Seven racing series will be burning fuel and shredding rubber on the Streets of Toronto this weekend. Here's what to expect for the ticket price.

Toronto, ON - Today is Fan Friday at the Honda Indy Toronto and it kicks off the weekend-long festival of octane, rubber, and hopefully sunshine in downtown Toronto, ON. In its 30th year, the Toronto Indy weekend features a range of on-track and off-track spectacles and activities for all ages.

Racing fans will find Friday, Saturday, and Sunday filled with the sights and sounds of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship, Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires, Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires, and Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada presented by Yokohama.

NASCAR Pinty's Series brings stock car action to the downtown Toronto street track for the first time since 2011. And returning for their third year, fan favourites Stadium Super Trucks promises more jumps and airtime than any other series this weekend.

The headlining event of the Honda Indy Toronto will be the Verizon IndyCar Series as it brings the 11th race of the 2016 season to the Streets of Toronto road course. The Canadian race is one of the longest-running street races in the world, second among Indy car venues only to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The California street circuit hosted its first Indy car race in 1984 with Toronto's beginning two years later in 1986.

Off the track, the Honda Indy Toronto weekend offers so much to do that some attendees will find it hard-pressed to find their way to one of the grandstands to watch the racing. Here's just some of what's happening on the grounds this year for one ticket price:
