Rain no is­sue at Honda Indy Toronto race

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTING LIFE - TORONTO —

Will Power doesn’t be­lieve that the pre­dicted rain on Sun­day will be an is­sue as he pre­pares to de­fend his Honda Indy Toronto ti­tle.

The Aus­tralian IndyCar driver spoke at a news con­fer­ence ahead of the event on the streets sur­round­ing Ex­hi­bi­tion Place.

The fore­cast is call­ing for a high of 24C with cloudy skies and a 60 per cent chance of show­ers, ac­cord­ing to En­vi­ron­ment Canada.

Power, 36, won his third Honda Indy Toronto last year after a de­ci­sion to pit on Lap 58 worked to his ad­van­tage. He said that his car doesn’t have any prob­lems in the rain and that it could make for bet­ter rac­ing.

Prac­tice for the IndyCar event starts on Fri­day with qual­i­fy­ing tak­ing place on Satur­day be­fore race day on Sun­day.
