Honda Indy Toronto will welcome the NTT IndyCar Series

Global information technology and communications company NTT has become the new title sponsor of the IndyCar Series in 2019 and beyond, taking over from Verizon. The announcement was made during media days at the 2019 North American International Auto Show.
“Having a strong technology partner is critically important to INDYCAR’s continued growth, so we are thrilled to welcome NTT as our new title sponsor,” said Mark Miles, president and CEO of Hulman & Company, which owns INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “INDYCAR’s rise in popularity is a testament to the fact that we’ve made the sport as accessible as possible to our fans, and we plan to continue in that mission. “We have a history with NTT through NTT DATA’s involvement in the sport with Chip Ganassi Racing. We know this partnership will help us attract the next generation of fans to what remains the most competitive racing program on the planet.”
NTT will partner with IndyCar for digital innovations and the development of the NTT Smart Platform. “NTT is proud to be associated with INDYCAR and accelerate the future of smart racing,” said Jun Sawada, president and CEO of NTT.

IndyCar returns to the temporary street circuit in and around Toronto's Exhibition Place during the Honda Indy Toronto from July 12-14, 2019, one of 17 races in 2019. The NTT IndyCar Series runs on street circuits, permanent road courses, short ovals and superspeedways - starting on March 10 with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg and ending at the IndyCar Grand PRix of Monterey on September 22.
Toronto's race schedule will include the NTT IndyCar Series, the NASCAR Pinty's Series, the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires and the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama as well as plenty of off-track entertainment.

The event features many attractions, including beer gardens, food trucks, interactive displays and activities, and charity events.
