Media Invite - Honda Indy Toronto begins track construction

Members of the media are invited to join representatives of Green Savoree Toronto ULC, Honda Canada and professional race car drivers to mark the beginning of construction of the track that will be used in the Honda Indy Toronto. The 2011 track build falls on the heels of a major investment announced last year, which includes a contribution of $772,000 from FedDev Ontario.

The 2011 Honda Indy Toronto will celebrate 25 years of racing on the streets of Toronto with a first-class line up of racing, featuring the highest levels of Indy, stock, touring and, for the first time, exotic car racing. Drivers and cars representing the five competing series will be on-site as the first blocks of the track are laid at Exhibition Place.
