IndyCar to lose Houston, switch Toronto for Mosport
29 August 2014 – IndyCar confirmed today that the Houston street course would not be a part of the 2015 schedule.
Twice a sight of doubleheader weekends, the races will not take place next year despite IndyCar calling the city "an important market" in this morning's press release. As a result, the series plans to keep its options open for future dates with city.
Also leaked today was the decision on the Toronto venue. Because of the upcoming Pan American Games, the usual street course IndyCar uses in Toronto would be unavailable, so the sport will now travel to the classic Mosport circuit (now known as the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) an hour east of Toronto.
Opened in 1961, the 2.459mi Mosport circuit hosted IndyCar five times in the 1960s and '70s, and the track is one of just two circuits worldwide (along with Watkins Glen) to have hosted IndyCar, Formula 1, Can-Am and the FIA World Endurance Championship.
