Honda Indy Toronto Support Races Set
TORONTO – Organizers of the Honda Indy Toronto have announced the support series line-up for its 2014 event, taking place this summer from July 18-20.
The event will feature a thrilling and diverse line-up of on-track entertainment to complement the two full-points IndyCar Series races headlining the weekend.
Returning to the event after a popular debut in 2013 is Robby Gordon’s SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks, which will feature high-powered off-road trucks racing side-by-side on the challenging street course, including huge jumps, crossovers, whoop sections and many tight corners.
Exotic car racing will turn heads at the Honda Indy Toronto with the addition of the International Motor Sports Ass’n (IMSA) Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin, the first time the series has ever raced here on the streets of Toronto. The unique series features semi-professional drivers racing in one of the largest single-make series in North America.
“From start to finish, the on-track excitement will have fans on the edge of their seats this summer,” said Charlie Johnstone, President of the Honda Indy Toronto. “The team here has been very busy securing a top-notch schedule that will cater to everyone, heighten the excitement and let our fans know how much we truly appreciate them.”
Also, making its return for a second consecutive year is the Acura Sports Car Challenge featuring the Pirelli World Challenge, a competitive production based series that allows teams, manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers a chance to test their products in a race series limited to 50 minutes.
To celebrate young drivers getting their start in racing, the Honda Indy Toronto will feature Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship and, another new addition, the Formula 1600 Series – which has helped showcase some of Canada’s most decorated road racing stars, bringing them to the front lines of motorsport.
