Toronto: Filippi returns with Coyne

Luca Filippi will be back in harness for the IndyCar Series' 30th visit to Toronto, having been called up for Dale Coyne's team.
Luca Filippi is returning to the Verizon IndyCar Series at the site of his best series showing to date, the Honda Indy Toronto.

The Italian will pilot the #19 IMPCO ComfortPro Honda for Dale Coyne Racing for the 32nd Indy car race on the streets of Exhibition Place in the 30th anniversary of the Toronto event. Filippi drove in the first four races this season for Coyne with a top finish of 17th place at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. He finished a career-best second at Toronto in 2015 to team-mate Josef Newgarden at CFH Racing.

"I'm very excited to be back with Dale Coyne Racing this weekend and to have the chance to race in the Honda Indy Toronto again," Filippi said, "I want to thank IMPCO Technologies, the ComfortPro team and Dale Coyne for giving me this opportunity. It's one of my favourite races, not just because I finished on the podium in Toronto last year, but because it's one of the best events on the schedule and I love to race on street circuits. I can't wait to get back on track."

The 30-year old has driven in 22 Verizon IndyCar Series races dating to his rookie season in 2013. He has competed in three races at Toronto.
