The Verizon IndyCar Series confirmed on Saturday morning prior to practice for the Honda Indy Toronto that changes have been made to the track at Turn 8. A statement read:
The wall at Turn 8 has been changed to the configuration used in previous years. The inside wall has been placed up on the curbing, giving an additional 6 feet on the inside of the track. In addition, the smooth concrete patches in Turns 1 and 9 were sandblasted in an effort to provide more consistent grip.
