Toronto mayor John Tory announced this afternoon that the Honda Indy Toronto which was rescheduled to take place from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th July at Exhibition Place under the revised NTT IndyCar Series calendar has been cancelled.
The Honda Indy Toronto is one of several outdoor summer events that have been cancelled as a result of the COVID 19 global pandemic after the city cancelled permits for events during the summer and the race which operated by Green Savoree Racing Promotions was specifically named on the list of cancelled events seen by Paddock Eye.
In a statement Mayor Tory said:
We hope this will provide clarity to the organizers who start planning these events well ahead of time and they need to know now before they start signing substantial contracts, which would imperil their financial viability if we then later had to withdraw these permits because the health numbers weren’t good enough.
The NTT IndyCar Series which is set to start their season on June 6 with the Genesys 300 at Texas Motor Speedway with COVID 19 safety guidelines in place.
