About the track

The 11-turn, 1.75-mile street circuit, which offers great views of downtown Toronto, is tight and has led to cars attempting to squeeze past each other in turns. Many times, only one makes it out unscathed. A long frontstretch leading into the Turn 1 Princes Gate, a hard right-hander, is a great place for overtaking.

Race Review

Gustavo Yacaman and Sebastian Saavedra used to battle on go-kart tracks in their native Colombia. A decade later, the Firestone Indy Lights drivers battled for the victory on the streets of Exhibition Place.

This time it was Yacaman who prevailed in the Toronto 100 by 2.2874 seconds over Saavedra, who made the biggest move in the field from the eighth qualifying position to second. It was the second victory of the season for Yacaman, driving the No. 2 TMR-Tuvacol-Xtreme Coil Drilling car, and his third in the past two seasons.

"I was lucky to stay out of trouble and I got hit from behind and got bounced around but nothing happened to me or my car," said Yacaman, who placed third at Toronto the past two years.  "I was really happy with how the race went and when I got to the front I knew I had a winning car. We had some gearbox issues but still stayed in first position even though Sebastian Saavedra was right behind me the whole way."

Pole sitter Victor Carbone finished third, Peter Dempsey (in his first race with Belardi Auto Racing) posted a season best of fourth and Oliver Webb finished fifth.
