Just four days after Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama was last on track, the series returned to action on Friday at Indy Toronto for Rounds 7 and 8 of the season.

Two practice sessions were on the docket for GT3 Cup Challenge Canada, racing on the Streets of Toronto and while 18-year-old Roman De Angelis led both practice sessions of the day, he improved his time during the afternoon session to an overall fastest lap of 1:13.941.

“All in all, a really good day,” said De Angelis. “Happy to be back at a street track after being kind of surrounded by grass and gravel pits for two weekends in a row [at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park last weekend and Watkins Glen the weekend prior]. A bit more challenging with the walls here, but if you stay out of them, you should be okay.”

Saturday at Indy Toronto will see two on-track sessions for Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama.

The first will be qualifying at 12:15 p.m. ET, which sets the grid for Race 1 later in the day at 4:15 p.m. ET. Timing and scoring is available for the race at

Race 2 is scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. and can be streamed live, flag-to-flag on the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada Facebook page.
