With all of the summer road construction projects going on in Toronto right now, seeing cars speeding down city streets is a rare occurrence. A notable exception will be this weekend (July 17-20), when the Honda Indy lands at Toronto’s Exhibition Place!
Race fans are thrilled that there are not one, but two separate races scheduled for the 28th edition of the Honda Indy! Taking place on the Saturday AND the Sunday of this coming weekend, both races will be of equal length, and both will count for full championship points! Many of IndyCar’s top drivers, such as Brazil’s Helio Castroneves, Australia’s Will Power, and Canada’s very own James Hinchcliffe will be participating. There will also be several other races for the IndyLights series (the racing series one step below IndyCar), and the F1600 series. Even for those who aren’t race fans, there will be plenty to do at the Honda Indy site. Tastefest will feature many popular food and beverage companies offering free samples of new products. Muskoka Brewery and Amsterdam Brewery will be participating in Craft Beerfest, which means Ontario craft beer will be available across the event site.
Get out of the traffic and speed on down to the Honda Indy! Exhibition Place can be accessed via CitySightseeing Toronto’s hop on hop off city tour by getting off at stop # 17 and taking the TTC’s bus 509 the rest of the way.
