30th Anniversary of IndyCar race in Toronto

image (1)

This weekend will commemorate the 30th anniversary of IndyCar race in the city of Toronto at Exhibition Place.

The 11-turn track has experienced a few adjustments throughout the years when Exhibition Stadium went down and the Convention Center went up. This year a new hotel has been put up, which I’m sure will be full of guests staying for the weekend to watch the race. The pit lane has also been relocated on the opposite side of the track  for the first time in Toronto Indy history and several corners have been altered which potentially presents a psychological difficulty for the drivers this weekend.

Their are currently six more races left in the championship, it’s the ideal opportunity for anybody who wants to cut into Simon Pagenaud’s current lead and take the trophy home.

Josef Newgarden and Will Power, who run second and third currently, have the most obvious opportunity to get pass Pagenaud lead. In any case, this weekend they alongside whoever is left of the field, will all take a secondary lounge to Oakville, Ontario’s James Hinchcliffe.
