Racing Point to launch into new era with event in Toronto

Racing Point will launch their 2019 Formula 1 World Championship season with an event during the Toronto International Autoshow on 13 February.

The team that has risen from the near ashes of Force India, saved by a consortium led by billionaire Lawrence Stroll and close business associates and will use the event to introduce the ‘new’ team to the world.

Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez will drive for the team, starting with two stanzas of preseason testing – on 18 February to 21 February and then 26 February to 1 March – in Barcelona before the season opener in Melbourne on 17 March.
