TORONTO July 14, 2022 – As you may have been able to tell by the major race course set-up happening along Lake Shore Blvd. this week, the much-anticipated Honda Indy Toronto makes its long-awaited return this weekend, July 15-17. After fans and festival goers missed out on this Toronto tradition the last two summers, the 34th edition of the annual gathering resumes.
The 2.874-kilometer (1.786-mile), 11-turn temporary course around the Exhibition Place grounds has a long and storied history on the INDYCAR annual schedule, ranking second only to this past weekend’s Long Beach, Calif. stop in years run amongst street courses and the U.S.-based series’ only international race. The NTT INDYCAR SERIES race on Sunday, July 17th again headlines the weekend filled with on track and off track activities.
Public tickets sales for all 2-Day tickets are online at hondaindy.com.
