The Greatest Specticle in Racing
Just outside on Indianapolis, IN, and in the town of Speedway, is the Indianapolis 500. Called “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”, the Indy 500 is truly one of the fastest and most exciting events in sports, let alone racing. This event is a very significant in the racing world, being one third of the Triple Crown of Motor Sports along with 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix. The autos speeding around the track at well over 200mph are open-seat, open wheel “Indy cars”, with turbocharged engines and are made to go very fast. As the name suggests, the Indy 500 is a 500-mile race of 200 laps around a two-and-a-half-mile oval track and it truly one of the most exciting events you could ever see.
And while the main event is on Sunday at the 101st Indy 500, the entire weekend is filled with events. Race weekend is kicked off on Friday with Miller Lite Carb Day. Day one includes practice racing, Indy Lights Race, the Tag Heuer Pit Stop Challenge and a free concert featuring Steve Miller Band and Barenaked Ladies. Saturday is Legends Day, which has just as much excitement including practice races, driver autograph sessions and Firestone Legends Day Concert with country music superstar, Keith Urban. Sunday is the main event of the weekend with the Indy 500 starting always at 12:19pm. From the first lap, all the way to the checkered flag, you will see, hear and feel one of racings greatest events.
Private Aircraft Charter to Indianapolis 500 FAQ
What do I need to think about when chartering to Indianapolis 500?
Your arrival to and departure from the Indianapolis 500 will be simple with three options throughout the metropolitan area and near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The airport closest to the track and which quite a few of the race teams use is Eagle Creek Airpark – EYE. at just over five miles from the speedway, EYE is a great choice for guests arriving in turboprops and light jets due to its short runway. For those coming in larger aircraft, Indianapolis Regional Airport – MQJ, is a great airport with more than enough runway for all classes of aircraft. MQJ is just about 20 miles from the track so a quick drive of about 30 minutes is to be expected.
