|Grandstands continue to contract in Toronto|
Tickets to the 30th running of the Honda Indy Toronto are now on sale for the general public at hondaindy.com and the exclusive Champions Club program and benefits for renewal ticket customers has been extended to new ticket purchasers for a limited time.
From now until April 25, customers who purchase two-day grandstand tickets for the 2016 Honda Indy Toronto will receive exclusive benefits, including Paddock Passes, access to the Verizon IndyCar Series pre-race grid walk and an opportunity to sign the start/finish line.
"Our team has been hard at work to come up with exciting ways to recognize our customers as we get ready to celebrate 30 years of racing in Toronto," said Jeff Atkinson, president of the Honda Indy Toronto. "The Champions Club is a great way for us to reward our most loyal customers and those getting a head start on buying their tickets. It's only the beginning, get ready for more exciting announcements race fans."
The on-track activity will be fierce this summer with two fan favorites joining the competition. The jaw-dropping high-powered off-road vehicles of Robby Gordon's SPEED Energy Stadium Super Trucks will return for a fourth consecutive year to race the challenging street course. Exotic car racing will also be represented with the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama returning to the streets of Toronto. The series features semi-professional drivers racing in one of the largest single-make series in North America.
"Our on-track product is so diverse, from Indy cars to stock cars, off-road trucks to exotic cars, there is truly something for every kind of race fan," said Atkinson.
The Honda Indy Toronto returns to a double feature format, with the NASCAR Pinty's Series race headlining Saturday, July 16 and the Verizon IndyCar Series headlining Sunday, July 17. The event will also feature the entire Road to Indy ladder series, which showcases young drivers looking to reach the Verizon IndyCar Series.
