@HondaIndy #Toronto 2015 will be in June

Official confirmation of next year's IndyCar race in Toronto was announced today with the date moving from July to June 12-14, while remaining in Exhibition Place.
The upcoming Pan-Am Games interfere with a July race period and negotiations led to talk of cancelling the race, moving it to a new location or trying for an earlier race. As the Verizon IndyCar schedule was finalized the June race proposed for Houston fell through and Toronto snapped up the date.

“Today’s a good day to wave both the green and checkered flags,” said Charlie Johnstone, President of the Honda Indy Toronto. “Scheduling an event of this magnitude is complicated in a normal year. Toronto is a growing city with many moving parts, and the same can be said for professional auto racing. There are a lot of details and coordination that go into the teams, the schedules, the races and the various sites, especially with street courses. We’re celebrating today and getting ready for the road ahead.”
“We are delighted with today’s confirmation,” said Dave Gardner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Honda Canada. “Honda Indy Toronto is an important event on our annual calendar and it’s something that draws us together with customers, dealers, partners, associates and passionate race fans. That’s important to Honda Canada and now that the date is confirmed, we can start preparing for our role in the event.”
