The IndyCar Series will be making just one visit to the state of Texas in 2015, with officials announcing that the Houston street circuit race would not return on next year’s schedule.
Having twice staged ‘double-header’ races through the streets and carparks of the city’s Reliant Park sports complex, series management did leave the door open for a possible return in 2016 or beyond.
Texas will still remain on the IndyCar calendar, however, with the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth remaining on next year’s schedule.
Also set to be confirmed is a move of the Canadian round from the streets of Toronto to the Mosport road course, one hour’s drive east of the city. The decision is due to the July event clashing with the Pan American Games.
The 2.5-mile Mosport circuit hasn’t staged a round of the IndyCar Series since 1978. It has previously hosted Formula 1, Can-Am and the World Endurance Championship categories, making it one of two circuits in the world to do so.
