Honda Indy Toronto 2023 coming July 14-16

With 42 days to go till Race weekend, organizers Green Savoree Toronto opened up single ticket sales on May 31, 2023. The 35th annual Honda Indy Toronto takes place Friday to Sunday, July 14 to 16, in and around Exhibition Place at a blistering pace with the top tier, open wheeled NTT IndyCar Series supported by a number of other race series including Canada's own NASCAR PINTYS Series. 

Exhibition Place and of course Lake Shore Boulevard are transformed from the home of the CNE into a temporary 11-turn street course over the course of about a month. The world-class motorsport festival begins with Honda Fan Friday on July 14 with free general admission from the Ontario Honda Dealers Association and a voluntary contribution to Make-A-Wish Canada. The fast weekend continues with more practices and qualifying events including Saturday's IndyCar qualifying along with several races from the supporting series. Race weekend ends with the headlining NTT IndyCar Series on Sunday with the top three drivers making their way to winner's circle for trophy presentation, hat rotation and the always fun champagne soaking.

In addition to the action on the almost 3km track you will be able to find a food and drink festival, vendors and entertainment along Thunder Alley and several series paddocks to visit (paddock passes required for IndyCar). You can also buy a Pit pass if you want to see the cars and race equipment up close (except for the actual IndyCar race).

"The Honda Indy is a can't-miss event on Toronto's 2023 summer festival calendar. We are excited to continue the tradition for the 35th year," said Jeff Atkinson, president of the Honda Indy Toronto. "The weekend will provide festival goers a unique experience full of sights and sounds both on and off the track. Single-day and weekend ticket options at different price points help make the event enjoyable for everyone."

The 2022 Honda Indy Toronto NTT IndyCar Series was won by Scott Dixon, his 4th time in Toronto! However a number of current drivers also have multiple wins on the Streets of Toronto like Will Power and Josef Newgarden that will give Scott a run for his money. IndyCar notes that "Josef Newgarden is a two-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion and the winningest current American driver in the series", although he is only 4th place in the standings - that is a tough series!
