Honda Indy Toronto grandstand locations

The fence and the grandstands are starting to really take shape now at the 2011 Honda Indy Toronto. New fences and concrete barriers form the outline of the track. Pictured above are the pit lane suites looking east towards Princes' Gates and below just before race weekend.
The pit lane concrete barriers are in place running parallel to the stands - the left side towards the stands is the crew area, across the barrier is the hot part of the track. Here is the Honda Indy Toronto map of the site.

The sponsor posters are going up - but still no start/finish line painted yet.

Princes' Gates and turn 1

Across the road along the Direct Energy Centre are a number of stands, starting at turn 11, is the Dr Pepper stands. Looking from turn 10 towards turn 11, below, with the pit entrance on right and track on left, just under the pedestrian bridge. The Dr Pepper stands are just on the left side, past the bridge.

Shick Hydro Stands
In turn 11, just at the pit entrance and across the track from the Dr Pepper grandstands sits the Schick Hydro Stands.

Dr Pepper Stands
here is the Dr Pepper stand at turn 11, looking towards pit row and a closer view to the adjacent road.
It looks like half the Dr Pepper stands are on hold as Nunavut Road remains open and splits the stands in two. Once the road is closed and the barriers are up the stands can be put together. There will be a TV screen and a beer garden between the Dr Pepper Stands and the Ferrari Suites (above with canopy).

Turn 1 Suites

Sitting right beside the Princes' Gates (at the left side of the picture) and at the end of the Start/Finish straight away, the suites sit high for good views, especially of the turn which leads down to Lake Shore Boulevard.
