TORONTO – Single-day tickets to the Honda Indy Toronto at Exhibition Place, July 14-16, have been released to the public for sale.
Prices start as low as $40 for single-day general admission and $70 for reserved grandstand seats.
Two-day tickets are still available for purchase to secure the best seats in the grandstands for the entire race weekend. A limited quantity of Gold Level reserved grandstand seats for the highest rows remain and are sold only in the two-day option which includes a paddock pass to keep up close to the race cars.
The 31st edition of this annual festival of speed on the streets of Toronto is going to be another jam-packed weekend of racing action. The Saturday and Sunday headliners are set, while the support racing series — which will also take the green flag on the 2.89 km (1.786 mile), 11-turn circuit during the weekend — will be announced in June.
Sunday’s feature will again be the 85-lap Verizon IndyCar Series race featuring Canadian fan favorite James Hinchcliffe alongside last year’s winner Will Power.
Another Canadian driving hero, Alex Tagliani, will try to make it two wins in a row during Saturday’s NASCAR Pinty’s Series-sanctioned event, the Pinty’s Grand Prix of Toronto.
“Well, I’m really excited to get back in the streets of Toronto. Obviously, it was awesome to see how much the fans loved NASCAR back on the street course and the fight we had all the way up to the finish line,” said Tagliani. “It’s going to be exciting this year driving the Epipen Lowe’s No. 18 car. With the competition level this year, I think the fans are going to be in for an amazing treat.”
Before the race cars take to the track on Friday, the inaugural Indy Cycling Challenge is first up on Thursday afternoon, July 13th, to raise money for a great cause.
This event benefits Prostate Cancer Canada and will be organized into three separate divisions: Men’s, Women’s and Corporate Challenges. Teams will complete 12 laps, totaling 34.68 km, with each cyclist doing three laps.
“The countdown is on for the Honda Indy Toronto and excitement is building. Track construction will begin early next month, and some of the finest racers from across the globe soon will be racing again on the streets of Toronto,” said Jeff Atkinson, president of the Honda Indy Toronto. “Race fans purchasing tickets get automatic entry to win some cool racing prizes until the end of May including pace car rides, VIP experiences, autographed James Hinchcliffe memorabilia and other great prize packs.”
