Toronto, Ont. (July 15, 2022) - Turn 3 Motorsport is set to race on the streets of Toronto this weekend as the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires makes its first return to the Canadian circuit since 2019. The 1.786-mile, 11-turn track at Exhibition Place marks the second street course on the calendar for both the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship and the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires with both series holding two races each over the three day weekend.

“I’m really looking forward to getting going here in Toronto. St. Petersburg was my first ever street course, and although I don’t have much experience on this type of circuit, I enjoyed that event and am looking forward to getting more street racing under my belt. A good start to the weekend will be crucial with only one practice session before qualifying, but I’m up for the challenge. Racing around a street course always adds some excitement to the event, so I’m looking forward to the weekend!”
#3 Josh Green // Indy Pro 2000
“I can’t wait to get on track at Toronto! After the track walk today, it looks like an extremely challenging circuit and will be a tough one to tackle throughout the three days on track. That being said, we have thrived at street circuits earlier in the season, and I’m confident we will do the same here!”
#32 Christian Weir // USF2000
“It’s going to be a tricky weekend here on the streets of Toronto, but I’m looking forward to the excitement of racing on this circuit. I think if we can stay out of trouble, then I’m confident we can have some good success here. I’m looking forward to getting the weekend started!”
#33 Spike Kohlbecker // USF2000
“I’m super excited to be racing on the streets of Toronto. I’ve never driven this track before, but it’s a crazy cool layout, and I’m looking forward to learning it and getting the weekend started. Let’s do this!”
