Next year’s Indy car race through the streets of the CNE will be sponsored by Honda Canada and be known as the Honda Indy Toronto.
Race owner Andretti Green Promotions announced this morning that it had signed a multi-year agreement with Honda Canada for the title sponsorship rights to the company’s Toronto-based IndyCar Series event.
Scheduled for July 10-12, 2009, the Honda Indy Toronto will be part of next year’s 18-race IndyCar Series schedule and will also feature the Firestone Indy Lights Series.
Honda employs more than 22,000 Canadians, buys $1.1 billion of goods and materials annually from Canadian-based suppliers, and manufactures about 390,000 vehicles per year, according to a press release issued just before 11 a.m. today.
Additional details will be released this afternoon at a press conference featuring Michael Andretti, seven-time winner of the Molson Indy and a partner in Andretti Green Promotions.
