Formula 1 Exhibition Makes North American Debut in Toronto

The city of Toronto has been chosen as the host for the highly anticipated North American premiere of The Formula 1 Exhibition. Opening on May 3, 2024, this exhibition will be a must-visit destination for all fans of the sport, featuring iconic F1 race cars, state-of-the-art racing simulators, and never-before-seen artifacts.

The exhibition will be held at the esteemed Lighthouse ArtSpace Toronto, one of the city’s premier exhibition locations. With exclusive contributions from legendary teams and personalities of the sport, visitors can expect to see iconic Formula 1 race cars from various eras, along with rare artifacts and captivating video material. Additionally, for the first time, attendees will have the opportunity to experience the thrill of driving an F1 car through the use of cutting-edge simulators equipped with official F1 gaming equipment.

Following its successful world premiere in Madrid, Spain, where it became the country’s top-selling temporary show in 2023, and a record-breaking opening in Vienna, Austria, in February, the Formula 1 Exhibition now arrives in North America. As the fastest-growing sport worldwide, Formula 1 attracts millions of fans on our continent alone. With the upcoming Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal already selling out quickly, the exhibition promises to provide both longtime fans and newcomers alike with a chance to engage with the sport away from the track. It offers a unique front-row seat to the captivating world of Formula 1, providing an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages.
