The major changes at this year's motorsports event was the impact of the new hotel just south of Pit Lane. Not only was construction of the large building impacting the available land but they also excavated a historic foundation which they have to preserve. To accommodate the construction area they had to reduce the exit to pit lane and move the start of pit lane back up into turn 11 near the pedestrian bridge.
Mazda Road to the Indy includes three series, two of them are competing in Toronto - the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship and the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires.

The Honda World Junior Red Riders were beside BMO field and the IndyCar Paddock, tastefest, craft beer garden and the interactive exhibits located inside the track area. Outside the track was Victory Circle, the Dr Pepper area and in the Direct Energy Centre was the motorfest area which contained the sports car challenge and the support series paddocks.
