Dedicated follower of fashion

In addition to being a great racing town and the home of the Honda Indy Toronto, the Canadian city is a good destination for the fashion forward. The combination of both makes it a perfect locale for Chloe Roberts, Max Chilton’s artist fiancée.

As she toured around, Roberts filled her Instagram with stylish images of her ensembles and accessories. Oh, and we got another good look at the ring Chilton put on her finger in March.

‘Good morning, your majesty!

When the Verizon IndyCar Series race was done in Toronto, Chilton headed back to London for a few days. He greeted his homeland, and the queen, with a lovely shot from above.

Good morning your Majesty!

Stormy sky

Marco Andretti headed home, too, and apparently into a storm. But who really cares if it rains when you’ve got a view like this and fun friends like race car driver Corey Lewis?

INDYCAR drivers, go!

It is oft stated that race car drivers are quite like big children. Point proven with this tweet from Ed Carpenter’s wife, Heather:

Exit strategy

Race car drivers are always searching for just the right time to … well, use the bathroom. After all, who wants to sit in a soppy mess while piloting an Indy car at 200 mph. Avoiding that takes thought, as shown in Simon Pagenaud’s pre-Honda Indy Toronto tweet.

Doing the double-double

And since this post is busy generalizing about INDYCAR drivers’ habits, we’re adding another: almost all of them like California-based chain In-N-Out Burger. ESPY nominees Scott Dixon and Alexander Rossi capped their red carpet and party-filled experience with burgers and fries.
