One of the highlights on the IndyCar Series circuit is the July stop in Toronto. Each year the race in Toronto turns out to be one of the most exciting on the calendar. There are always bumps, crashes and controversy, a driver can still win the race even if he starts from the back – and that’s why the fans love it. But wait, there’s more! That’s right, there’s 2inTO! 2014 marks the second year in a row that Toronto will host two, back-to-back IndyCar races that are part of a fantastic annual Canadian Summer Festival by the shores of Lake Ontario.

Last year (2013) we decided to cover the event from a fans perspective for our own website – TravelBloggers.ca. It was great to actually enjoy the festivities simply as real race fans – no early morning photographer’s meetings, no daily deadlines – just soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the whole event – something we’d never experienced before.

The concept is appropriately called Thunder Village, and it will be nestled under the trees on the picturesque hillside overlooking Thunder Valley, which stretches between turn 12, affectionately known as Canada Corner, and turn 13.
