Round 10: Honda Indy Toronto. Exhibition Place, Toronto. June 12-14, 2015

Round 10: Honda Indy Toronto. Exhibition Place, Toronto. June 12-14, 2015

Originally a CART event and known as the Molson Indy Toronto, it is the second longest running street race on the calendar after Long Beach. It was first held in 1986 and won by Bobby Rahal, driving a March 86C-Ford Cosworth DFX for Truesports. With the demise of CART, the race morphed into a Champ Car World Series event and continued until 2007. Though unification of the Champ Car World Series and the Indy Racing League was announced on February 22, 2008, the race was cancelled but returned in 2009, where it has remained on the calendar ever since.

Last year's event saw both races being run on Sunday, as rain on Saturday washed out Race 1. IndyCar officials therefore decided to run both races on Sunday, with Race 1 in the morning and Race 2 in the afternoon and both shortened to 65 laps. However, Race 2 was further shortened to a time limited race, after the rain returned.

The race has been traditionally held in mid-July but there were concerns this year's race might be cancelled, as it would clash with the Pan-American games, also being held in mid-July in Toronto but the race was moved to June and unlike the two previous years there's no double header.

Some Trivia:
The driver with the most wins is Michael Andretti: 1989, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 2000, 2001.
The team with the most wins is Newman/Haas Racing: 1989, 1991, 1992, 1995, 2000, 2002, 2004.

The track length was changed from 1.784 miles (2.871 km) in 1986-95, to 1.755 mile (2.824 km) in 1996, due to construction of the Direct Energy Center, which led to the last turn being altered.

Original Track Layout:


Current Track Layout:





Length: 1.755 mi - 2.824 km
Turns: 11
Lap record: July 17th, 1999. Gil de Ferran, 57.143 seconds, 110.565 mph - 177.937 km/h. Walker Racing, Reynard 99i-Honda, CART FedEx Championship Series.

My first IndyCar race ever. Never seen a DW12 in real life before and never heard how those machines really sound like. I actually did a little evening walk around the northern part of the circuit since it wasn't closed for pedestrians yet. Looks really bumpy, winter doesn't treat the streets very nicely.

Rain has stopped play, with P2 washed out. Is rain forecast for the rest of the weekend?

Announcers were quite sure that it'll be dry on Saturday and Sunday. It was a pity that P2 was cancelled but at least the touring car race was held. And it was very enjoyable.

Yep, as long as I get back home (next Thursday). Didn't take a laptop with me since I'm using public transportation only and wanted to keep my luggage light-weight.

Big concert this weekend out on the Toronto Islands, so you might see a bit of Toronto's crazy side out on the streetcars.

More that nobody saw a need to go out, so the session was flagged halfway through.

Pro Mazda\Indy Lights alumnus Scott Hargrove is on pole position for the Porsche race. Not a big surprise considering he dominated the series last year in a dual campaign alongside Pro Mazda (finishing 2nd in the latter).

IndyCar are streaming qualifying at 2:30pm E.T.

Edit

Qualifying's been delayed because of an incident with the Pro Mazda race but it's now under way.

Looks like a Red flag came out and caught a number of drivers out in Round 1. Both RH-R and Hawsworth looked peed off.

Power gets pole and the Fast 6 is a Chevrolet shut out.

Weather looked pretty dull in the morning but rest of the day was great. I even got rid of my Scandinavian skin tone when the Sun finally came out.
