Parker Thompson and Porsche Racing Return to the Streets of Toronto

Jul 13, 2022


The Honda Toronto Indy has been a critical component of Parker Thompson’s race schedule since 2015. The daunting 2.8-km street circuit has provided a rare opportunity for the Alberta native to race in front of Canadian fans and has hosted some of his most exciting performances. Following cancellations of the event in 2020 and 2021, the Honda Toronto Indy is back in 2022. A full schedule of racing events is planned for July 15-17. Thompson returns as well, joining Rounds 9 and 10 of Carrera Cup North America presented by Cayman Islands as the premier one-make series joins the festivities.

Piloting the #9 Pro-class entry of JDX Racing / Shell Tap-Up / Surgere / Byers Porsche / Renier Construction / Jersey Mike’s Subs / SSi Artificial Lift, Thompson has proven to be a top contender for the 2022 Championship. With the season eclipsing its halfway mark leading into Toronto, Thompson and team JDX Racing sit second in the standings. With wins in two races at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, six podium finishes, and no finishes outside of the top five, the duo has arguably been the series’ most consistent performers. In the second half of the season however, they will need to find a new level of performance to lock in their hopes for the 2022 championship title. If that performance can begin in front of Canadian fans at the Toronto event, that will be extra special for Thompson.

“This Toronto Indy weekend always gets a circle and a star on my calendar. I’ve had some incredible weekends here throughout my career – conquering an international field in my homeland in back-to-back years on the Road to Indy, then taking three podiums in two different series in 2019. I missed the event horribly in 2020 and 2021. Now we’re back! I’m excited to see the mark this incredible Canadian event will have on the Carrera Cup North America championship. It’s a great weekend to let the maple leaf fly!”
