staple for generations of Torontonians and festival goers from across Ontario and beyond,” said Jeff Atkinson, newly-appointed President of Honda Indy Toronto. “We’re working hard on growing the festival programming to create an event that is fun, exciting for all ages, and that builds on its legacy and connects with the history of the race.”

The Verizon IndyCar Series headlines the event weekend, featuring some of racing’s best drivers including Oakville’s James Hinchcliffe, Graham Rahal, Marco Andretti and 2016 Series Champion Scott Dixon, among others.

Aspiring young drivers to the Verizon IndyCar Series will also be showcased during the Honda Indy as the entire Mazda Road to Indy ladder series will return, which includes Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.

Pictured posted are from last year event , where Josef Newgarden (#67) took first place, boasting 53 points, a full 12 points over second-place finisher, Luca Fillippi (#20), and averaging 90.41 mph. Number Three himself, Helio Castroneves, came in third with 36 points.

Ontario’s largest sporting event is much more than the racing itself, featuring live entertainment, interactive games and activities, celebrity appearances, gourmet food, charity events, and countless other attractions. Celebrating 30 years, the organizers have guaranteed to make the three days action-packed, and have the whole family racing to experience everything the event has to offer!
