Honda Indy Toronto Event Pleased With Strong Fan Turnout
|There was one small grandstand at the end of the backstraight. Other than that all the fans are in these grandstands and two sets of suites. Estimated to be about 15,000 people|
Scott Dixon captured the Honda Indy Toronto title yesterday, and the turnout proved that the Verizon IndyCar Series event "can still draw a crowd" at Exhibition Place.
Race promoter Green Savoree "doesn’t release its attendance figures." But Honda Indy Toronto President Jeff Atkinson said that he "expected the three-day turnout to be 'well over' 125,000."
The race has been "plagued by numerous issues over the years, but, with three Canadians in the Verizon IndyCar Series, the marketing potential has perhaps never been higher" TORONTO SUN
