Streets of Toronto
Toronto, ON / 1.75 mile street course
July 15, 2018 / 3:00 p.m. EST / NBCSN
The 11-turn, 1.75-mile street circuit, which offers great views of downtown Toronto, is tight and has led to cars attempting to squeeze past each other in turns. Many times, only one makes it out unscathed. A long frontstretch leading into the Turn 1 Princes Gate, a hard right-hander, is a great place for overtaking.

TORONTO—They call him “The Ironman” and he proved once again why. Competing in his 295th straight IndyCar race, Tony Kanaan posted his best finish of the season–sixth—in this year’s most physical race yet. His younger competitors were citing it as their toughest race yet and with good reason. Temperatures soared into the low 90s making driving on the bumpy, 11-turn, 1.786-mile street course through Toronto’s Exhibition Place even more draining than usual.
TORONTO—On the streets of Toronto’s Exhibition Place, Matheus ”Matt” Leist posted his best qualifying run in the No. 4 ABC Supply Chevrolet since the Indianapolis 500. He will start 12th in the Honda Indy Toronto.
Toronto’s Exhibition Place hosts the second-longest operating street course race in the Verizon IndyCar Series. With the inaugural race run in 1986, this year’s race will be the 32nd straight IndyCar race, except for the one-year hiatus in 2008. Only the Long Beach, Calif. street course has hosted more IndyCar races.
