Honda Indy Toronto becomes Ontario Honda Dealers Indy Toronto

The Ontario Honda Dealers have greatly expanded their role in the annual NTT IndyCar Season taking over as lead sponsor for the 2024 Toronto racing event owned and operated by Green Savoree Toronto. As a premier partner the dealers have helped to raise over $1 million during the annual Ontario Honda Dealers Fan Friday where visitors can attend the race for free with a voluntary charitable donation on the opening Friday.
Taking over Exhibition Place and Lake Shore Boulevard during the Ontario Honda Dealers Indy Toronto race weekend July 19-21, 2024 the fast paced motorsports festival has announced that ticket renewals, with complimentary paddock access, begins immediately while public ticket sales will start April 5.
“The Ontario Honda Dealers are excited to become an even bigger part of this Toronto tradition which spans nearly four decades,” said Chris Gauthier, president of the Ontario Honda Dealers Association. “We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to help grow and expand this landmark event for the province and we can’t wait for July to see all the great fans and race cars at Exhibition Place!”
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with the Ontario Honda Dealers taking the title sponsor role. The organization’s ongoing support of Your Honda Ontario Dealers Present Fan Friday has been instrumental in transforming the event experience into a family-friendly festival,” said Jeff Atkinson, president of Ontario Honda Dealers Indy Toronto. “We also want to thank Honda Canada for 15 years of tremendous support. This event would not be where it is today without Honda Canada, and we look forward to building on that success with the Ontario Honda Dealers into the future.”
Open-wheeled racing has been taking place through the Streets of Toronto since 1986 (as the Molson Indy Toronto) with the previous title sponsor Honda Canada Inc. headlining the race from 2009-2023. The Toronto race is IndyCar's second oldest street race and is a 2.874-kilometre (1.786-mile), 11-turn temporary circuit and Christian Lundgaard will be the defending winner from 2023.
In addition to IndyCar there will also be a number of supporting series joining the 2024 Toronto race; Sports Car Championship presented by Michelin and Emzone Radical Cup Canada presented by Michelin which will feature a race-within-race format with the Blue Marble Radical Cup North America series. Finally USF Pro 2000 Presented by Continental Tire and USF2000 Presented by Continental Tire will also compete.
