IndyCar driver @Justin_Wilson helped to present the 2inTO trophies for the upcoming July 12-14 race weekend in Exhibition Place. Justin races the #19 Dale Coyne Racing car and currently sits in 8th place overall in the 2013 series, with a career record of 7 race wins, including taking the checkered flag in Toronto in 2005.
The British driver joined Honda Indy Toronto President Charlie Johnstone and Jackie Chiesa, President of William Ashley as the event trophies were introduced to media on Tuesday, June 17. The custom made Waterford Crystal race trophies were hand-cut in Ireland and three complete sets were made for the both the full July 13 and the July 14 races as well as the Indy Lights race.
It’s not hard to find the flagship William Ashley store at 55 Bloor Street West – just look for the Honda IndyCar perched on four Oberon bone crystal teacups, sitting on top of a dining table full of china and stemware, in front of the store along Bloor Street. The car will remain outside on display for two weeks. The actual tea cups are only $39 and nothing special was done with the cup to support the race car – just proving that you don’t have to keep the gold rimmed cup only for special occasions.
