Honda Indy Toronto 2019 look ahead

Okay, the streets of Exhibition Place are booked for the summer running of the IndyCar
Series race, so let's take a look at what we know for sure.
Hitting turn 1 at Princes' Gate
One - race weekend is Friday, July 12 to Sunday, July 14, 2019; Two - NASCAR Pinty's Series, the Road to Indy series and Porsche Challenge join the IndyCar headliners; Three - it doesn't look like there are any track layout changes, pits still along turns 8 thru 11; Four - they will have both on and off track entertainment including Thunder Alley and the series paddocks and Five - beer gardens will be involved.
With a mid-July race it means that they have to start building the track by mid-June which is great as I like to check on the progress of the build of both the track and the track side suites and grandstands.

The week of the race is a busy one for the various teams. Staging, load-ins and scoring setup will take place starting on the Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday. Midday Thursday has a quick run of the two seater IndyCar and event car rides followed by a promoter track walk. Friday is the start of the race weekend with IndyCar and other series practices and the NASCAR Pinty's series qualifications - Fan Friday also has free attendance courtesy of the Honda Dealers of Ontario. Saturday is full of practice, supporting series races including Saturday's headliner race by NASCAR Pinty's Series and IndyCar qualifications. Sunday is the final day for racing with the Sunday headline IndyCar race of 85 laps starting at 3pm.
