Honda Indy Toronto: Winner's Circle

Another cool thing I liked about this years Honda Indy Toronto was the placement of the victory circle. Usually it is placed in an out of the way place that fans can't get to or the view is blocked by the track fencing and fans miss out on the victory celebration.
Well not this year.
This year the victory circle was placed right in the middle of the track where you couldn't miss it. When you stepped off the Honda bridge into the infield area, there it was. You couldn't miss it and had to walk past it to get to the paddock area. It was also strategically placed right by the pit entrance on the track , which allowed for the winning driver to actually drive his car right into the winner circle area before getting out. It really gave the fans a chance to enjoy in the celebration with the driver, his team and supporters.
Kudos to Honda Indy Toronto for making the change to this years track layout. Another great addition to the fan experience.
Race winner, Will Power drives his car into the winners circle. Dario Franchitti who thought he had this race won until the dying laps still can't believe he came in second. But the thoughts of what could of been are quickly doused by the victory celebrations.As you may be able to tell from his hand gestures, this is Will Power's fourth win this season and he isn't afraid to show it.Here comes the champagne shower..Congratulations to Will Power, this years Honda Indy Toronto winner. Dario Franchitti, was second and Ryan Hunter-Reay third.
