The Indianapolis 500 is known as the ‘Greatest Spectacle in Racing’ for a reason. It’s an international mega-event, which attracts an enormous audience of over 250,000 spectators for the race itself, packing the grandstands that line the 2.5-mile circuit, creating the largest single-day sporting event in the world.
It’s a single-seater race like no other, and not only because of the size of the crowds that watch the race trackside and at home. Speed is truly the selling point, as the numbers the current generation of IndyCars produce is simply staggering, with the drivers averaging over 230 miles per hour during their Qualifying laps which last around 40 seconds. Watching 33 cars do battle on the IMS banking, driven by some of the bravest athletes on the planet, is an experience like no other.
As a pillar of motorsport’s ‘Triple Crown’, the Indy 500 is a race where legends of the sport are born: Foyt, Fittipaldi, Wheldon, Sato, Gurney, Castroneves, Franchitti, Cheever, de Ferran, and Hill are among the names to have taken wins at Indy over the past century. You’ll want to be there to see the next name added to the list…
