Nu-Era Logistics, member to Priority Cargo Network in Canada,  has been named an official partner of the Honda Indy Toronto as the motorsport festival featuring the NTT INDYCAR SERIES makes its return to Exhibition Place in July 15-17, for the first time since 2019.

In addition to sponsoring the event, Nu-Era Logistics Special Projects Division will be a key contributor to the track build inside the Exhibition Place grounds. Upon completion, the temporary street circuit will consist of 11 turns and extend 2.874 km (1.786 miles).

“Nu-Era Logistics is honoured to partner with Honda Indy Toronto and contribute toward the construction of this racing event site. Once the extensive work is complete, racing’s return to downtown Toronto will be the most anticipated event of the summer in Ontario,” said Jeff De Sousa, president of Nu-Era Logistics. “The partnership is a great fit for our company as it allows us to support a major community event while lending our expertise to the construction process.”

Nu-Era Logistics, a leader in the transportation industry, will provide equipment and help transport materials to the track construction site. In total over 2,050 steel-reinforced barriers made using more than 10 million pounds (4.5 million kg) of concrete will be positioned. Fencing spanning four kilometres made from approximately 410,000 pounds (185,000 kg) of steel will be erected, and nearly half a kilometre of tire wall barriers will line the course. Concrete barrier block placement has begun along Manitoba and Ontario Drives.

“We are excited to partner with Nu-Era Logistics and grateful to have the company supporting the efforts of our track build team as we bring racing back to Toronto,” said Jeff Atkinson, president of Honda Indy Toronto. “For the first time since 2019, we look forward to turning the streets surrounding Exhibition Place into a world-class race track, and Nu-Era Logistics will be an integral part of that transformation.”
