Iain Shankland is back with another gallery from the Honda Indy Toronto – round 10 of the 2012 IZOD Indycar Series. Here we have his raceday pictures from this street track – a highlight for both the IZOD Indycar Series and also the Canadian motorsport scene.
The race in brief
Following his final service stop with 30 laps remaining in the Honda Indy Toronto, Ryan Hunter-Reay was enjoying his Sunday drive on the Exhibition Place street circuit.
Hunter-Reay, in the No. 28 Team DHL/Sun Drop Citrus Soda car, inherited the lead on Lap 57 when JR Hildebrand pitted and upped his margin over Tony Kanaan from .6040 of a second to 4.0794 seconds in the matter of five laps on the 1.75-mile, 11-turn course.
Charlie Kimball replaced Kanaan as the protagonist on Lap 72, but the challenger didn’t matter. Hunter-Reay pulled away by 7.6 seconds with 10 laps left and — staying ahead of restart pileups in Turns 1 and 3 with three laps left — went on to his third consecutive victory.
