Rounds 13 & 14: Honda Indy Toronto. Exhibition Place, Toronto. 18th - 20th July, 2014

Originally a CART event, it was known as the Molson Indy Toronto and was first held in 1986 and won by Bobby Rahal. The race eventually morphed into a Champ Car World Series event and continued until 2007. Though the unification of the Champ Car World Series and the Indy Racing League was announced on February 22, 2008, the race was cancelled that year but returned in 2009 and has remained on the calendar ever since. It is the second-longest running street race after Long Beach.

This coming weekend, Toronto will host the third and final double-header of this year's IndyCar season. Like last year's event and even though it was aborted, Race 1 will be a standing start.

The track length has varied over the years, from 1.784 miles in 1986-95, to 1.755 miles from 1996 to now.

Track Layout:


Length: 1.755 mi - 2.824 km
Turns: 11
Lap record: July 17th, 1999. Gil de Ferran, Walker Racing, Reynard99i-Honda, 57.143 seconds, 110.565 mph - 177.937 km/h

Last year's winner, Race 1:
Scott Dixon
Chip Ganassi Racing
Dallara DW12-Honda

Laps: 85
Distance: 149.175 mi - 240.073 km
Race Time: 1:41:17

Thanks for this.

Weather looks like it will be 26-27 degrees C and fine. That's Not Hot by Toronto July standards.

A couple of weeks ago, James Hinchcliffe gave Sebastien Bourdais some trophy handling advice (with help from a Scott Dixon cutout):

There's a link to the video you can see the guy recording, in the description of the photo.

I had no idea the track length had changed (albeit just a bit) - must go and see what it used to look like.

Construction of the Direct Energy Centre led to the last turn having to be changed.

Thank you for that! I tried to look up old maps and didn't get anywhere. The turn 10/11 duo is certainly very different now.

Some folks I work with speak fondly of the old "photo towers" as shown on this map. Lots of other nostalgic things here too - Sports Hall of Fame, the old Exhibition Stadium (saw a few concerts there!), and so forth.

Where did you find that? That would have been great in the intro.

I've got a feed of sorts but no volume. It's very wet and Race 1 has been Red flagged.

The pace car lost it and Power slides into the tyre wall before the race got started and the yellow comes out.
