TORONTO — The Honda Indy Toronto has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The announcement comes nearly a week after race promoters said last Friday that the event would not be run on its original scheduled dates of July 10-12.
That decision came after the city announced it was cancelling permits for major events and festivals for July and August because of the pandemic.

“We are extremely disappointed, and will miss the incredible fans who have supported us, but the safety of fans, participants, volunteers, staff, partners, and media will always remain our top priority,” race organizer Green Savoree saidn in a statement.
