Toronto/CMEDIA: The Formula 1® Exhibition and Formula 1® reportedly announced about Toronto being selected to host the North American premiere of The F1® Exhibition. 

“We are thrilled to confirm that Toronto will host the North American debut of the Formula 1® Exhibition…Toronto is home to a plethora of sports, entertainment…an ideal position to be the first in North America to welcome Formula 1® fans to this one-of-a-kind show,” Jonathan Linden, Producer of The Formula 1® Exhibition, said.

The all-new F1® Exhibition which opened May 3, 2024 will run until July 15 at one of the city’s leading exhibition locations, the Lighthouse ArtSpace Toronto, located at 1 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON.

Filling over 20k square feet of exhibition space across six themed rooms, this massive showcase of racing memorabilia would display the past, present and future of Formula 1.

With a wide range of exclusive contributions from the sport’s most legendary teams and personalities, the exhibition would be highlighting iconic Formula 1® race cars from different eras as well as never-seen-before artifacts and video material.  

Visitors can also experience for the first time what it’s like to get behind the wheel of an F1® car in the state-of-the-art simulators using official F1® gaming equipment. 

Following a world-premiere run in Madrid, Spain, where it quickly became the country’s biggest-selling temporary show in 2023, the exhibition had a record-breaking opening in Vienna, Austria, in February, and then had its North American debut. 

“The F1 Exhibition has proven hugely successful during its visits to Madrid and Vienna and with Canada’s history and passion towards our sport, we expect that it will be popular with new and existing fans when it opens in May in Toronto…first F1 Exhibition in North America reflects the incredible growth the sport has seen in the region in recent years…creating new and interactive ways for fans to enjoy the story of Formula 1,” Emily Prazer, Chief Commercial Officer, Formula 1®, said.

Being the world’s fastest-growing sport, attracting millions of North American fans, the Exhibition will provide both seasoned followers and those newer to the sport with an opportunity to engage with F1® away from the track.

With this year’s Formula 1® Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal selling out quickly, the Exhibition would offer them a rare front-row seat to the thrilling world of Formula 1® and an unforgettable experience for all ages.

Pre-sale tickets for The Formula 1® Exhibition Toronto presented by TSN went on sale March 26 at 10am EDT and facilitates  fans to register at to be among the first to secure their entry. 

In collaboration with award-winning curators, artists and filmmakers, the exhibition offers unique insights into the world of Formula 1® by delivering a storytelling adventure across six specially designed rooms, spanning over 20,000 sq. ft.
