Due to various reasons, I have not had the time I needed to properly share my experience at the 2016 Honda Indy Toronto. It is really quite a shame on my part because the day I attended the event was perhaps the most lively events I have been to.
The reconfigured track resulting from moving pit to the outside portion of the front stretch, positioning the IndyCar paddock inside the Enercare Centre, the return of NASCAR stock cars belonging to the Canadian Pinty's Series as well as the overall ambiance of the 2016 Honda Indy Toronto provided a memorable time at the races.
The Verizon IndyCar Series paddock located inside for 2016 served as an interesting change. Providing a fresh change of scenery to watch the crews prepare race cars, it wasn't without a minor discomfort. Though the area was shaded from the hot July sun and any potential precipitation, I found it to be actually warmer inside than outside since a breeze was present through much of the afternoon on Friday.
Just like in every past year at the Honda Indy Toronto, the paddock delivers terrific photos and video footage. Attached to this post is two video compilations I posted on YouTube related to the Verizon IndyCar Series at the 2016 Honda Indy Toronto. One consists of an assortment of paddock and on-track action while the second is connected to the aftermath of an afternoon practice accident involving the #2 Penske Racing car driven by Juan Pablo Montoya.
